Twitter Mocks Rush Limbaugh for Evacuating Ahead of Irma: ‘Decided to Flee the Liberal Hoax’


Earlier this week, conservative talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh suggested Hurricane Irma may be part of a larger “deep state” conspiracy relating to climate change — however, he later announced that he would be fleeing his home in South Florida.

This blatant hypocrisy was pointed out by many, as Limbaugh implied Irma coverage was — in part — a hoax, but decided to run from it once the danger got personal. When he first suggested the hurricane-related conspiracy, Irma was already on track to hit islands in the Caribbean where it has since devastated homes and taken the lives of at least three people.

For his flip-flopping, Limbaugh suffered immense public shaming. He even began trending on Twitter as many users took to the social media platform to mock and ridicule the king of AM radio:
