California's outgoing Democratic Party chairman reportedly said "f--k Donald TrumpDonald TrumpRomney blasts end of filibuster, expansion of SCOTUS McConnell, GOP slam Biden's executive order on SCOTUS US raises concerns about Iran's seriousness in nuclear talks MORE" from the stage while holding up two middle fingers at the state party's convention this weekend.

The crowd cheered Chairman John Burton, according to The Associated Press.

During the convention, Sen. Kamala Harris also blasted Trump, saying he is putting "Russia first, America second."

Gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsome, the current lieutenant governor, said California can be the center of liberal resistance to Trump.

“The world, literally the world, is counting on all of you, counting on California to reject Trump’s deception and destructiveness,” Newsom said, according to the AP. 

The convention comes as the Trump White House faces a series of controversies.


Reports surfaced recently that the president shared highly classified information with Russian officials and told former FBI Director James Comey to end a federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Additional reports said that during Trump's meeting with Russian officials, he called Comey a "nut job" and said his firing relieved great pressure.

The Justice Department last week appointed a special counsel for the probe into the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia and that nation's 2016 election meddling.
