Michael Savage’s comment this week after being assaulted at a restaurant that it’s “open season” on Trump supporters applies to the president himself.
Yet another entertainment figure has threatened Trump, with Adam Pally, star of the new Fox TV show “Making History,” declaring he would like to assassinate the president.
The actor was asked by TMZ who he would like to “spend an hour with” if he could go back in time.
“I’d have to kill Trump or Hitler,” he said.
On Tuesday, as WND reported, the day of the launch of his new book, “Trump’s War: His Battle for America,” Savage was finishing up dinner at a San Francisco-area restaurant when the unnamed assailant charged up to Savage and began yelling. The attacker kicked Savage’s poodle out of the way, grabbed Savage and threw him to the ground, according to witnesses.
On his show Thursday, Savage commented on the trend of violent attacks from the left, recalling the rioting at the University of California at Berkeley last month in response to a planned appearance by Trump supporter Milo Yiannopoulos.
“This is not so much a societal problem. It is a liberal societal problem,” Savage said.
In an interview with WND about his new book “Trump’s War,” Savage said he decided to frame it as a battle plan because he knew Trump’s “big and unprecedented ideas” would face so much opposition from the left, including violent opposition.
“Antifa,” short for “anti-fascists,” have become a prominent part of the left-wing street protests that have swept the country since President Trump’s inauguration.

Last week, a Florida man claimed he was the victim of a road rage incident because of a Trump bumper sticker and a Trump/Pence flag hanging in his back car window, the New York Post reported.
Gregg Dunay said he was left battered and bloodied after an angry motorist refused to let him merge into an adjacent lane. The other driver rolled down his window and began cursing at him and said, “I’m not letting anyone with a Trump sticker in front of me.” The man jumped out of his car, punched Dunay in the eye, breaking his glasses, and sped off.
The Hill noted there also were threats against former Labor Secretary nominee Andy Puzder’s wife that caused him to withdraw himself from consideration, and Trump-supporting members of the Electoral College were threatened.
