Top rated radio talk show host Michael Savage was abruptly pulled off the air on Monday afternoon after launching into a segment on Hillary Clinton’s delicate health. The talker called his abrupt removal an act of “sabotage.”
Savage, host of the nationally syndicated The Savage Nation radio program, was discussing Hillary’s health and suggested she may have Parkinson’s disease when he was alerted that his show had been pulled from the air on New York’s WABC radio.
The host discovered that The Savage Nation was pulled off the air and replaced by the “Curtis And Kuby Show,” in the Big Apple.
Not long after discovering he was pulled from WABC, as Savage was telling his audience what happened in New York, his live feed was suddenly cut off to many of his other affiliates and a replay of an earlier episode was substituted for the live feed.
The host, a strong supporter of GOP nominee Donald Trump, took to his Twitter account to warn listeners of what happened, leaving only a single enigmatic Tweet about the incident:
I'VE BEEN SABOTAGED ON AIR. TO DESTROY SUPPORT FOR TRUMP. MORE LATER

The Savage Nation is broadcast on the Westwood One radio network and is syndicated over some 400 stations nationwide. The show reportedly has an audience of over 20 million listeners. Savage is ranked as the seventh most listened to talk show hosts in the nation on the Talkers Magazine Heavy Hundred list.
