Sebastian Gorka ― former Trump aide turned conservative commentator ― called 17-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg “thunder thighs” in a radio broadcast on Tuesday.
In a clip posted online by the liberal group Media Matters, Gorka and guest Andrew Klavan ― an author and political commentator ― began talking about teenager Nick Sandmann, the student who just reached a settlement with CNN after suing the network.
“I heard about this too, and boy, oh boy, does he ever deserve it,” Klavan said about the Covington Catholic High School student who was briefly in the news last year when he and some classmates were involved in a confrontation with an elderly Native American man during a trip to D.C. “If ever a kid ― you know, these are people who will defend Greta Thuns ― whatever her name. What is her name? Greta Thunberg?”
“Thunder thighs,” Gorka answered. “Greta Thunberg.”
Klavan went on to defend Sandmann, and said the media has standards different for conservative and liberal teens.
