Former White House aide Sebastian Gorka went on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” on Tuesday in which he encountered an angry Democratic caller who accused him of treason.
During the episode of the C-SPAN show, the caller began by thanking Gorka for making an appearance — and then he proceeded to viciously attack the Trump administration.
“I just really look forward to when you and Corey Lewandowski, David Bossie and Don Jr., Jared Kushner, all of you are exposed for the treasonous b*tches that you are,” the caller said.
C-SPAN promptly cut off the caller and the host apologized to Gorka for being subjected to a profanity-laced tirade.
Gorka, however, said that he wanted to comment about the nasty treatment he had just received.
“Why is there such hatred out there — it’s just un-American,” said Gorka, who was not born in the United States. “This is a duly elected president! People need to get over the fact that we have a republic… This level of hatred — not good for the health of the republic.”

Here are the two Trump claims that the Pentagon chief refused to vouch for
The White House meeting Wednesday afternoon didn't go well for either party, according to their counterparts. Both sides are dishing on details, including a Democratic aide who said that there were two of President Donald Trump's claims that his own Pentagon chief wouldn't vouch for.
At the onset of the meeting, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) began by reading a quote from Gen. James Mattis, who briefly served in Trump's administration.
"But POTUS cut Schumer off," reported PBS News correspondent Lisa Desjardins. Trump then "said that Gen Mattis was: 'the world’s most overrated general. You know why? He wasn’t tough enough. I captured ISIS. Mattis said it would take 2 yrs. I captured them in 1 month."
Former Clinton lawyer scolds Trump’s White House counsel on impeachment: ‘we never considered’ behaving this way
On Tuesday, Lanny Breuer, a special counsel who worked for President Bill Clinton's White House, wrote an open letter in the Washington Post to President Donald Trump's White House Counsel Pat Cipollone — telling him that, while he understands an impeachment is a horrible thing for an administration to go through, Clinton and his lawyers would never have behaved the way Trump is now.
"In 1998, we felt under siege," wrote Breuer. "We argued at the time, as you do in your letter, that Congress should provide additional procedural protections to the president ... For example, instead of conducting its own investigation, the committee relied almost exclusively on [independent counsel Ken] Starr’s report, which had serious flaws. The House took only three months to adopt articles of impeachment, and we had only two days to present our witnesses. The president’s personal lawyer, David Kendall, had only 30 minutes to question Starr. We felt this was deeply unfair and a derogation of the House’s constitutional duty to investigate thoroughly whether impeachment was warranted."
White House leaked ‘insane letter’ to Fox host — that makes Trump look ridiculously ‘dumb’
President Donald Trump was ridiculed on Wednesday after a letter was leaked that President Donald Trump sent to Turkish President Recep Erdo?an.
The letter was sent a week ago, on October 9th.
A copy of the letter, where Trump warned Erdo?an not to be a fool, was obtained by Fox Business personality Trish Regan.
Commentary on the letter was swift -- and brutal.
Here's some of what people were saying:
