Laxalt’s Basque Fry Features Fellow Trump Sycophants

Tomorrow, failed gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt is hosting his fifth annual fundraiser featuring a new slate of political bottom feeders–from fired Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowksi to controversy-laden former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. Despite losing his bid for Governor and failing to garner the support of his own family–let alone Nevadans–Laxalt remains committed to a failed strategy of embracing Donald Trump. 

With Loser Laxalt surrounded by this roster of Trump lackeys, there’s no doubt this fundraiser supporting Laxalt’s PAC will continue Republicans down a path of mourning in Nevada. Just take a look at the guest list:

“Acting” White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney


Failed Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski 


Ethics-Adjacent Former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke 

Leading the agency designed to protect our natural resources, Zinke racked up a number of controversies. Some include:

  • Levying several attacks against conservation efforts
  • Spending tax-payer funds on excessive travel 
  • Engaging in real estate dealings that likely broke federal law


Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Molly Forgey released the following statement:

“Loser Laxalt’s Gardnerville fundraiser is set to be a who’s who of rejects ousted from the fringes of American politics–which only seems fitting when the man of the hour is coming off a failed bid for Governor in which he couldn’t even garner the support of his own family. Laxalt’s embrace of Donald Trump failed him and the entire ticket in 2018 and leaning on the president’s cronies will only cement the Nevada GOP’s downhill trajectory.”
