The Democratic Party is far gone in hate, but who do you suppose are the most lunatic Dems of all? The California Democrats are obvious candidates and, sure enough, their state convention yesterday concluded with a chant: “Fuck Donald Trump!” led by California Democratic Party chairman John Burton.
AP reporter Jonathan Cooper records the moment of infamy:

There is a lot more at Gateway Pundit, and various videos are circulating. What I want to point out is the Associated Press’s restrained response to this outbreak of Democratic Party insanity. The AP headlines: “California Democrats take aim at Trump, GOP Congress.” I guess that’s one way of putting it.
California’s elected Democrats had tough words for President Donald Trump and the GOP Congress on Saturday, urging their party’s fired-up activists to work against the 14 Republicans in the state’s congressional delegation.
Senator Kamala Harris came out with this mind-numbingly stupid observation, but then, mind-numbingly stupid is what it takes to get elected to the Senate in California. Cf. Barbara Boxer.
U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, often mentioned as a potential candidate for president in 2020, accused Trump of putting “Russia first, America second.”
The reckless Ms. Harris is of course secure in the knowledge that no reporter will ever ask her what, exactly, President Trump has done for Russia. But this is the real point:
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.
Now, just imagine how the AP would have reported on a state Republican convention that concluded in middle-finger-raised chants of “Fuck Barack Obama!” Do you think that would have been described as “a sign of the vigor of the party’s distaste for the president”? No, I don’t think so, either. California’s Democrats have gone insane, but how far behind is the Associated Press?
