Americans in Florida and other southern states are dealing with the devastation brought on by powerful Hurricane Irma. Instead of focusing on the victims of the storm and figuring out how they could best help them, hosts on liberal network MSNBC instead focused their attention on complaining that people aren’t talking enough about “climate change.”

This first started when host Ali Velshi brought former EPA official Mustafa Ali onto his show and mentioned Rush Limbaugh, saying, “What do you say, Mustafa, to people who say this isn’t the time for the conversation, or people like Rush Limbaugh who said this is media hype to advance a climate change agenda?”

Then Velshi spoke to another guest, liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, who ranted about fossil fuel companies, “Of course they don’t want to talk about climate change right now because they’re the people who have enabled the additional problems to happen.” He added, “We’re not just looking at Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Jose — we’re also looking at record wildfires across the West. So, to me, this is like a drunk driver after an accident telling me, ‘Let’s not talk about drinking and driving.'”

Then MSNBC host brought on the network’s meteorologist Bill Karins, but instead of talking about weather, he went on a tirade about climate change, stating, “It would seem to me that one of the things that’s been a bit absent from the conversation the past few days: climate change. It’s hard to believe that all of this can be purely coincidental. I don’t want to put you on the spot as I put you on the spot.”

Later on, Melvin talked to fellow MSNBC host Chris Hayes and again whined about people not talking amore about Hurricane Irma in terms of climate change, complaining, “There has been a part of this conversation — at least it has seemed to me there has been noticeably absent over the last few days — and I know this is a cause that is near and dear to your heart, climate change, and the fact that what we are seeing play out this summer can’t just be a coincidence.” Do you think MSNBC needs to give up its obsession about climate change and stick to reporting about the actual emergency?
