Right-wing talk show host Michael Savage wants the GOP to reject Loretta Lynch’s nomination to be Attorney General, telling radio listeners on Tuesday that Lynch’s name is a bad omen.
“What a telling name, Lynch – a lynch mob is about to take over,” Savage said. “This woman is a radical that should never be confirmed for the Attorney General’s office. She is as dangerous if not more dangerous than Holder. She has no business in the Attorney General’s office; she is an extreme left-wing ideologue. Just understand what’s at stake: If he puts this one in, we’re going to have two years of Hell in this country.”
Savage especially took issue with Lynch’s opposition to new laws restricting voting rights, which disproportionately affect African-Americans, calling her a “radical leftist” pawn of Al Sharpton who is “too biased to be an Attorney General.”
Savage also reiterated his demand that Republican in Congress move to arrest President Obama, whom he called a “lunatic” and a “megalomaniac,” for his likely executive action on immigration policy.
“Arrest the man,” he said. “Arrest him, go and arrest him, take the sergeant at arms and arrest the man.”
