Liberalism truly appears to have become a mental disorder.  On Wednesday, the UK Daily Mail and others reported that a California man was taken to the hospital after he set himself on fire in front of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., in a protest against the President-elect.

According to the Daily Mail:

The man, who has not yet been identified, said the act was in protest of the President-elect’s looming inauguration.

Witnesses described how he yelled ‘Trump’ several times as ‘flames ran up his back’ before lying down in the street.

He suffered non-life-threatening burns and was taken to hospital shortly after the incident at around 9.30pm.

A Washington DC Police source told DailyMail.com he was not arrested.

“I was trying to light myself on fire…it was an act of protest,” he told NBC DC reporter Shomari Stone.

“(I’m protesting) the fact that we’ve elected somebody who is completely incapable of respecting the constitution of the United States,” he further said.

Here’s a video report, courtesy of ABC7:

According to the Daily Caller:

The man appears to not have suffered serious injuries from the fire. NBC News cameras showed what appeared to be a pile of clothes ablaze in the middle of the street.

The Daily Mail added:

A Washington DC Police source said the man was injured but that his wounds were not serious.

A by-passer said it was not initially clear what the man was protesting when he set fire to items of clothing in the street outside the hotel.

‘He set himself on fire and as flames ran up his back he yelled Trump several times then lay down in the street.

By the way, this isn’t the first time someone set themselves on fire to protest Trump, as we reported here.

Exit question: Will this man be given the professional help he obviously needs?
