I've heard a couple of interviews with that guy, and I almost could not believe that they let him talk to reporters. I say almost, because he has an English accent, and sounds very smarmy and incredibly condescending. Which I realized might make Trump think he's a great spokesperson.

I looked him up afterwards, and there are allegations that he has lied about a number of things that are professionally relevant.

I believe Gorka is also the guy who showed up at the inauguration wearing a suit with a decoration reminiscent of a fascist group from his father's homeland.

It was not just reminiscent. He is apparently, (or represents himself as) a hereditary member of the Order of Vitez, which has a past that intertwines with Nazism.

AIUI, he would have had to list that membership and renounce it before becoming an American citizen. So there are multiple things wrong with him wearing the uniform and medals.
