Steve Bannon appears to have taken a jab at first daughter Ivanka Trump, using her own words to attack members of the Republican Party who won't support Roy Moore.

Bannon spoke at a barn rally in Alabama on Dec. 11 to make one final push for Moore before the election, the Daily Mail reported. He took shots at several Republican Party members using the same words Ivanka Trump used when asked about the allegations against Moore.

"Mitch McConnell and Senator Shelby, and Condi Rice and all that, Little Bobby Corker, all the establishment out there, all that establishment every day, that doesn't have [Donald] Trump's back at all," Bannon said. "There's a special place in hell for Republicans who should know better."

Bannon appeared to be paraphrasing Ivanka Trump's previous statement on the teen predator allegations facing the Alabama Senate hopeful.

"There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children," she said when asked about the allegations against Moore.

Bannon made the argument that President Donald Trump will get more things done with Moore occupying the Senate seat.

"It's an up or down vote tomorrow," Bannon said. "Between the Trump miracle and the nullification project."

"This should be an absolute blow-out except for what they did to Judge Moore," Bannon added of his fellow Republicans. "They couldn't stand being beaten in the first round."

Moore had defeated Sen. Luther Strange by 10 points in the September primary. Despite allegations of preying on teenage girls while in his 30s, Donald Trump -- who himself has been publicly accused of sexual misconduct by numerous women -- still endorsed Moore.

"The people of Alabama will do the right thing," the president tweeted on Dec. 12. "Doug Jones is Pro-Abortion, weak on Crime, Military and Illegal Immigration, Bad for Gun Owners and Veterans and against the WALL. Jones is a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet. Roy Moore will always vote with us. VOTE ROY MOORE!"

Meanwhile, former President Barack Obama has publicly endorsed Jones, CNN reported.

"This one's serious," he said in a recorded phone message, according to two Democratic officials familiar with the Alabama race. "You can't sit it out."

"Doug Jones is a fighter for equality, for progress," Barack Obama continued, without mentioning Moore's name. "Doug will be our champion for justice. So get out and vote, Alabama."

Moore has denied the allegations against him and has kept a relatively low profile since the reports surfaced.
