    Remember, Donald Trump hates wind turbines more than he hates Rosie O'Donnell. Here's a compendium of his most gloriously insane anti-wind power tweets over the years. Trump's base of operations is in Manhattan, and, really, this has got to be a Trump-affiliated entity. There's no other valid explanation.
