If you watch my Facebook LIVE show, “The Truth” (M-F 11 a.m. EDT at Facebook.com/DMLdaily, and then at 6 p.m. at Facebook.com/FightingForTrump), you heard me say earlier this week that if Moore lost in Alabama, there would be a massive hit to the head of Steve Bannon, the former White House advisor and now Breitbart News editor-in-chief. (NOTE: On Dec. 13, “The Truth” will air at 10:30 a.m.).
Moore lost on Tuesday and, as anticipated, the hits have started.
Republican Rep. Peter King (N.Y.) is calling for the GOP to “dump” Bannon, saying the conservative looks like a “disheveled drunk.”
“This guy does not belong on the national stage. He looks like some disheveled drunk that wandered onto the political stage,” King said, during an interview on CNN.
“He sort of parades himself out there with his weird alt-right views that he has and, to me, it’s demeaning the whole governmental and political process,” he added in the interview given after King attacked Bannon on Twitter.

But the insults didn’t stop with King. Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Wednesday that Doug Jones’ Senate win in Alabama a “good day for America” because it was a blow to Steve Bannon.
“That was a good day for America yesterday in the sense that Bannon lost,” Scaramucci told Bloomberg. “I don’t think it was a great day for the Republican Party either way.”
Scaramucci’s history with Bannon goes back to his brief White House stint. Days before becoming White House communications director, Scaramucci slammed Bannon–who was the chief White House strategist at the time–and other Trump administration officials in a phone call with a New Yorker reporter.
