A reporter from Mediaite with a past squabble with Sebastian Gorka apparently got him really annoyed because he appears to get in his face and tell him to “f**k off!” in a threatening way.

Here’s the altercation:
Seb Gorka just got in my face, told me to "fuck off" and shoved me — guess he's still not my biggest fan https://t.co/VLm0fdceLN— Caleb Ecarma (@calebecarma) February 22, 2018

And as it turns out, he’s had a history with this reporter, and it might be that this is what set him off:

There are obvious reasons for disliking Gorka, but putting them aside, I was actually outraged by the fact he illegally parked his shitty four cylinder Mustang earlier that day. Look, if you sell your soul to the Trump administration, I’d imagine the least you can do is shell out the extra few grand for the V8 model, instead of that laughable, 2.3L EcoBoost thing Gorka drives — which he parked directly on an Arlington, Virginia sidewalk.
“Seb Gorka illegally parked his shitty four cylinder Mustang on the sidewalk. Can’t even afford a 5.0 V8 GT. Sad!… Seriously tho what the hell is the point of buying a Mustang if it’s not a V8. Answer me coward @SebGorka,” I tweeted.
And those two tweets are what caused — or triggered, if you will — Gorka to challenge me to a fight via email. Or at least so it seems.
It was around 11 p.m. and I had just lost an absurd amount of money betting on the Milwaukee Bucks, and that’s when my phone pinged. It was Gorka. “So where do you want to meet,” he asked — as any normal, gray-haired 47-year-old ex-White House adviser would after having his masculinity challenged by a 20-something college bro online.
It’s really worth reading because it’s so hilarious – apparently the young guy completely agreed to meet Gorka to fight or duel THREE TIMES and Gorka backed off. Pretty funny.
