Political strategist Steve Bannon called former Vice President Mike Pence "a disgusting coward" for saying that Republicans should stop lashing out at the FBI over the raid at former President Donald Trump's Florida home.
Pence, appearing in New Hampshire on Wednesday morning, denounced calls by some of Trump's allies to defund the FBI, saying that such demands were "just as wrong" as a push by Democrat activists to defund the police.
Bannon harshly criticized Pence for his comments, and added that there are more examples of the widening gap between Trump's supporters and traditional GOP lawmakers, "controlled opposition that has gotten this nation in trouble."
"Pence, you are a disgusting coward. Just even the sight of you bugs me," Bannon said during his show "War Room" on the Real America's Voice network.
Bannon, a White House strategist during the Trump administration, called Pence a "mindless, gutless simp."
Bannon left the Trump White House in August 2017.
Trump pardoned Bannon in 2020 when Bannon was facing charges of money laundering and mail fraud conspiracy.
