Self-proclaimed alpha male Sebastian Gorka is one of the most patently absurd characters to emerge from the Trump era. The outspoken cryptofascist was ousted from his role as deputy assistant to Trump in August and has been desperately clawing to remain at least on the fringes of the spotlight ever since.
Now, his hunger for attention might backfire. Buzzfeed reports that there is a warrant out for Gorka’s arrest in Hungary, where he formerly lived and worked at the Ministry of Defence. He has also been accused of having ties to a far-right, anti-semitic political party in the Eastern European nation.
Trump’s minion is wanted for “firearm or ammunition abuse.” The warrant was issued in September of 2016, before the election. In other words, the Trump White House actively employed a wanted and alleged criminal for several months.
“Don’t waste your time. I don’t talk to BuzzFeed, thank you,” Gorka said when Buzzfeed called him for comment.
The charges themselves make sense given Gorka’s heavily demonstrated fetishization of guns. The far-right kook is fond of posing for silly photographs in which he’s clutching guns and scowling in a way that he perhaps thinks is tough or cool or masculine. In reality, he looks like a basement-dwelling weirdo cosplaying as a soldier.
The pretend action hero also has a car dedicated to Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.
The man is clearly unhinged, and the news that he is wanted for arrest just shows the kind of people President Trump has chosen to invite into his inner circle.
