Rush Limbaugh Just Snuck Out Of Florida After Telling Listeners Hurricane Irma Is A Liberal Hoax
Updated 8 months ago

Rush Limbaugh loves to rail against all things liberal.

Even something as dangerous as a category 5 hurricane is no match for Limbaugh's "truth." On his Tuesday show, Limbaugh declared Hurricane Irma a "hoax" concocted by liberals to advance their global warming agenda. 

Limbaugh painted Hurricane Irma as a liberal conspiracy:

So there is a desire to advance this climate change agenda, and hurricanes are one of the fastest and best ways to do it. You can accomplish a lot just by creating fear and panic. You don’t need a hurricane to hit anywhere. All you need is to create the fear and panic accompanied by talk that climate change is causing hurricanes to become more frequent and bigger and more dangerous, and you create the panic, and it’s mission accomplished, agenda advanced.

He told listeners in the path of the hurricane not to buy into climate change:

If it ends up not hitting where you are, hits somewhere else, you might temporarily breathe a sigh of relief, but you’re still gonna think, "Man, there might be something to this climate change." Do not doubt me, with everything being politicized, of course it is an objective of some, not everybody, of course, but some of the people involved here.

He also spun a conspiracy that included "Big Water," who he claimed would profit from people stocking up on bottled water when they have perfectly good water coming out of their taps. 

By Thursday, as Irma barreled through the Caribbean on its way toward Florida, Limbaugh changed his tune.

He announced his show would be off the air for a few days:

May as well… announce this. I’m not going to get into details because of the security nature of things, but it turns out that we will not be able to do the program here tomorrow. We’ll be on the air next week, folks, from parts unknown.

He added that doing the show on Friday from South Florida would be "legally impossible." 

Twitter users were quick to call out Limbaugh's hypocrisy:

People also feared for the safety of Limbaugh's 15 million listeners:

If Irma is as powerful as expected, Limbaugh might have fewer listeners next week:

Limbaugh claims his views are " documented to be almost always right 99.8 percent of the time."

Let's hope this isn't one of the .2 percent times he's wrong.
