Pro-Trump radio host Michael Savage, whose legal name is Michael Allan Weiner, says he was attacked on Tuesday at a restaurant in California.
Mr. Savage says he was in the parking lot of Servino Ristorante after enjoying a quiet evening with his 12-year-old toy poodle, Teddy, when he started being taunted. A man allegedly started yelling Weiner (wee-neer) and attacked him by pushing him to the ground, and when a bystander tried to intervene, the man punched the good samaritan in the face.
It is unclear if Savage was being stalked by the man or how he knew his legal name.Savage, who at 74-years-old still host the nationally syndicated talk radio show Savage Nation, and reaches up to 10 million listeners weekly was shaken but not injured.

President Trump has hosted Mr. Savage at Ma-a-Lago and thanked “The Savage Nation”, as Mr. Savage’s radio listeners are called, for helping him win the Presidency.

The SF Gate reports that Laurie Nilsen, a spokeswoman for the Tiburon Police Department, said officers responded to Servino around 8:25 p.m. on a report of a fight with no weapons involved. Teddy was caught in the middle of the scuffle.
Like other Pro-Trump conservatives, Savage is often harassed for his views. The New York Times best-selling author has written a book about his experiences with his poodle and constant companion, called “Teddy and Me”.
His latest book, “Trump’s War: His Battle For America” was released today. It is not known if the incident is related to the book release.

When police arrived at the restaurant both men had placed each other under a citizen’s arrest. Police are trying to attain surveillance video before determining whether or not to press charges.
It is really getting bad in America when you are openly confronted for supporting a man that is “Making America Great Again”!
