A number of mainstream media hacks have shared a three-month-old article suggesting President Donald Trump’s deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka is on his way out of the White House.
The article in question is a piece from The Los Angeles Times titled, “Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka expected to leave White House, official says.”
At the top of the article – presumably in response to the confusion – a disclaimer now reads, “this article was published May 1. Sebastian Gorka currently serves as a deputy assistant to President Trump.”
It’s a shame folks like MSNBC’s “intel analyst” Naveed Jamali, CNN’s “Republican” Ana Navarro, Human Rights Watch’s “senior researcher” Heather Barr and the Citizens for Ethics didn’t catch that note.
If true, and Gorka's leaving, Kelly's doing a good job clearing a bunch of dangerous crazies from the WH…except 1. https://t.co/SoSTBQhlUH

Let's not forget that his wife, Katharine, still holds a spot in the WH https://t.co/GfaAfZV53F

Seb Gorka is reportedly leaving the Trump administration, leaving unanswered questions we're fighting to answer 1/3 https://t.co/N08XdvjOJA

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough also initially tweeted the story but has since deleted the message and posted a new tweet.
Deleted the LA Times story I tweeted by mistake earlier.

This article is dated May 01. It's WAY overdue.
Not that he won't be leaving soon now that his sponsor Bannon is gone, but this ain't it.
