Former White House official Seb Gorka, predictably, spent some of his radio show airtime Tuesday complaining about the wedding of two cartoon characters on the PBS show “Arthur.”
Arthur’s teacher, Mr. Ratburn, married a man (or, more accurately, an anthropomorphized animal of some kind) on the most recent episode.
“Did you have any questions about there being a culture war, ladies and gentlemen?” Gorka asked. “Did you have any doubt in your mind? This is a war for our culture.”
Gorka said that his kids used to watch “Arthur,” but based on his description of the show, TPM has some doubts: It’s “about a rodent-like creature that lived and had fun in his cartoon world,” he said.
Fact check: Arthur is an aardvark.
