Former White House Chief Strategist and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steve Bannon ripped into former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and his family after Romney took cheap shots at Alabama candidate for US Senate Roy Moore, questioning his “honor and integrity” on Tuesday.
“What did [Mitt Romney] say yesterday? … That judge Moore lacked honor and integrity and that’s why he couldn’t vote for him?” Bannon asked an audience of Moore supporters in Fairhope, Alabama.
Bannon referenced Romney’s unwelcome voice as he tweeted out, “Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation. Leigh Corfman and other victims are courageous heroes. No vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity.”

Leigh Corfman is a scam artists whose made several false accusations and is known in her community for it. She has no honor and no integrity and by claiming she is a “courageous hero,” neither does Romney. And losing honor and integrity by voting for Roy Moore, Mitt? Surely you jest!
The GOP has lost their integrity a long time ago. They lost their honor because they don’t follow the Constitution anymore than the Democrats do.
As for Romney, Bannon had strong words for his tweet.
“Judge Moore is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point,” he said. “Judge Moore served his country in one of the toughest wars we ever had, in Vietnam.”
“That’s honor and integrity, Mitt,” Bannon said. “And while we’re on the subject of Vietnam, and honor, and integrity, you avoided service, brother.”
However, Bannon didn’t stop at Romney, he launched into an attack on his own lack of service and the lack of service by his sons.
Mitt, Mitt, here’s how it is brother. The college deferments … we can debate that … but 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!
And now I’m gonna get personal. 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. Where were the Romneys during those wars?
You want to talk about honor and integrity brother? Bring it. Bring it here to Alabama! You have the guts to get on the stage with a man who served in Vietnam and you expect us to believe “honor and integrity?” Judge Roy Moore has more honor and integrity in the pinky finger than your entire family has in its whole DNA!
He then pointed out that Romney is just bitter because he was a two-time loser for the White House, unlike Donald Trump.
“[Romney’s] still bitter about Donald Trump,” Bannon told the crowd in the barn. “Embrace it, Mitt. He is President of the United States and commander-in-chief of the armed forces, something you so miserably failed at.”
Judge Roy Moore also responded to Romney’s tweet.
“Either @MittRomney has lost his courage or he doesn’t care about truth anymore. Sad day! America’s reawakening was led by @realDonaldTrump, not you Mitt. #DefeatTheElite #DrainTheSwamp,” Moore tweeted.
Either @MittRomney has lost his courage or he doesn’t care about truth anymore. Sad day!

Romney never showed any courage.
Additionally, when Romney ran for president, he was supported by Donald Trump, but when the favor was asked to be returned, Romney wouldn’t budge. While Trump is not a “conservative,” he far more conservative in a lot of ways that Mitt Romney ever was as governor.
Shame on Mitt Romney! The people spoke back in 2012. They pretty much told Romney they didn’t care to hear from him ever again. I wish he would listen.
