NBC Weatherman Al Roker Just HUMILIATED Rush Limbaugh For Risking People’s Lives In Midst Of Hurricane Irma

By  | 

NBC meteorologist Al Roker slammed Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday after the conservative radio host suggested warnings about Hurricane Irma were driven by political agendas around climate change.

The longtime “Today” personality, “America’s Weatherman,” took to Twitter to slam Limbaugh in two tweets while using a #ShameOnRush hashtag in a message to his 1.7 million followers.

“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,” wrote the 63-year-old Roker.

“To have @rushlimbaugh suggest the warnings about #Irma are #fake or about profit and to ignore them borders on criminal. #ShameOnRush,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.

Limbaugh fired back at Roker on his radio show Wednesday, insisting he never called Hurricane Irma, currently a Category 5 storm, “fake.”

“I don’t think any of these people actually listen. They probably got an out-of-context, erroneous report of things I didn’t say yesterday and tweeted that I’m a hurricane denier,” said Limbaugh. “Which, by the way, does that prove that these people are using the storm to advance the climate change agenda?”

Roker’s criticism appeared to be in response to Limbaugh’s Tuesday commentary on the storm, during which he suggested the warnings serve to advance climate change agendas and local businesses that profit off of customers stocking up on supplies.

Limbaugh, a resident of Palm Beach, Fla., said while he’s “not a meteorologist,” and nothing he says “should be considered to be a forecast or a prediction,” creating panic around hurricanes helps advance an agenda around climate change.
