Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon on Tuesday ripped Mitt Romney for criticizing Alabama Senate candidate R Moore, going after the former GOP presidential candidate's lack of military service. “You hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in rice paddies in Viet...,” Bannon said at a rally for Moore. Romney, who is Mormon, has been critical of Moore, calling him unfit for office. On Monday, Romney said if Moore were to serve in the Senate, it would be “a stain on the GOP and on the nation.” “He’s still bitter about Donald Trump. Embrace it Mitt, he is president of the United States, and commander of  forces, something you so miserably failed at,” Bannon said Tuesday.

“Did he sign a check today, $100 to Jones? If you’re going to write a check, write a check,” Bannon said during his speech at a rally for Republican candidate Roy Moore.

“Don’t give the man $100. Are you kidding me? Hey Flake, this is why your approval rating in your home state is like 11 percent.”

Flake, who previously announced he would not seek reelection in 2018, said Monday that a win for Moore is "no win victory for the GOP and the nation."
