While much of the Trump administration, including this “president,” couldn’t care less about facts or reality, former advisor Sebastian Gorka often took things to a whole other level of delusional insanity.
Such as this exchange back in June when he claimed Trump’s tweets aren’t policy and that CNN’s Chris Cuomo shouldn’t spend so much time worried about what this “president” says on social media.
Or this back and forth Gorka had with Anderson Cooper where he kept deflecting from answering questions the CNN host had regarding Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russians that had been concealed for over a year. Even after Cooper pointed out that the meeting was verified by Trump’s son, Gorka continued to dismiss Cooper’s comments on the matter as “fake news” and a “witch hunt.”
Gorka’s time in the Trump administration was rather short-lived as he was one of the first people John Kelly pushed out when he took the position as Trump’s chief of staff. So, much like many other Republicans seem to do, Gorka found a home at Fox News as an “analyst” in another display of the network’s desire to be Trump’s version of state-run media.
Well, today at CPAC, Gorka physically assaulted Mediaite’s Caleb Ecarma, a reporter who the Fox News host has already challenged to a pistol duel in the past.
Once again, say it with me folks — you can’t make this stuff up.
Here’s the video tweeted out by The Daily Beast’s Max Tani:

While it’s not “assault” on the level of being punched or kicked, Gorka clearly shoves Ecarma. By definition, that can be called physical assault considering the aggressive manner in which Gorka approached Ecarma and the fact that he’s challenged him to a pistol duel in the past.
Mr. Ecarma later confirmed Gorka called him an “assh*le” and told him to “f*ck off.”
Whether anything becomes of this is anybody’s guess. While he probably should be fired from Fox News, I won’t be shocked if nothing at all happens to him. They knew what kind of lying scumbag they were getting when they hired him. Besides, I’m fairly certain the majority of Fox News’ audience loves the fact that Gorka physically assaulted a reporter and told him to “f*ck off.”
Though I can’t help but imagine what Fox News and the rest of the conservative media would be saying right now if a former advisor to Barack Obama cursed at and physically assaulted a reporter.
Just another day where a conservative proves what a lowlife scumbag he really is — as if we needed anymore proof when it comes to a lying pile of garbage such as Sebastian Gorka.
