The host, Pedro Echevarria, quickly dropped the call and apologized to Gorka, who promptly responded to the attacks by labeling the caller "un-American."

"Why is that man on the Democratic line?" Gorka asked. “Why is there such hatred out there? It’s just un-American."

"This level of hatred [is] not good for the health of the republic," Gorka said. 

Gorka, who worked as a special assistant to the president, left his position in the White House about a year ago. Since then, he's been a frequent guest on networks such as Fox News and has repeatedly voiced support for Trump's agenda. 

Just days ago, C-SPAN was forced into a 7-second delay after caller used a racial slur against former President Obama and called for his death.

C-SPAN has dealt with multiple other incidents involving callers making controversial statements. Earlier this month, the network was forced to alert the FBI after one caller appeared to threaten CNN host Brian Stelter and CNN anchor Don Lemon. 

“They don’t even know these Americans out here and they are calling us racists because we voted for Trump?” the caller said. “Come on. Give me a break. They started the war. I see them. I’m going to shoot them.”
