Before and during the presidential campaign, Donald Trump was a frequent guest on the Michael Savage Show --interviews like this one were almost routine and Savage regularly touted his show to listeners as Trump's exclusive radio outpost.
Of course the election came and Trump scored an electoral landslide; and Savage has repeatedly proclaimed his show had a lot to do with it.
And it did.
Trump has curiously not done the Savage show since the election and the bombastic, SF-based talk-show host and author is furious --and has said as much, ripping Trump and his advisors with regularity --"He has betrayed my millions of listeners, the very people that voted for him, " said Savage recently on the air. (Heard locally on KSFO Noon-3 PM)
More than likely, Trump's people were non-too-thrilled over Savage's criticism of some of the President-elect's cabinet choices. At least that's the word on the street. Looks like Savage isn't alone in that department.
Trump himself invited Savage to the inauguration --and now Savage has said he will not be going back to Washington for the event.
Stay tuned for the latest, this whole thing could get interesting.
