Sebastian Gorka — Deputy Assistant to President Donald Trump — has made the rounds on cable news over the past few days, defending the administration following the news that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have dirt on Hillary Clinton. And his combative appearances have reportedly drawn raves from the cable news watcher-in-chief
According to Axios, Trump circled the West Wing on Wednesday night, praising his Deputy Assistant to White House staffers.
“Did you see Gorka?” Trump reportedly said. “So great, I mean really, truly great.”
Trump’s favorite Gorka appearance, according to the report, was his Tuesday morning spot on CNN’s New Day, in which he took a shot at CNN’s ratings.
“The amount of time you spend in desperation on a topic that has plummeted you to 13th place in viewership ranking across America — more people watch Nick at Night cartoons than CNN today,” Gorka said.
Other stops on Gorka’s media tour included; Fox Business — where he called media criticism of Trump’s speech in Poland “asinine and self-loathing,” MSNBC — where he repeatedly refused to answer a question about whether Russia is a friend or foe of the United States, and CNN — where he got into a testy debate with Anderson Cooper, who later called him “Hungarian Don Rickles.”
