Former Trump Aide Seb Gorka Calls Climate Activist Greta Thunberg ‘Thunder Thighs’
Seb Gorka, former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, called climate change awareness activist Greta Thunberg “thunder thighs” during his show America First with Sebastian Gorka on Tuesday.
Gorka made the comment during a phone interview with the Daily Wire’s Andrew Klavan, after Klavan asked what Greta Thunberg’s surname was.
“What is her name?” asked Klavan, prompting Gorka to reply, “thunder thighs,” before actually saying her real name.
