“You hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while men were dying in Vietnam."

Steve Bannon used his time campaigning for Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to attack Mitt Romney, along with his children, for their Mormon faith and lack of military service.

Inspired by Romney's Monday tweet saying Moore's election would be a "stain" on the Republican party and the country, Bannon went hard after the former presidential candidate's character:

"You hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while men were dying in Vietnam. Do not talk about honor and integrity," Bannon said.

Bannon continued, assailing Romney's sons, which elicited cheers from the several hundred supporters in attendance.

"You ran for commander in chief and had five sons — not one day of service in Afghanistan or Iraq. We have 7,000 dead and 52,000 casualties, and where were the Romneys during those wars?" Bannon asked. "Judge Roy Moore has more honor and integrity in his pinky finger than your entire family."
