On Saturday, the Associated Press reported that John Burton, the outgoing California state Democrat Party chair, extended two middle fingers as he led state convention delegates in a chant of “f–k Donald Trump.”
According to the AP:
The convention comes less than a week after the U.S. Justice Department appointed a special prosecutor to investigate whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during last year’s election — a charge Trump has vehemently denied and called a witch hunt.
In a sign of the vigor of the party’s distaste for the president, outgoing party Chair John Burton, a longtime Democratic lawmaker and powerbroker known for his blunt and profane manner, extended two middle fingers in the air as the crowd cheered and joined him.
“F— Donald Trump,” he said.
Naturally, the unhinged Democrats at the convention followed his lead while giving him a standing ovation:

And to illustrate how classless the party is, here’s video of Burton telling protesters to “shut the f–k up…”

The Los Angeles Times explained:
The California Democratic Party convention started with a bang Friday night, with protesters disrupting speeches at the official kickoff and state party Chairman John Burton unleashing a series of F-bombs aimed at the demonstrators.
The chanting began when Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and Burton stepped up to the podium in a cavernous hall at the state capital’s convention center, with protesters shouting demands that the party reject corporate donations and work to implement a single-payer healthcare system.
Burton, known for his salty language, lashed out quickly. He told protesters that the Democratic Party had been fighting for single-payer healthcare “since before you were born.”
“Hey, shut the … up or go outside,” Burton said.
And more f-bombs from Burton:

Keep in mind that Democrats have been giving Americans the middle finger for years, so this really shouldn’t surprise anyone. This is, after all, the modern Democrat Party, which has become completely insane with Trump’s election. And keep in mind this is the same state where Democrat Governor Jerry Brown thinks taxpayers are “freeloaders.”
In February 2011, I first said that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. California Democrats just proved that assertion correct.
- Virginia liberal Dem. Mike Dickinson: Let’s pray God kills Jerry Falwell, Jr., with a heart attack
- Dem. Rep. Val Demings to Facebook critic: ‘My First Amendment right is different from yours’
- #ICYMI – Gov. Moonbeam Brown calls California taxpayers ‘freeloaders’
- Watch Nancy Pelosi suffer brain freeze: ‘What are we talking about?’
- Director Judd Apatow on violent Berkeley riots: ‘This is just the beginning’
