Bannon threatens GOP establishment, says conservative voters are 'coming for you'

Steve Bannon is backing President Trump in his battle with Tennessee Senator Bob Corker.

The former Trump adviser spoke at the Values Voter Summit Saturday. He returned to the political spotlight last month, supporting Roy Moore who trumped Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican senate race. 
It appears Bannon has bigger fish to fry, calling for GOP senators to condemn Corker’s attacks on Trump. For those that don’t condemn Corker's attacks, he threatened that the conservative voters are “coming."

"Nobody can run and hide on this one, these folks are coming for you," he said at the Summit.

Bannon was responding to Corker's claims in the New York Times that Trump's threats could lead to “World War III,” and his Tweet claiming the White House has become an "adult day care center." Bannon called for Corker's resignation just last week. 

He maintained, "Bob Corker has trashed the commander in chief of our Armed Forces while we have young men and women in harm's way, right? He said he's leading them on a path to World War III, that he is not stable, that people have to keep him moderated." Bannon also called for his resignation.
