Caller: "Are you really saying that they're sending bombs to themselves? ... I really hope that most of your audience doesn't buy into that, because it's so far off the edge, it's irresponsible."

CALLER: I really want to say that I feel it's reckless for you to pin this on politics and not appreciate that there are crazy people out there. And, God forbid, if somebody sends you a package, should I assume that you've sent it to yourself to get more attention?
MICHAEL SAVAGE (HOST): You would make a false assumption, but you're entitled to assume anything you'd like. So, I'm allowed to assume anything I like because I live in a free country. You want me to just sit here like a dummy and tell you what I don't think? Or you want me to tell you what I do think?
CALLER: I understand that that's what you think. But, where -- what do you think that this is going to motivate people to do? Not take this seriously? To say the Democrats are going to play this dirty? This is reckless.
SAVAGE: Are you telling me that they don't play dirty already?
CALLER: I'm telling you --
SAVAGE: I guess you were -- were you out of the country when they tried to destroy [Supreme Court Justice Brett] Kavanaugh with lies?
CALLER: Are you really saying that they're sending bombs to themselves? Are you that --
SAVAGE: I'm saying it's a -- I say -- I will repeat, it's a high probability that the whole thing is set up as a false flag to gain sympathy for the Democrats, number one, and number two, to get our minds off the hoards of illegal aliens approaching our southern border. Yes, that is what I'm saying.
CALLER: OK, well, I really hope that most of your audience doesn't buy into that, because it's just, it's so far off the edge, it's irresponsible.
