Dr. Sebastian Gorka appeared on CNN to speak with Jake Tapper recently and during his visit, he touched on a number of important topics, but above all was shown blatant and concerning disrespect from Tapper who suggested Gorka’s knowledge was inferior to . . . Ben Rhodes . . .
Very rarely is CNN so stupid that you might be poised to do a literal double take, but in this instance, by even attempting to compare Dr. Gorka and Rhodes, it appears CNN went a WAY too far.
It’s quite hilarious what happened next . . .
Dr. Gorka opened with a powerful statement:
“. . . policies that were born in the Beltway by people who’ve never worn a uniform, the people that were in the White House like Ben Rhodes . . . they helped create the firestorm that is the Middle East, that is ISIS today, so we are open to new ideas because the last sixteen years have failed American national interests and the American taxpayer.”
Tapper attempted to play Devil’s advocate:
“There were plenty of people who wore a uniform who advised President Obama and President Bush . . .”
Dr. Gorka interjects logically:
“Not people who were as influential as Ben Rhodes, who had a masters degree in fictional writing . . . THAT is disastrous.”
Tapper then insults Dr. Gorka:
“Well, I’m sure he would put his graduate degree against yours any day of the week, but Sebastian Gorka I appreciate your time.”
Dr. Gorka throws down the gauntlet:
“Any time, I’d be glad to debate him on your show.”

Dr. Gorka went on to tweet:
“I’d be delighted. What say you Mr. Rhodes? Mr. Tapper?”
I’d be delighted.
