Conservative radio host Michael Savage was ironically attacked by an unknown assailant just days after he released his new book “Trump’s War: His Battle for America, about violent opposition to Donald Trump.
According to WND, their current writer was eating dinner at a San Francisco Bay restaurant called “Servino Ristorante” when a guy started mocking Savage’s legal last name “Weiner” screaming, “weener, weener.”
The guy then charged up to Savage and threw him to the ground, after allegedly aggressively pushing Savage’s poodle, Teddy, out of the way.
Savage’s legal birth name is Michael Weiner.
“Savage was not seriously hurt, but the incident left him bloodied and shaken,” Lieberman said.
In a statement to Lieberman, Savage spoke about what happened at the restaurant.
“I was leaving Servino’s restaurant when a total stranger followed me out of the restaurant and confronted me. He said, ‘Are you Michael Weiner?’ 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 pushed 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!,” Savage said.
Dan Horowitz, Savage’s attorney, said felony charges would be pursued against the attacker Rich Lieberman at 415 Media reported: “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,” Horowitz told Liberman.
