Gorka on ‘resignation’: ‘We can be far more effective for the president on the outside’
Sebastian Gorka gave his first interview on Saturday since “resigning” as Trump’s deputy assistant, and despite the fact that neither he nor his mentor/Breitbart pal Steve Bannon are part of the administration anymore, the good doctor is confident they are now somehow even closer to the levers of power.

“I realized after the President’s speech this week on Afghanistan that he’s not being well-served,” Gorka told Breitbart’s (I wonder how they landed that interview!?) Matt Boyle on SiriusXM. “That speech was written by people for the President in direct contravention of everything that we voted for November the 8th.”
A brilliant strategy. When you feel your boss isn’t being well-served, but you personally have all the answers, the best way to remedy that situation is to resign. It makes perfect sense. Truly this man understands his Sun Tzu.
Another complaint our favorite chef had about the speech was that Trump never once said “radical Islamic terrorism,” again implying that a significant portion of this administration was under the impression that if you say those words enough times, ISIS will simply evaporate.
“I decided, just as with Steve [Bannon], we can be far more effective for the president on the outside, and it’s a very exciting day for me and my family to start again supporting the MAGA message as private citizens,” Gorka continued.
Sure, who wants to waste time exercising influence as part of the president’s administration? Everybody knows where the real power in America lies. Blogs.
Keep in mind multiple sources, including White House officials, have said that Gorka didn’t resign but was in fact pushed out.
