Steve Bannon Goes Off on Mitt Romney: ‘You Hid Behind Your Religion’

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on Tuesday blasted Mitt Romney after the former Republican presidential nominee denounced Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore. “You hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in Vietnam,” Bannon said at a Moore rally in Alabama, in response to Romney’s tweet that “no vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity.” Bannon noted that Moore graduated from West Point and served in Vietnam. President Donald Trump—who later called not getting an STD in New York City in the 1980s his “personal Vietnam”—received a deferment from service in Vietnam because of “bone spurs.”
