(THE HILL) -- Former White House aide Sebastian Gorka took aim at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) and progressive members of the Democratic Party in a new interview, asserting that former President John F. Kennedy would not be welcome in the modern-day incarnation of his party.
In an interview airing Sunday on AM 970 New York, Gorka tells "The Answer" host John Catsimatidis that a "hardcore, pro-nationalist" such as Kennedy would be unwelcome in the party.
"Today, a hard-core, pro-nationalist politician like John F Kennedy would not be allowed in the Democrat party. That’s how bad it is," Gorka says, adding: “The lunatics are taking over the asylum...Bill Clinton and his ilk would at least rein in the loonies."
