Welcome to The Michael Savage Newsletter, your daily report on all things “Savage.”
In today’s issue: Michael Savage explained why Donald Trump, who in the wake of his third primary victory is causing the Republican establishment fits, would make a great president.
While the conventional wisdom is that political experience is a prerequisite for the White House, Savage believes Trump’s career as a billionaire real estate developer has prepared him to be the kind of leader the country needs at this moment in history.
Savage told his listeners:
Donald Trump is a builder who’s built magnificent buildings in New York, Atlantic City, Florida, golf clubs, Dubai, I don’t even know where. All over the world. He’s a builder.
I wouldn’t know the first thing about building a one-story house. I wouldn’t know how to put a foundation down. He does.
Think of the people he’s had to work with to build those buildings.
Think of all the complexity, to get the unions in line. To get the concrete poured and not stopped. To get the electricians to not walk off the job.
Do you know what is involved with that?
That’s exactly why he’s going to be a great president. Because he knows how to negotiate.
I could denigrate some of the other candidates, but what’s the point? They’re losing. They’re losing. The people already in their own way understand this.
Most of [the candidates], that I know of, have done nothing all of their life but be politicians.
The only ones that have done anything, that I can tell, on the Republican side, who have been something other than politicians, are Donald Trump, whose buildings speak for him, and Ben Carson, who’s done something real.
He’s a surgeon. And a great surgeon at that. A pediatric neurosurgeon.
I have to repeat to you over and over again. You cannot become a pediatric neurosurgeon through affirmative action. You cannot. It’s impossible.
You have to perform. And if you don’t perform, you don’t become a pediatric neurosurgeon.
