Republican Party of Florida Chair Blaise Ingoglia sent out a fundraising message to the membership on Wednesday night, slamming Television Celebrity Kathy Griffin for a photo she took with what was meant to be the decapitated head of President Donald Trump.
The message titled “This is disgusting” also notes that many Florida Democrats have refused to condemn the photo.
“Many liberals, including the Florida Democrats and Senator Bill Nelson refuse to come out and condemn Kathy Griffin’s photoshoot. The Democratic Party is out of touch and lost.” says Ingoglia, later asking “Can you imagine the rioting in the street if a Republican did this to a Democrat?”
Griffin has since apologized for the photograph and has been fired by CNN. Trump himself tweeted that his 11 year old son, Barron, was having a difficult time with the image.
The Republican Party of Florida helped the state turn red for Trump last November and is looking to fill the warchest for the 2018 mid terms, where they’ll try to keep the Governor’s mansion, the cabinet, and Republican majorities in the state legislature.
