Former McConnell aide 'relieved' Moore lost, calls Bannon 'the emperor who had no clothes'

He went on to accuse Bannon of "leading a movement that doesn't exist."

“There's basically nobody who wants to touch him,” he said. “Not absolutely after he's spent his first foray here supporting an alleged child molester in Alabama and losing an R...”

Criticism was anticipated on Breitbart's SiriusXM radio show Wednesday, which featured Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow and Bannon himself.

"People, regardless of if it actually helps their own agenda, they're going to spend most of the day gloating because they're so happy that it's a perceived loss for you, Steve," Marlow said. "But I just wonder if that's a sophisticated reaction, if it's an accurate reaction, or if it's just sort of emotional."

"One thing you've got to give a hat tip to -- the DNC came in here, slipped in here underneath the radar, and did an amazing job of organizing ... ground game," Bannon said. "Hey, you gotta give the devil its due."

Holmes, on the other hand, distanced Moore's campaign from the GOP, calling him a “uniquely bad” candidate. “This was not by any stretch of the imagination a referendum on the Republican agenda in Congress," he said.

Holmes went further to dissociate Bannon from the interests of the Republican party and the Trump administration.

“This is a guy who is basically leading a movement that doesn't exist,” Holmes said. “He's attempting to convince people that he is trying to support the Trump agenda -- but how he's doing that is opposing a candidate with a 100 percent voting record and throwing away the seat altogether.”
