Rush Limbaugh slammed those blaming Hurricane Florence's fury on climate change.
The radio show host made his comments as the major storm continued to push to the Carolinas.
"You know, this is made-to-order for the climate change/global warming crowd," Limbaugh said on his Tuesday show.
"Hurricanes and hurricane forecasting is much like much else that the left has gotten its hands on, and they politicize these things. For those of you asking, 'What's the politics of a hurricane?' Climate change is the politics of hurricanes. The forecast and the destruction potential doom and gloom is all to heighten the belief in climate change. My experience is that the storms are bad; you don't want to get into arguments over degrees."
He did note the potential damage from Florence is "off the charts."
Limbaugh added: "I want to share a headline with you here from CNBC: 'Florence Could Hit With a Punch Not Seen in More Than 60 Years.'
“Really? What was going on 60 years ago that caused such a 'massive punch.'"
And Limbaugh warned the media was getting set to blame President Donald Trump for the storm.
"Do not doubt me," he said. "No matter what happens in the aftermath here, Trump is going to be blamed for this hurricane and its aftermath, and they're gonna be calling it 'Trump's Katrina' — even, maybe, before it hits. You watch."
Forecasters warned Wednesday the monstrous storm could hesitate just offshore for day – punishing a longer stretch of coastline than previous feared.
