Last month, First Daughter and White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump sided with the women who levied accusations of sexual misconduct against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, saying there is a “special place in hell for people who prey on children.”
Steve Bannon, Trump’s former top strategist and Moore’s biggest backer, responded Monday, a day before Alabamans went to the polls. Without mentioning Trump by name, but in a reference clear enough for any listener to understand, Bannon stated that there was a “special place in hell for Republicans who should know better.”
Bannon, while echoing Ivanka’s phrase, also took issue in his speech with other Republicans who have criticized President Trump, including Sen. Bob Corker and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
