Supporters of Donald Trump have reportedly been ejected from the board of the Metropolitan Republican Club at 122 East 83rd Street, according to the New York Post.
Club President Debbie Coughlin, former club President Peter Hein, Bob Morgan III and Ian Reilly supposedly conspired against the Trump fans on the board. “They hate Donald Trump, and they were really pissed when he won,” former executive board member Sandra Chase told the Post.
The small group who were removed from the committee reportedly likened the move to a Soviet political purge. Although the club disputes the reason for their dismissal.
“The Met Club replaced its board members according to its bylaws. It was simply the replacing of the ‘old guard’ by younger blood, something that happens in any organization,” said club Chairwoman Adele Malpass to the Post. “This had absolutely nothing to do with Donald Trump.”
