Rush Limbaugh evacuates Florida after calling Hurricane Irma a media conspiracy

Conservative political commentator and radio host Rush Limbaugh announced he will now evacuate the state of Florida as Hurricane Irma prepares to hit the state, just days after he called the hurricane an attempt to advance the climate change agenda.

On Friday's broadcast of HBO's "Real Time", host Bill Maher remarked that it's "an inconvenient truth" that climate change deniers have houses in the path of Hurricane Irma and members of the audience cheered and applauded the prospect that the deniers' houses would be destroyed.

"We have to be very vigilant", Roker said on MSNBC. He suggested that storms are never as strong when they actually hit as the media warns they will be.

Limbaugh hit back at his critics the next day, falsely accusing the media of "lying" about what he said while seemingly standing by his original assertions. "You have these various retail outlets who spend a lot of advertising dollars with the local media". But all of this is done on objective because - and once it's committed to, once you reach the three-day forecast range, which we're in now, 72 hours out, once you reach that, they're committed.

The players also looked a little confused as this has never happened during an worldwide cricket match before. Dilshan Munaweera smashed his maiden half-century while debutant Ashan Priyanjan also played a useful hand.

Rush Limbaugh had to swallow his words after insisting that warnings about Hurricane Irma were fake news.

He said the media makes impending storms appear bigger and more unsafe than they are. In just 30 years, the grounds at Trump's Florida retreat could be under a foot water for two-thirds of the year-further proof that there's a silver lining to everything, even climate change. It is not. This is life threatening.

Earlier this week, Mr. Limbaugh was critical of mainstream media hurricane hype, saying agenda-driven liberals in the media glom on to hurricanes to work up a drumbeat about human impact on climate change and big-government efforts to reverse or lessen the impacts thereof. But he is less concerned than Roker, believing that most people know that their local authorities are the most important voices to listen to in the case of an impending storm, and that Limbaugh is not a weather expert. They don't have to go through the environmentalist wackos. But millions of people rely on him for their news and he misled them, with potentially lethal consequences.
