Didn't he work for a foreign government with sympathies to our enemies?

HOW DID HE EVER GET A JOB IN THE WHITE HOUSE!?

Highest office in the land and he gets canned like a convenience store clerk who got caught ghost-scanning beer for his friends.

/That's going to leave a mark on the old resume.

He was the emo-Nazi cosplayer with the made-up service record in the British Army Reserve who also had a fake PhD from some Hungarian diploma mill (and demanded everyone call him Dr. Gorka), whose staffers spent all day erasing his arrest record from Wikipedia.

If that ban didn't start eight months before, it's irrelevant

He did manage to always be first in line at the cafeteria. That should count for something, right?

You are wrong, for it is GORKA who was not banned! Deception is the deadliest weapon against your enemy. GORKA has kept you in the blind.

Maybe it's escaped your notice, but we currently have a semi-sentient merkin occupying the Oval Office. This kind of stuff tends to slip by it.

The sad part is he'll always be able to hustle up enough money to stay in the long-term motel.  But for one, shining moment, a neo-Nazi street hustler worked at the Whitehouse in a senior position.  My only solace being that this is probably the high water mark for Naziism in America.  I mean they got to hold all the cards and their play so far has been to start eating them right there at the card table.

How could  "Doctor" Gorka Nazi this coming?  It's like getting fired by finding out that your computer password doesn't work anymore.
They should have left a box with all his stuff on the curb.

Come on people, get it together already.  It's Sebastian v Gorka.  He worked long and hard to earn that Neo-Nazi call sign, let's not let the world forget it.

Yep.  I work for several people with mulitple PhDs.  I am always super formal in emails (holdover from prior workplace) and they constantly make fun of me for calling them Dr. in my correspondence.
 
2017-08-29 10:44:05 AM  
There is no point in asking Gorka what happened; you may as well ask the cat.

I guess this is a hopeful sign; Kelly probably said, "Mr. President, I serve at your pleasure. But it's him or me. No negotiation." Or words to that effect.

The little shiatweasel Miller is still in there though. He has to go. Inexcusable to have somebody, anybody, like that in the White House.
 
2017-08-29 10:44:12 AM  
Fun thing about Gorka: You can add "Mr. Bond" to every sentence he speaks.

"So, I decided, just as with Steve, we can be far more effective for the president on the outside, Mr. Bond."

It's actually the name of a uniform set for the Russian Army. Oddly it's what the rebel wore in Rogue 1. Gorka 3 is the pattern.

In reply, Gorka resigned: to The Federalist.

Phony martial artists are the same way.  They never just go with a simple black belt, it's always Nth degree black belt under a super secret master.  Although it does make it easier to spot them these days.

I'm seeing Samuel Jackson as the head of the WH security detail.

"Did I not tell you to get your funky ass out of my White House? English, motherf*cker, do you speak it?  Somebody hand me my broom. I gotta sweep up the trash. Look at him skittering away, looking over his shoulder. That's right, exit down that way, you keep moving and maybe you won't get this broom up your ass."
 
2017-08-29 11:11:40 AM  
Being a blabbermouth about security issues is probably one of the things that got him fired. Oh, and not knowing jack shiat.

Well, that's part of the problem, apparently he never got above the lowest of the three levels of security clearances.  In affect, he could not attend Nat'l Security Council meetings, could not get briefings on the same or review any intelligence that was deemed "top secret."

In that regard, it made the entire exercise of having him staff a "National Security" position a complete non-starter.

He should have been shown the door long ago, when he failed to get his "top secret" security clearance, which should be a minimum standard to serve in the White House.  BTW, at least 3 of the people that Flynn chose to be on his staff, couldn't even get the bottom level security clearance and had to be let go before they could even start.
