Mike Pence's chief of staff wants to 'purge' Republicans who won't unite behind Trump

Mike Pence's chief of staff Nick Ayers on Tuesday pushed wealthy donors to unite against Republicans in Congress who oppose Donald Trump's agenda, advising them to "purge" the small contingent of GOP leaders impeding the implementation of the president's campaign promises.

According to an audio recording of the event obtained by Politico, Ayers departed from Mike Pence's generally conciliatory public tone at a closed-door Republican National Committee event at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, and urged a more aggressive funding strategy.

“Just imagine the possibilities of what can happen if our entire party unifies behind him?" Ayers told donors. "If — and this sounds crass — we can purge the handful of people who continue to work to defeat him."

And then there is the #Rev18 SuperPAC:

#Rev18 is a super PAC that is using social media to overhaul the GOP. Our mission is to elect America First candidates in 2018 and beyond. Our vision is to take back the GOP and advance an America First agenda.

Sounds good to me. And even though I didn’t like Trump I voted for him because he was the GOP candidate. I like him now and I think he’s developing to the point where he may be one of our great presidents.

But my point is that if your party has managed to get somebody elected to the presidency, then you have to stand behind that person whether you like him or not if you want your party to have any effect.

Pence should have read the first 90 days, instead of the first 300 days.

This is good. Seems like Pence has come in line and playing the bad cop/good cop routine.

Now if Sessions would get off his high horse and understand he’s not a Senator anymore and start ordering the release of all this documentation on the investigations ..... Then it will be fun to watch the RINO circle the bowl.

When I had to prep for a colonoscopy they gave me stuff that “purged” very effectively. We need that kind of nuclear strength purge for the CINOs and RINOs.

a purge of never-trumper or even indifferent-trumper candidates is a truly great idea!
