A man named Henry called into C-SPAN yesterday when Sebastian Gorka was the guest, and first requested that Gorka not interrupt him. Then he unloaded.

“First, I would like to say that the elections in 2018 is perhaps the most consequential in our history because we have to stop and impending dictatorship by this white supremacist, right-wing traitor. And Donald Trump, make no mistake, is a traitor, along with everyone in his orbit,” the caller said.

“We have to look at this relationship with the Russians. Donald Trump is owned by the Russian oligarchs because they funded him when U.S. banks wouldn’t. They have compromising information on him. So 2018 will be a very consequential election.”

So get this. Gorka sidesteps the Russian allegations and does a classic projection, saying he is “saddened by the people who live in an alternate universe who use words like dictatorship, white supremacist and traitor — that is inflammatory as well as dangerous language.”

Oh, my aching sides!

“As a person who has worked for the president, he does not have a racist bone in his body, The one thing that came through to me most clearly working for him is he does not care whether you voted for Hillary or Bernie, he does not care if you did not voted or stayed at home. He wants two things for you: he wants you to be safe, and for you and your family to prosper. That is who President Trump is.”

The man without a racist bone in his body who wanted black employees be removed from the casino floor when he visited? This guy?

Trump treated black employees at his casinos differently from whites, according to multiple sources. A former hotel executive said Trump criticized a black accountant: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks.”

Oh yeah, that guy!
