Bannon took the gloves off after Mitt Romney attacked Judge Roy Moore, saying he won’t support him for reasons of “honor and integrity.” He pays for it, Bannon gets personal
Steve Bannon responded to attacks by Mitt Romney on Judge Roy Moore, highlighting his choosing to take the hypocritical high horse in his criticism, something that Romney did in attacking President Trump as well during and after the campaign.
Bannon told supporters at a Tuesday rally, “Let’s talk about another beauty, Willard “Mitt” Romney.” He lets the audience know that Romney started the back and forth by a comment on Monday that “Judge Moore lacked honor and integrity and that’s why he couldn’t vote for him.”
Romney’s also not a resident of Alabama, another reason he couldn’t vote for him, but he could support him from Utah or just keep his overactive trap shut. Instead he’s got to attempt to put himself above the rest of us as some sort of swamp scummy moral compass.
Bannon continues, “Judge Moore is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. Judge Moore served his country in one of the toughest wars we’ve ever had, Vietnam. And he went over there for his country, his state and his family. Mitt, that’s honor and integrity.” [VIDEOBELOW]
Bannon then points out, “And by the way, Mitt, while we’re on the subject of Vietnam and honor and integrity, you avoided service, brother, right? He says, “You hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in rice patties in Vietnam. Do not talk to me about honor and integrity.”
Saying, “And now I’m going to get personal,” Bannon goes on to note, “You ran for commander in chief, you had five sons. Not one day of service in Afghanistan and Iraq. We have 7,000 dead and 52,000 casualties and where were the Romneys during those wars?”
He adds, “You want to talk about honor and integrity brother, bring it. Bring it down here to Alabama. You have the guts to get on the stage of a man that served in Vietnam and you expect us to believe honor and integrity. Judge Roy Moore has more honor and integrity in that pinky finger than your entire family has in its whole DNA.”
He adds one dig, that Trump was able to win the presidency where he failed, just for good measure.
