A gathering of California’s Democratic Party in Sacramento on Saturday ostensibly intended to set an agenda and offer a sendoff to long-time member John Burton turned into a vulgar attack on President Trump.
Following remarks delivered by newly-minted U.S. Senator Kamala Harris and Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, both of whom are considered rising stars in the party, outgoing state chairman, John Burton, took the podium to offer hard-edged comments about President Trump.
After words of praise were delivered for his eight years party leadership, Burton took the podium and exhaled: “Holy s*it!”
“Now, all together: F^ck Donald Trump!” he continued.
Mr. Burton extended both middle fingers as he exhorted the crowd to join in his chant.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was on hand to witness the spectacle; an image of her behind Burton captured the San Francisco Democrat laughing as Burton led the crowd in the vulgar war cry.
Stay classy out there in coked-up canyon.
