On the very day Michael Savage launched his new book “Trump’s War: His Battle for America,” the conservative talk radio host fought a battle of his own outside a San Francisco Bay Area restaurant.
Savage and his dog, Teddy, had finished dinner and were leaving Tiburon, California’s Servino Restaurant when a man charged up and began yelling “Hey Weiner,” referring to Savage’s given name, according to Rich Leiberman of 415 Media.
An eyewitness reported that the assailant kicked Savage’s poodle dog out of the way before grabbing Savage and tossing him to the ground.
Leiberman reports that neither the dog nor the conservative radio host were seriously hurt, but Savage was “bloodied and shaken.”
Of possible criminal charges, Savage’s attorney, Dan Horowitz, told Leiberman, “We’re going to seek felony charges against the man, and we’re going to investigate this as a hate crime because of Michael’s political views.”
Savage released a statement to Lieberman that suggests the assailant knew who Savage was by ridiculing his legal last name and reads as follows:
“I was leaving Servinos Restaurant when a total stranger followed me out of the restaurant and confronted me. He said ‘Are you Michael Weeener?!’ I turned to him and said, ‘Go away, I don’t know who you are.” I turned to leave and he pushed me and I fell down. He moved toward me to push me down and he shoved my 10 pound poodle out of the way to get to me. He has lied and said I pushed him. That is absurd. Both of my hands were holding onto things!”
