I don't listen to a lot of talk radio anymore. It's mostly audiobooks. But last night I did catch about 10 minutes of Michael Savages show as I was driving to pick up dinner. I just have to share what I heard.
You have to keep in mind that Savage has been licking the boots of Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president. Maybe it's the whole "Language, Borders, and Culture" thing or maybe he just obnoxious, self-righteous northeasterners. Whatever it is, he's been professing the virtues of a Trump presidency for more than a year.
Now that Trump has the candidacy it's time to walk back or at least lower the expectations of his voters and Savage is not happy. You might think he'd reevaluate his support for Trump or even his judgment, but you'd be wrong. Instead, he came up with a downright laughable conspiracy theory.
Trump is not the savior of conservatism. He's not the great white hope for America. He's just another politician who told people what they wanted to hear.
