Hurricane Matthew: Matt Drudge conspiracy comments kick up storm

that the warnings over Hurricane Matthew are a government conspiracy to make “an exaggerated point on climate” change.

The founder of the Drudge Report tweeted that the US hurricane centre had a monopoly on data and there was “no way of verifying claims”.

Critics said his comments were not only wrong, but dangerous.

Experts warn the storm is deadly and those in its path should heed warnings.

The category three hurricane has sustained winds of 120mph (193km/h) and is bearing down on the US east coast.

President Barack Obama has declared a State of Emergency in Florida and thousands of people have been evacuated from the states of Georgia and the Carolinas.

The storm has already devastated parts of Haiti, leaving more than 300 people dead, and has battered Cuba and the Bahamas.

Nevertheless, Matt Drudge tweeted: “The deplorables are starting to wonder if govt has been lying to them about Hurricane Matthew intensity to make exaggerated point on climate.”

“Deplorables” is believed to refer to supporters of US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has expressed scepticism about climate change, following comments from his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Matt Drudge also questioned data from the US National Hurricane Center, saying it did not match information coming from the Bahamas.
