Rep. Peter King: Bannon Looks Like ‘Disheveled Drunk’

Rep. Peter King made the cable news rounds Wednesday morning, dropping into CNN’s New Day to jab at former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon in the wake of a stunning Republican loss in Alabama by U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore. “When you lose, you blame. And Republicans are blaming former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon,” said co-host Chris Cuomo. King said of Bannon: “It’s not a political issue but a moral issue... this guy does not belong on the national stage. He looks like a drunk that wandered on to the national stage.” The New York Republican added, “It’s not the type of person we need in American politics.” King made jabs at Bannon on MSNBC later in the morning.
