Before Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida, South Florida resident Rush Limbaugh endangered his listeners’ lives by telling them that hurricane coverage is nothing more than a liberal hoax to promote climate change.
Once Rush realized that Irma was no laughing matter, he evacuated Florida with his tail between his legs. Now, he is crying the blues and accusing the media of slandering him with “lies and misstatements.”
On his show, Limbaugh said:
“I’m going through one of the greatest smears of my career. This is all over the place that I told people there’s no storm. That I told people you don’t have to run away from Florida. You don’t have to evacuate because I said the storm wasn’t coming. I did not say that. I didn’t say the storm is not big. I didn’t say the storm was going somewhere else. The media did. There isn’t a thing I said about this that anybody can prove that I was wrong about,” the best-selling author added.
Limbaugh added, “I explained how the world works. I explained how local media seeks to hype these storms because it’s good for ratings. And it’s also good for grocery stores and advertisers that sell things you need during a hurricane.”
Limbaugh can’t accept the fact that he’s a con man.
