On his show Wednesday, nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin noted that the media and Democrats are “already blaming Trump” for Hurricane Florence.

“We’re seeing our fellow Americans having to flee about one quarter of the United States geographically – millions – because their lives, their property, their livelihoods are threatened by Mother Nature. And MSNBC and CNN and the Democrats are already blaming Trump,” Levin said on his Sept. 12 broadcast.

Levin’s comments came as a response to media criticism of President Trump and the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) prior to the landfall of Hurricane Florence on the coast of North Carolina earlier today.

Below is a transcript from Levin’s show on Wednesday:

“The media—you want to know why so many tens of millions of Americans have nothing but contempt for you? Because we’re seeing our fellow Americans have to flee about one quarter of the United States geographically – millions – because their lives, their property, their livelihoods are threatened by Mother Nature. And MSNBC and CNN and the Democrats are already blaming Trump.

“We all know that natural disasters like this are horrific. We all know that government at all levels cannot possibly protect everybody. We also all know that it’s the responsibility of first responders, and all of our communities and states – local firefighters, local emergency personnel, local law enforcement and so forth – to be on the spot.

“It is impossible for the federal government to be everywhere with the kind of personnel and resources that are necessary to address these natural disasters. We’re not even 100 percent certain, at this hour, exactly where it’s going to hit.

“And then you have these political ambulance chasers and these media ambulance chasers who are already positioning themselves to attack the president.”
