Trump's ex-adviser Sebastian Gorka slammed after body-shaming Greta Thunberg online
Gorka made the remark during an interview with writer Andrew Klavan on his show 'America First with Sebastian Gorka'
Former adviser to President Donald Trump, radio show host Sebastian Gorka, is being slammed on social media for making a derogatory comment about teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg. Gorka made the remark during an interview with writer Andrew Klavan on his show 'America First with Sebastian Gorka'.
Gorka was talking about Nick Sandmann, a Covington Catholic High School student, who settled a suit with CNN after accusing the network of disparaging him in January 2019. The conversation then turned to the Swedish eco-warrior who turned 17 last week.
"You know, these are people who will defend Greta Thuns — whatever her name," Klavan said, "What is her name? Greta Thunberg?"
To this, Gorka responded with: "Thunder thighs. Greta Thunberg." The clip of the conservative show host's controversial comment was posted online by Media Matters.
Shortly after Gorka's comments on the teenager's body, multiple critics took to social media to slam the former White House adviser.
"The disgusting Sebastian Gorka follows the toxic Trump playbook, calling Greta Thunberg "thunder thighs". These assholes love to attack females, especially young ones. Thunberg turned 17 four days ago," Twitter user Mark Jacob wrote.
While another social media user Ricky Davila wrote: "Nazi scumbag pervert Sebastian Gorka went from calling teen climate activist Greta Thunberg “thunder thighs” to saying he welcomed Iran’s attacks on our troops. I’d love to see this slovenly sack of rancid meat in total ruin, but @SebGorka blocked me, so I can’t tell him that."
"Sebastian Gorka is an ugly mug. Greta’s thigh size is irrelevant. My question is Why is he critiquing a minor’s body? Is he some kind of pervert? Gorka is a crusty & mentally warped human. It’s clear that he is jealous of Greta’s thunder," Twitter user Trina D Firey wrote.
Greta Thunberg, who rose to popularity through her weekly Friday protests outside the Swedish parliament a year ago, has inspired millions of people across the world to take to the streets and demand emergency action on climate change from their governments. She also became the youngest person to be named Time's Person of the Year last month.
