WATCH: Ex-White House adviser Sebastian Gorka shoves reporter
Former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka’s testy relationship with the media got physical on Thursday at an annual gathering of conservatives.
The controversial ex-aide got into a heated exchange on Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference with a reporter from the liberal website Mediaite.
Video of the encounter between Gorka and reporter Caleb Ecarma was posted on Twitter.
Gorka can be seen mockingly raising his hand as if he’s about to strike Ecarma before shoving his shoulder and walking away.
The two then stand face-to-face, inches apart, as Gorka points his finger in Ecarma’s chest.
“Seb Gorka just got in my face, told me to ‘f--- off’ and shoved me — guess he's still not my biggest fan,” Ecarma tweeted.

The two have a bit of a history, which Ecarma detailed in a November story he wrote for Mediaite.
The opinion piece, titled “Seb Gorka Just Challenged Me to a Fight Over Email and I Accepted,” focused on Escarma’s displeasure that Gorka “illegally parked his sh---y four cylinder Mustang earlier that day.”
The pair then traded barbs via email and a fight was proposed but never came to pass.
Gorka, who has reported links to Nazi groups, became a lightning rod of controversy while working for the Trump administration.
He left the White House in late August, not long after his ally Steve Bannon was nudged out as chief strategist.
He first went back to his old job at Breitbart News, where Bannon also resumed his top perch, and later signed on as a Fox News contributor.
While in the White House, Gorka was unable to get a full security clearance due to being picked up in 2016 for carrying a gun at Ronald Reagan Airport in Virginia.
Last month, it was revealed that the Hungarian national had an active arrest warrant in his home country while he was serving in the Trump administration.
The warrant over “firearm or ammunition abuse” was issued Sept. 17, 2016, according to a Hungarian government database, and appears to still be active.
