‘An inconvenient truth’: Maher mocks Republicans with lavish vacation homes about to suffer Irma’s wrath
President Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh, the Bushes and many other well-known Republican climate deniers are slated to lose lavish vacation homes or houses due to a “category five hoax,” Bill Maher joked on Friday night.
In all seriousness, he warned anyone in Florida watching his show to stop and get out and get to safety as soon as possible. He noted that the storm is so severe he’s seeing colors on weather maps that he’s never seen before.
“If you see yellow, like Trump’s hair, take extra care,” Maher rhymed. “If you see orange like his face, shelter in place. Red like his ties to Russia, just evacuate now.”
Maher went on to say that he noticed that the White House was prepared for the storm.
“Everything is in place. FEMA is well supplied. Melania has her stilettos on,” Maher joked, adding he calls them “flood me” pumps.
He mocked Limbaugh specifically for spending the week claiming that the hurricane was some sort of “false flag” created by liberals. Limbaugh was forced to evacuate like everyone else, though he hasn’t announced that he was wrong about the conspiracy theory.
“I’m not gloating,” Maher said. “It’s just an inconvenient truth.”
Maher called the fact that Limbaugh had to leave a “tough pill to swallow.” However, “if anyone knows anything about tough pills, it’s Rush Limbaugh.”
He explained that even though everything scientists have said about sea water getting warmer and storms getting stronger, Limbaugh and the GOP maintain their climate denial.
“The right wingers are still, ‘No, we can’t blame climate change,'” Maher cited. “I agree. My theory is that it has something to do with Hillary Clinton’s emails.”
