Donald Trump is keeping a list of Republicans who voted against him in the presidential election, people his team calls “enemies.”
“It’s so great our enemies are making themselves clear so that when we get in to the White House, we know where we stand,” former reality TV show “talent” and Trump surrogate Omarosa Manigault said to the Independent Journal Review.
These “enemies” are not Democrats. At least not yet. No, the real enemies are Republicans who didn’t side with Trump.
Speaking at Trump’s election night party in New York Tuesday evening, Omarosa targeted Republican establishment Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who voted for the Independent candidate Evan McMullin. She said, “If (Graham) felt his interests was with that candidate, God bless him. I would never judge anybody for exercising their right to and the freedom to choose who they want.”
They won’t judge, y’all. But they are keeping a list.
“But let me just tell you, Mr. Trump has a long memory and we’re keeping a list.”
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) has to be nervous today, given his shaky relationship with Donald Trump.
Donald Trump hasn’t even taken office yet, and he’s making disgraced Republican president Richard Nixon look like a boy scout. The scariest part of all of this is that his people don’t even know enough to not say these things out loud, to the press no less.
America isn’t supposed to work like this. Not at all. But this is the America conservatives voted for, and this is the America they are going to get.
