Donald Trump is apparently an expert on the wind. No, not the hot air that he spouts on a regular basis. The actual element of wind.

During a speech at a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the president took shots at wind-based renewable energy as he believes that, get this, 'wind does not always blow'.

He added that if Hillary Clinton had won in 2016 that the United States would now be running on wind energy and did a bizarre impression of windmills.

If Hillary got in... you'd be doing wind. Windmills. Weeeee.

And if it doesn't blow, you can forget about television for that night.

'Darling, I want to watch television.' 'I'm sorry! The wind isn't blowing.'

I know a lot about wind.

This is the latest in a long line of anti-renewable energy rhetoric from Trump and the Republicans but it is easily one of the oddest things we've heard Trump say in a long time.

Embarrassingly for Trump, although we doubt he has read it, the US Department of Energy's website does state that the country's power grid would be able to handle a situation if the wind was 'not blowing'.

Trump would later go in hard in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal, which is being treated as the antichrist by Trump supporters.

Another bizarre moment during the rally was when Trump talked about the 'Great Lakes' one of which resides in Grand Rapids.
