“Core group” of Trump campaign supporters celebrate Trump’s “Year of Greatness”

(You’ve gotta fight–for your right–to paaaaarty! – Promoted by Colorado Pols)

Many of Colorado’s top supporters of the 2016 Trump Campaign, including Colorado lawmakers Tim Neville (R-Littleton) and Kim Ransom (R-Lone Tree), gathered at 11:30 a.m. Saturday in Lone Tree to celebrate the a one year anniversary of Trump’s inauguration.

“It was just a really great gathering of a core group of people who supported the Trump campaign in Colorado,” said Dede Laugesen, who was coalitions director for the Trump campaign in Colorado. “We were happy to spend some time together again, celebrating a year of greatness in our eyes, at the hour of power.”

The “hour of power” refers to the 11:30 a.m. time of Saturday’s party, which was when Trump was sworn into office.

Partick Davis, Colorado’s Trump Campaign Director in 2016, trumpeted the party on Facebook, writing that he’d been “celebrating one year of #MAGA with my fellow deplorables in Denver.”

One of Davis’ fellow deplorables at Saturday’s event was Steve Barlock, who was co-chair of Trump’s Colorado Campaign and is currently a gubernatorial candidate. Other notables at the party included Robert Blaha, who worked on the Colorado Trump Campaign, Brita Horn, who’s running for state treasurer, former Colorado GOP Chair Steve House, Littleton State Sen. Neville, and Lone Tree Rep. Ransom, according to Laugesen, who said about 100 people attended the party.

“I personally am celebrating a year of a U.S. president putting Americans first, creating opportunities for business in our booming economy,” said Laugesen. “Jobs and the stock market are booming. Businesses overseas are bringing jobs home. As a mom of a bunch boys, I’m looking to a very bright future for them as a result of Trump.”

The event cost $35 at the door, which covered lunch, but it was not a fundraiser or “campaign jam fest,” according to the Facebook invitation.

“This is a PARTY,” the invitation stated. “We are going to CELEBRATE! There is SO, SO much to celebrate. It is Big. Big. #MAGA #T4CO.”

      I wasn't invited but I would have been proud!!

        Proud of what? As a middle class retiree, my federal taxes go up this year thanks to loss of exemptions done away with so Trump could give mucho money to his billionaire buddies.

          American industry will chum the waters sufficiently to quieten the rebellion for a while, but no one should be confused about what is really happening. This is a return to feudalism. The screws will begin to tighten once the Chicago Boys have all the pieces in place.

          Environmental, safety, financial, and every other kind of regulation (except guns) is being tossed or gutted by the Vandals who are making war on the American people, their health, and their environment. Like a horde of Cossacks, the industry driven congress is laying waste to our future. If they manage to win control of enough states and keep the federal govt. they now own, a constitutional convention will soon follow.
          In fact, perhaps it is time to raise a campaign on this slogan…” Don’t let Republicans change the constitution!”

        Why weren't you invited?   Because you're too embarrassing even for the Trumturds?

        • RepealAndReplace says:

          They apparently tracked down Moddy´s comment circa April 7, 2016, that "Trump will not be the nominee"and considered that too much disloyalty.

          Face it, Fluffy, you're living the "Scarlett Letter" after your posting #NeverTrump.

      • RepealAndReplace says:

        Steve House was there which was why you were not.

    Always with the “fake news” and trying to make Cheetolini look bad?  That Lonetree gathering was peanuts . . . 

    . . . show the huge crowd that celebrated in the Kremlin why don’t ya, Alva????

  3. Diogenesdemar says:

    I guess the other 60 must have been in the bathroom counting their money?? . . . 

  4. rathmone says:

    So if it wasn't a fundraiser, did Dede get to pocket any leftover cash?

    • notaskinnycook says:

      I was wondering about that, too, rathmone. A party with an entrance fee is called a fundraiser–but for what? The Yam's defense fund, maybe?

        For Patrick Davis' own enrichment, more than likely – judging from his success at bilking Republicans in the past. A short resume of Davis' political and financial dealings:

        Last position: Colorado's Trump Campaign Director. Accomplishment: Lost the state by 5 points. Steered campaign money to his consulting firm, Patrick Davis consulting, and to his phone contact firm for robocalls.

        Position before that: Head of Vote2ReduceDebt, a Texas PAC funded by an elderly donor who trusted Davis.
        Major Accomplishment: Steered hundreds of thousands of dollars to companies owned by himself and his friends. Note: Did not reduce debt.

        He's also worked for a South Dakota lawmaker who turned in forged petition signatures, several other shady and scandal-touched political enterprises, and, weirdly, as an EPA administrator – for 3 months.

        So we have to assume that the Colorado GOP knew what they were getting when they hired Davis, and that he was as dirty as they come – and they deserve each other. But if I had gone to that fundraiser in Lone Tree, I'd be checking my credit card statments afterwards.
