Sebastian Gorka, the former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump who was forced out of the White House in August, returned to the spotlight on Tuesday — and got some immediate pushback online. was once a staple on television defending the president on every show that would have him.
Gorka decided to weigh in on the downfall of Harvey Weinstein, suggesting that the disgraced Hollywood mogul might have stayed out of trouble if he had followed the example of Vice President Mike Pence, who famously refuses to dine alone with any woman who is not his wife.
“THINK,” Gorka posited on Twitter. “If Weinstein had obeyed @VP Pence’s rules for meeting with the opposite sex, none of those poor women would ever have been abused.”

The moment recalled the Hungarian-born national security expert’s shoot-from-the-hip style and prompted a round of hearty guffaws from some of the blue check peanut gallery on Twitter.

This attitude is extremely dangerous. Suggesting that men can’t help but rape takes away any accountability for their actions. pic.twitter.com/FNmZZVXEIc
