News aggregator and journalist Matt Drudge tweeted sharp criticism of Steve Bannon and Roy Moore on Wednesday.

“A lesson on leaving politics to the professionals,” Drudge wrote with a photo of the lead on his website “The Drudge Report.”

Steve Bannon is reportedly considering pulling support from Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore after multiple women have accused him of sexual misconduct. The latest woman accused him of sexual assault when she was 16 produced a yearbook Moore signed. Moore called her “beautiful” and signed the message,”Love, Roy Moore.”

Bannon has repeatedly called the allegations “fake news” and has accused establishment Republicans of using them to push Moore out of the Senate race.

Drudge’s tweet points to those tensions between establishment Republican types like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell–who denounced Moore and asked him to step aside–and the alt-right and far-right wing of the party led by Bannon.
