In what might be the dumbest protest of President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration a man set himself on fire in front of Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.
“I was trying to light myself on fire…it was an act of protest,” the California man told NBC.
“(I’m protesting) the fact that we’ve elected somebody who is completely incapable of respecting the constitution of the United States,” the unidentified man said.
A witness walking by the scene told NBC that the man yelled Trump several times before being engulfed in flames.

“He set himself on fire and as flames ran up his back he yelled Trump several times then lay down in the street,” witness Michael Shoag said.
“(He) then walked over to the police/security,” he continued.
