Members of the latest iteration of the Republican Party are less able to cope with criticism than their predecessors. Hilarity ensues.
For example, here’s Breitbartian and Bannon protege Sebastian Gorka invoking the If familiarity breeds contempt then a lack of familiarity must breed respect clause, which is regularly used by grade school students and annoying people on Twitter when someone says mean things about them.
A White House adviser made an angry phone call and threatened a lawsuit over a critic’s tweets about him, Newsweek reported Thursday.
The Newsweek story includes a recording of the lengthy phone call Gorka made after counterterrorism expert Michael S. Smith II questioned Gorka’s qualifications to be a national security adviser.
Gorka, whose experience and views on Islam have come under recent fire, phoned Smith Tuesday, asking to know “why this vitriol” was coming from him.
Just because he worked for a POS like Blightshart, is pals with white nationalists and his vanity and incompetent boobery poses a risk to the citizens of America is no reason for people to be rude.
Gorka repeatedly expressed confusion as to why Smith would attack him, emphasizing the fact that they have never met in person.
Y U talking about me? U don’t evn no me! #Wah :-(
“I look at your Twitter feed once or twice a day, and it’s half a dozen tweets about me, and I’ve never even met you,” Gorka said.
“Wow, are you defeating jihad by monitoring or trolling my Twitter feed?” Smith shot back.
“Gorka asserted my tweets about him merited examination by the White House legal counsel,” Smith told Newsweek.
Ooga booga! Maybe lawyers will look at your Tweets about me! And then. You’ll. Be sorry. Or something.
