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.
On CNN, King responded to Doug Jones’ win in the Alabama Senate race by trashing Bannon, who campaigned heavily for Republican Roy Moore.
“You know, I raised this not so much as a political issue but as a moral issue,” King explained. “This guy does not belong on the national stage–he looks like some disheveled drunk that wandered onto the political stage.”
“He does not represent anything I stand for,” he continued.
King argued that the Alabama election is proof that people are rejecting Bannon and his candidates.
“He sort of parades himself out there with those weird alt-right views he has,” he said. “I think last night Alabama…was a revulsion at people at his style, at his type of divisive views.”
