Hopefully, he'll have time now to chat with Mueller about Hungary, Finkelstein and those Wikileaks shenanigans....

Dear nameless person in the White House,

Thank you for clarifying this for us.  But, perhaps you might want to answer why Sebastian Gorka was ever hired in the first place?

Regards,

The American Public
 
2017-08-26 12:03:37 PM  
So he still works at the White House?
 
2017-08-26 12:03:46 PM  
Is his wife still on the public payroll?

Anastacya: Schrodinger's Termination?


It's like one of those HR bullshiat moves where you can't say anything bad about former employees that were fired, you just confirm they worked there.

Unless it turns out he never actually worked there, he just showed up and was allowed in a lot...

Fixing the glitch would mean a Clinton being sworn in. But... I'll let this one go.

2017-08-26 12:06:28 PM  
Hopefully this would affect his chances of another job.
But we all know Breitbart is hiring.

So, what, he was shiatcanned then? Just like Steve Bannon got shiatcannoned?

I'll take that.

In other news, Sebastian Gorko released a 14 word long statement about his White House Departure today.
 
2017-08-26 12:10:23 PM  
Apparently Kelly pulled Gorka's security clearance while he was on vacation.

If he didn't quit and wasn't fired what is left?

Did he go on leave to spend more time with his Klan?
 
2017-08-26 12:11:45 PM  
It's complicated?
 
2017-08-26 12:12:14 PM  
I'm visualizing Mr Gorka walking away from the What House with a pink slip in his hand and his clothing in flames.

Can't help it.

Can you confirm he personally got a "you're fired" from the apprentice in Chief?  Has he personally fired any of his direct reports?

I need help here. I've been under the assumption that a core tenet of conservatives is stability. How does this new revolving door on the side of the White House fit in?

Well, they created jobs to install the revolving door, and they are cutting down on the staff and thus trimming the size of the government. So, win/win?

KELLY SUPERGLUES GORKA'S OFFICE DOOR SHUT, SPRAYPAINTS "fark OFF SEB" ON NAMEPLATE

Forces Neo-Nazi to shimmy through air vent, then drop ceiling, to get into office


Still does take hint

Gorka "...vows to remain in office until -- ow, quit grabbing me, OW!, farking Secret Service!" (tossed into trash bin near curb)

Trump seen eating banana, swinging from tire while masturbating
 
2017-08-26 12:20:16 PM  
i don't suppose they would let him take his 'desk' with him as a memento of his time there. perhaps they would let him take the salt and pepper shakers from it, though

skyotter: So he still works at the White House?


He's not working in the White House, he just hasn't left.  He's broken into a crawl space and he's in the walls somewhere.  They're trying to coax him out with a plate of cheese, but no luck so far.

Millennium: So, what, he was shiatcanned then? Just like Steve Bannon got shiatcannoned?

I'd be totally okay with both Gorka and Bannon being placed in front of a large shiatcannon. Can we work Cheetolini in there somehow too? Or perhaps we can use him as ammunition for the cannon...

Anastacya: Schrodinger's Termination?


Schroedinger's Nazi.

He is both in the White House and out of the White House simultaneously.
 
2017-08-26 12:23:16 PM  
"[G]iven recent events, it is clear to me that forces that do not support the MAGA promise are - for now - ascendant within the White House," Gorka wrote. "As a result, the best and most effective way I can support you, Mr. President, is from outside the People's House."

As Kelly scratches another name off his 'shiat can this farker' list.
 
2017-08-26 12:24:03 PM  
On one hand, it's great that unhinged loons like Bannon and Gorka have been kicked out of the government.

On the other hand, baby steps towards sanity are not going to make Trump a competent president. No steps will do so. He needs to go.

I can't confirm it, but it's fun to say and it really pisses off the Trumpets.

Can't, on mobile. Just Google 'gorkas twitter', that's what I did.

He was responding to Elwes tweeting "Good riddance. Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out." Asked why he had so few followers, having been in such a big movie.

Have you seen how much wealth the very richest have managed to accrete over the past thirty years or so, while everyone elses' incomes have stagnated? That is a whole lot of continuous and stable progress. No go back to watching Celebrity Apprentice: White House Edition. The Nazi just got voted off and the midseason finale is approaching.

I forgot to mention that in addition to comparing you to Trump supporters they'll accuse you of misogyny.

Ken S.: If he didn't quit and wasn't fired what is left?

Did he go on leave to spend more time with his Klan?


His employment status is like mine: not currently working there, but not let go either. Go in if needed but they don't need right now.

Wonder if they are doing this to shelter these people from direct scrutiny.

This should help: we stopped dealing with "conservatives" a long time ago. These are Republicans. Their only principles are self-preservation, stigginit, and profit.

One of the strongest signs of a functioning workplace is half a dozen stories about what happened when someone leaves.

Can you imagine what the morale is like in that White House? Or at the State Department? I wouldn't let my kid make copies there, much less work there myself.
