‘F**k Donald Trump’: Outgoing Chair of California Democratic Party Flips Off President

John Burton, the outgoing chairman of the Democratic Party in California, took one final shot at President Donald Trump on Saturday by shouting, ‘F**k Donald Trump!” Burton also raised the middle finger on both of his hands.

The official made the vulgar remarks and gesture at the convention of the California Democratic Party inside the Sacramento Convention Center. A Sunday report from the Sacramento Bee noted that “the always foul-mouthed Burton, 84, stood before thousands of Democratic delegates at Saturday’s general assembly and as a rallying cry asked the crowd to join in.”

Some of the people on the stage with Burton, along with people in the audience, joined their party chairman and raised their middle fingers. The newspaper disclosed the presence of prominent Democrats with Burton: “Onstage were House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, state Sen. Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, and others.”

The retiring party leader has also used expletives earlier in the convention, according to the Bee‘s article.

“Put your f*%!-ing sign down man, we’re all for it,” Burton said to a crowd of nurses urging fellow Democrats to support a bill in the Legislature that would create a publicly funded universal health care system for California.
