During a broadcast this Sunday morning of C-SPAN’s Washington Journal featuring former Trump deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka, a viewer called in and slammed him as a “grifter” and “propagandist.”
The call came from a woman named Amy from Georgia, who also told the show’s host that C-SPAN should devote more time to interviewing people who affect politics in a “positive way.”
“We’re living in very precarious times,” Amy said. “Education for the public is very important, and when I watch C-SPAN, I like to listen to my fellow Americans, the news, the journalists you have on, experts that you have on — this morning you have someone who is a known grifter, propagandist, provocateur.”
“I don’t think he’s going to add anything to the body politic in any kind of positive way,” she continued.
Amy went on to encourage the moderator to take note of this “very dangerous time where misinformation is such a huge problem” and to “choose your guests more thoughtfully.”
“This guy is dangerous,” she said, as Gorka’s brow slightly furrowed. “He likes to be dangerous, he likes to provoke. He doesn’t have our best interests at heart. I don’t mind hearing conservative views, I just want them to be accurate, fair, above board.”

When the call ended, Gorka complained the Amy was just another example of “the left” attempting to “control information.”
This isn’t the first time Gorka was the subject of criticism while appearing on C-SPAN. In August of last year, a caller phoned in to let Gorka know how he feels about him and the rest of Trump’s inner circle.
“Mr Gorka, 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 bitches that you are,” the caller said.
After the host cut the caller off, Gorka said his comments were “un-American.”
