Republican Congressman Calls for GOP to Dump 'Disheveled Drunk' Steve Bannon

Andy Surabian, an aide to Bannon, said Trump's base will be angry at McConnell and punish him by beating his favored candidates in Senate primaries before next November's midterm general election.

Republican Rep. Peter King called Steve Bannon a "disheveled drunk" who is "not the type of person" the Republicans need in politics during a Wednesday interview.

Republican U.S. Rep. Peter King of NY is calling for his party to get rid of Steve Bannon, after the Breitbart publisher and former Trump campaign CEO backed yet another losing candidate, this time Alabama's Roy Moore.

King sent out the tweet the morning after Democrat Doug Jones defeated former judge Roy Moore. The allegations by the women include sexual assault and abuse.

The tweet said Bannon's "act is exhausted, inane and morally vacuous". John McCain (R-AZ), had a simple message for the former White House chief strategist.

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

"He sort of parades himself out there with his weird, alt-right views he has, and to me it's demeaning to the whole governmental and political process", King said.

Josh Holmes, McConnell's former chief of staff, said Tuesday night that Bannon deserves enshrinement "in the Democratic consultant Hall of Fame" for helping Moore defeat an incumbent GOP senator in the primary who nearly certainly would have kept the seat in Republican hands had he won the nomination.

Rich Lowry, the editor of the conservative National Review, said the Republican defeat in Alabama should be a lesson to other states where Bannon "wants to run a fringy candidate". The president also endorsed Moore, even after allegations that he sexually abused a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s.
