    Liberals show over and over again that they are DUMB when it comes to sarcasm. Some might "pretend" to now know something is sarcasm in order to criticize and mock conservatives but there seem to be many that don't recognize it. Wonder what mental illness/personality disorder that corresponds to?

    Rush Limbaugh falsely claims Hurricane Florence is full of sharks

    Whenever a major weather event is bearing down, there are certain popular urban myths that tend to go into circulation on social media.

    Among the popular recurring offenders are false reports of a real-life Sharknado (a tornado full of sharks, for those who have not had the pleasure of viewing any of the six "Sharknado" films).

    Radio host Rush Limbaugh helped advance that myth this week when he declared on his show that Hurricane Florence has sucked up sharks from the ocean and is now full of said sharks.

    "New reports from NOAA aircraft show sharks have been lifted into the hurricane,"
    Limbaugh said erroneously in a Tuesday episode of "The Rush Limbaugh Show." "So those of you in the target path in North Carolina, South Carolina: In addition to the pig manure, in addition to the slop, in addition to the floods, in addition to the cars rolling around on the waters in front of your house, in addition to the mudslides and the landslides, now you might end up with a shark in your front yard."

    Limpblob's been watching too many B-grade movies and popping too many Oxycotin.
    What idiots.

    1. I had to make sure this wasn't The Onion
    And whenever I read this kind of thing I have to read the responses because I know Dems are dumb when it comes to this. They believe some of the outlandish things from the Onion and take it seriously (until someone points out its from a satire site) and they don't recognize obvious sarcasm from conservatives.

    5. LOL! Let's just forget for a minute that this is impossible

    Even if sharks were sucked up by a hurricane, does he really think that they can be hurled miles through the air and land on your front yard and be completely fine? They may be apex predators, but they are not invincible. Somebody should explain to Mr. Limbaugh why that nuking the fridge scene in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was widely (and rightfully) panned.

    11. he's clever, he's mixing fallacy with fact to downplay the seriousness of the situation

    it's deadly and something he can get away with if the worst happens
    No he isn't. He's mocking liberals with their FEAR, FEAR, FEAR!!!!!! hysterical attacks on Republicans.

    Satire has become extremely difficult - because reality has become so crazy - but Rush keeps proving he's equal to the task. And MMfA, ThinkProgress, MSNBC and their readers/viewers keep taking his bait and falling for his trolls! Rush should have a good time today mocking this latest trolling success.

    Then again, if basic cable decides enough Sharknado and moves to Sharkicane, maybe Rush gets a creative consultant credit for it.

    It is obvious that what we have here is a Sharicane
    Liberals! The real fascists.

    I prefer the term Sharklone, derived from "cyclone", the technical name of a hurricane, and can include typhoons as well. It also sounds better.

    I can see it now! Rush uses his royalties to fund The Rush Limbaugh Chair in Ichthyology at the University of Missouri!
