Protesters Gather Outside of D.C. Deploraball, One Says ‘Screw Our President’ on Fox


Protesters have gathered in Washington D.C. tonight outside the National Press Club where Donald Trump supporters have gathered for an event called “Deploraball.”

The event page for the Deploraball read in part, “There will be many inaugural balls, but there will be nothing like our DEPLORABALL party — our massive, 1,000-person extravaganza to celebrate the Inauguration of President-Elect Trump. Attendees include Trump supporters of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and walks of life, from all over the country and world. This is a ‘big tent’ event for Trump supporters.”

And with a Trump-supporting event taking place in D.C. tonight, there were, of course, protesters gathered outside:

And then there was a pretty crazy moment on Fox News earlier tonight when reporter Griff Jenkins spoke to a young boy who was involved in starting a fire on the ground.

Jenkins asked him why, and the boy responded, “I felt like it and I’m just saying ‘Screw our president!'”
