Bannon To Trump: Keep 'Sh*t List' Of Republicans Who Opposed Trumpcare

“From day 1 in this fight, conservatives have been far more focused on keeping their promises,” a conservative congressional aide said to the Daily Beast.

President Trump

If the White House wasn't quite petty enough for you yet, never fear. President Donald Trump's chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon is apparently suggesting Trump keep a "sh** list" of those GOP politicians who so oppose Trumpcare, the Daily Beast reports.

You know — like keeping a high school Burn Book (thanks, "Mean Girls," for that one).

"[Bannon] has told the president to keep a sh** list on this," an official exclusively told The Daily Beast. "He wants a running tally of [the Republicans] who want to sink this...Not sure if I'd call it an 'enemies list,' per se, but I wouldn’t want to be on it."

Apparently, Bannon told Trump to "burn the boats," which is an expression that alludes to military commanders burning their own boats in adversarial territories.

Another anonymous source from the White House reportedly called the inventory a "hit list" for GOP members who are not loyal to Trump. 

What Trump will do with said "hit list" is another story, but as the Daily Beast points out, it's more of a "we'll keep this in mind" threat among the political circle.

Hilariously, Bannon himself doesn't even care for the bill, which speaks on his vengeful nature.

"[Bannon] thinks it's a piece of sh**...and he told me as such," an anonymous source said to the Daily Beast. "But, I mean, he's not going against [the president]."

Considering the fact that not enough Republican voters in the House supported the Affordable Health Care Act in place of the Affordable Care Act, forcing Trump to ask Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to pull the bill, it sounds like this is going to be one gargantuan hit list. 

Ahh, politics.
