For a while I wondered why Sebastian v. Gorka, or Shere Khan from the Jungle Book given human form, had been allowed outside the hermetic right-wing media biosphere. He’s shown up on CNN, each time reciting what he claimed were their poor ratings, letting them know he felt it was beneath him to have to appear explain how the Junior Don was innocent of all wrongdoing on a channel whose numbers were lower than Nick at Nite. It must have taken all his restraint for Anderson Cooper not to roll his eyes.
It ends up that this is what Il Douché wants to see on all the TV he’s not watching. A haughty Neo-Nazi who will put that “Fake News” in its place. According to the semi-professional stenographers masquerading as White House Correspondents for Breitbart, Tr**p and his nationalist base see Gorka as “a rock star” (which makes you wonder what music they’ve been listening to lately).
Gorka is the rare wonkish television surrogate who can also, to use a rasslin’ term, cut quite the promo. His foreign accent makes him sound like he’s a bit of a heel, but Trump’s base sees him as their heel who is eviscerating Trump’s foes in the legacy media.
The Junior Don was so impressed he tweeted that “Gorka’s a SAVAGE!”
Because savagery is what Tr**pism respects. And they wonder why people hate them so.
