Bannon at Moore rally: 'Special place in hell for Republicans who should know better'

Stephen Bannon on Monday called out GOP leaders who have failed to support Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, telling a crowd at a rally ahead of the special election that there is a "special place in hell for Republicans who should know better."

"Mitch McConnell and Sen. Shelby, and Condi Rice and all that, Little Bobby Corker, all the establishment out there doesn't have Trump's back at all," Bannon said, suggesting they are just using Trump to eke out "a tax cut."

"There's a special place in hell for Republicans who should know better," he added, to the sound of a applause.

Bannon is campaigning for Moore in a heated race that has captured the national spotlight after a handful of women came forward last month and accused the candidate of making unwanted sexual advances when they were underaged teenagers and he was in his 30's. 

Breitbart's executive chairman's remarks appeared to make a dig at Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, who said there is a “special place in hell for people who pray on children” after the allegations surfaced.

One woman claims she was 14 years old at the time Moore touched her sexually. 

Moore has denied the allegations of wrongdoing and pushed forward with his campaign.
