Rep. Pete King: Bannon 'Does Not Belong on the National Stage'

Rep. Peter King Tells CNN's Chris Cuomo That Steve Bannon Looks Like A 'Disheveled Drunk'

In one particularly juicy exchange, King told host Chris Cuomo, "I would raise, not so much a political issue, nearly as a moral issue".

Bannon, President Donald Trump's former chief political strategist and right-wing firebrand, backed Roy Moore during his unsuccessful bid for a Senate seat in Alabama. He also claimed that Tuesday's election results were "a revulsion by people at [Bannon's] style, at his type of divisive views", adding that Bannon "encourages racial division". If we are to Make America Great Again for all Americans, Bannon must go!

"It was nearly a moral issue".

Asked by CNN host Chris Cuomo whether he was calling Bannon "a disheveled drunk", King clarified that he had said Bannon "looks like one".

Rep. King made similar remarks on MSNBC, saying Steve Bannon "looks like a disheveled drunk".

Rep. Peter King appeared on CNN's New Day to dissect yesterday's shocking Republican loss in the (deeply red state) Alabama special election and went far beyond the predictable blame-laying in which politicians typically engage after a loss. I consider myself an Irish Catholic, and he sort of parades himself out there, with his weird alt-right views that he has, and to me, it's demeaning the whole governmental and political process. this summer, I called on the president to fire him from the White House.

The Wall Street Journal's conservative editorial page has knives out for former top Trump political strategist Steve Bannon.

Politico.com quoted one senior administration official, whom it did not identify, as saying the Jones victory was, "a big black eye for the president".
