Many prominent conservatives that sacrificed a year of their lives to get Trump elected, are angry to say the least. Michael Savage is one of them. Savage has touted Trump and Trumpism for the last year and a half. He has gotten on air every single day to talk to the millions of listeners he has and tell them why Trump will be good for this nation. Savage obviously has made it clear that the strikes on the airfield won’t deter him from continuing to support Trump, however he makes his case for why he believes that Trump was coerced into this strike by ‘traitors’ from within the Trump administration.
Savage points out that Trump supporters thought they were voting for someone who would stand up against the neocon warmongers. Savage reminds his listeners that Assad himself has zero reason for striking his own people with gas bombs, not to mention Savage, an epidimiologist, claims that it wasn’t even sarin gas, it was phosgene gas. Savage continues that it was most likely ISIS or some other Islamic radical group that launched the gas attack because Assad was destroying ISIS in the region with Putin’s help and ISIS’ end goal is to take control of Syria and get Assad out. The only way that ISIS will be successful in getting Assad out would be to stage an attack like this one, and cause America or one of it’s allies to react with a regime change approach and remove Assad so that ISIS can move in.
“People in Trump’s own sphere are turning him towards the beating war drums,” he told his listeners. “ Everyone on the left, neoliberals like Hillary Clinton and neocons like John McCain are all smiles, and touting support for Trump’s decision. Savage, just like countless other Trump supporters, believe that this was a false flag to trigger an emotional emotional reaction from Donald Trump, and that it was the coverts around Trump like Jared Kushner that are turning Trump into a neocon. Savage asks his listeners what most of us are wondering right now:
“Who got to you, Mr. President? Who is whispering in your ear and could have made you make this dramatic of a change towards Russia in just three days?”
Savage stated that he believes it’s “the generals,” who Trump gave “great power in his administration, are using it to their advantage just like in World War I.”
“Like Trump, Woodrow Wilson ran on an ‘America first’ platform. He was elected largely because he kept us out of the war in Europe,” Savage said. “But someone got to him, too, ” Savage continues.
Savage stated that it was “generals who rushed world powers in World War I, and it’s happening again.”
Here is the podcast for The Savage Nation that aired following the airstrikes.
