Rep. Pete King: Bannon 'Does Not Belong on the National Stage'

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., on Wednesday recommended that Breitbart News CEO Steve Bannon step away from national politics following Roy Moore's loss.

King issued a tweet Wednesday morning to call for the GOP to "dump" Bannon after Moore, the candidate he backed heavily for Senate in Alabama, lost to a Democrat.

That same day, King told CNN's "New Day" host Chris Cuomo that Bannon "looks like some drunk that wandered on to the national stage."

"This guy does not belong on the national stage," King said. "He looks like some drunk that wandered on to the national stage. I consider myself a conservative Republican. I consider myself an Irish Catholic, and he parades himself out there with his weird alt-right views. And to me it's demeaning the whole government and political process."

King added, "This summer, I called on the president to fire him from the White House. And I think, last night, in Alabama — it wasn't just a political statement, it was a revulsion by people at his style, at his type of divisive views."

He concluded: "Last night's election was a revulsion by the American people."

Cuomo then asked, "Did you just call Steve Bannon a disheveled drunk?"

King clarified that Bannon merely resembles a disheveled drunk in appearance.
