Rep. Peter King (R-NY) went after former White House chief strategist and current Breitbart executive Steve Bannon on CNN on Wednesday morning in the wake of Republican Roy Moore’s senate loss Tuesday night.

“[Bannon] does not belong on the national stage. He looks like some disheveled drunk that wandered onto the political stage,” King told CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

“He sort of parades himself out there with his weird alt-right views, and to me it’s demeaning the whole government process,” he continued.

The New York Republican pointed out that he called for Bannon’s dismissal from the White House this summer, and showcased his own conservative credentials.

Cuomo asked King to clarify his description of Bannon as a “disheveled drunk.”

“No, I was very precise. I said he looks like one,” King responded.

The representative also hit Bannon on Twitter on Wednesday:
