Colorado Republicans will celebrate Trump’s inauguration at two “balls,” one a $110 formal “black-tie-optional” affair with Champagne and the other a $35 “deplorables” event with “hot appetizers.”
The fancier event, sponsored by, among others, Colorado State Treasurer Walker Stapleton, takes place Saturday at 6. p.m. at the Denver Marriott Tech Center.
The event is also “hosted by your friends” Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman and Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams.
Coffman and Stapleton are both mentioned frequently as potential 2018 GOP gubernatorial candidates.
The second celebration, a more down-scale event called the “Deplorables Inaugural Ball” and sponsored by KNUS 710-AM, takes place tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the Proof Night Club on East Hampden Ave.
“Calling all deplorables!!!!!” reads the Eventbrite description of the event, noting that participants must be 21 years old, which means I can’t send my intern.
