JUST IN: Conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh has had to flee from his home in Florida, as he is directly in the path of mega-storm Irma. In the process, he is being savagely attacked by mobs of liberals.
Limbaugh closed out his popular radio program on Thursday by announcing he would be off the air on Friday and broadcasting next week from ‘parts unknown’ as he and other residents of Palm Beach were ordered to evacuate before Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida.
He is facing criticism from the left since earlier in the week he delivered a dismissive diatribe in which he downplayed the threat of the then-Category 5 storm. Limbaugh stated that reporting on the natural disaster had become ‘politicized’ and was being used to advance the notion the climate change is real.
“There is a desire to advance this climate change agenda, and hurricanes are one of the fastest and best ways to do it,” said Limbaugh at that time.
His Friday program was hosted by Mark Steyn.
Limbaugh said at the end of his show on Thursday, “May as well announce this. I’m not gonna go into details due to security, but it turns out we will not be able to do the program from here tomorrow. That day the show will be in the hands of Mark Steyn. But we’ll be on the air next week, folks, from parts unknown. So we’ll be back on Monday. It’s just that tomorrow is going to be problematic.”
He then added, “Tomorrow it would be, I think, legally impossible for us to originate the program out of here.”
Liberals are jumping at the chance to shame Limbaugh. “Today”meteorologist Al Roker said on Twitter, “To have Rush Limbaugh suggest warnings about Irma are fake news or about profit and to ignore them borders on criminal #shameonrush.”
And in another tweet Roker wrote, “Do not listen to @RushLimbaugh when he says #Irma is not a dangerous #storm and is hype. He is putting people’s lives at risk.”
What liberals are ignoring is that Rush NEVER downplayed the threat of the storm–all he did was dispute that the cause of the storm was climate change.
