Hungary?

Oh, Breitbart.  Maybe he and O'Keefe can team up for more of the award winning investigative journalism Breitbart is known for.  Have convicted felon Dinesh D'Sousa direct and "I'm not fired, I quit!" Bannon producing.

Kelly wasn't gonna leave a Bannon loyalist anywhere near his WH team. If Gorka resigned, he was asked to do it.

Umm... turn in your geek card. Now. That was Kenobi, not Vader.

I'm trying to think if there is anyone directly connected to Trump that doesn't want to make me punch the television when I hear them speak.

Gorka was such a pompous ass it was ridiculous.

Did he ever leave Breitbart?
 
2017-08-27 09:25:21 AM  
Dammit. I was hoping he'd vanished off to Hungary and I'd never hear of him again except perhaps in the context of a headline like "Today in a horrific accident some are calling Divine Judgement..."

Yup, he was there to spew vile racist talking points from an 'intellectual' standpoint, to provide and substantiate fake studies and statistics for other racists to post.

Yeah, but Vader was a good guy at the very end. I imagine Gorka imagined himself like Palpatine, ended up more like Porkins.
 
2017-08-27 09:35:06 AM  
In a resignation letter published Friday night by The Federalist and confirmed by POLITICO, Gorka cited "forces" that do not support President Donald Trump's "MAGA promise" as his reasoning for leaving the West Wing.

Roughly translated: "The President is surrounded by those who see real threats to the United States and are urging him to respond with practical and effective solutions that will undo the massive amounts of chaos that I was paid to sow. I will not rest until these forces are dealt with, and I can collect my payday from my handlers in Moscow..."

 No. Vader had a moment of redemption, and started his career trying to do the right thing.

Porkins valiantly died for a good cause. Gorka is more like Jabba's guard who got left at the base when everybody else went to the Sarlacc.

The guy who was the only vocal Trump supporter my old office had his cube filled with Star Wars knick-knacks - figures, spaceships, etc. Not unusual as programmers are extra geeky, but I always thought he was a bit off for some reason. It took me a while to realize what it was. All his Star Wars goodies were from the Empire. He had no Rebel figures, etc. - not a "good guy" to be seen in the whole lot. Weird.

I guess Trumpers identify with the authoritarianism of the Empire.

Ah Breitbart, that wretched hive of scum and villainy known through out the galaxy.
Until recently it was also known as one of the places the Trump could go to get his ego fluffed.
Looks like all he has left is FOX News and Stormfront.

It isn't bullshiat.

It is covered in shiat but that's only because he used a very absorbent brand of paper.
 
2017-08-27 10:34:05 AM  
This doesn't mean he's "gone". When Trump fired Bannon, a reporter who follows these guys said Trump routinely calls the people he fired (yes fired) to ask their opinion on things. Hell, Trump's lawyers had to make him stop calling Manafort. So even tho Bannon and Gorka are gone, they will still have an influence.

That's the problem with a Gorka infestation on a planet. If you don't burn everything down with fire, they release spores that can result in future Gorkas.
