Dr. Michael Savage, with his hit radio show, hundreds of thousands of listeners and many bestseller books, was seemingly the figurative conductor of the “Trump Train,” as the president elect rode it all the way to Union Station. Every day, since the beginning when Trump declared his run, Savage supported Trump, imploring his listeners old and new to get on board. Michael had Mr. Trump on his show numerous times, even asking Trump to send him an inauguration invite with a black umbrella, because “it always rains at the inauguration,” Savage says.
When the news had hit that Trump hired Priebus as his chief of staff, Michael was on vacation. He heard through an email from a writer at Breitbart asking Savage what he though of the hire.
Priebus is “the enemy within,” Savage warns.
“He’s the RNC! Everything the voters rejected,” Savage tells Breitbart News. “He will steer Trump away from every policy we sent him to D.C. to change. He is the enemy within. He is [Paul] Ryan, [Mitch] McConnell, and the Old Guard. They do not want change. ‘Out with the old, in with the new.’”
You can hear all what Savage says at the 1:40 mark of this podcast, its worth a listen!…
Savage also reiterates, “This is not a bash against Donald Trump, only a warning.” It does seem pretty clear that Trump has been listening to The Savage Nation, as Trump’s ideas for his campaign seem to come right out of the Savage handbook. Hopefully Trump was listening to this episode. This could be, as Savage says, just a strategic move to get McConnell and Ryan to play ball, and politicking to get some things done. Lets just hope the rest of his hires are not “RINOS,” and they stick with the #DrainTheSwamp theme.
