A female Trump supporter had her hair set on fire by a female Democrat who was protesting the inauguration of President Donald Trump in Washington, D.C. on Friday–all while the anti-Trump mob chanted, “Love Trump’s hate!”

The video shows two white female and two male Trump supporters engaging in peaceful debate with a group of anti-Trump protesters. The two female Trump supporters, one with her hair in braids, take turns posing for photographs in front of the protesters. The second woman to pose has long hair hanging freely down her back. Someone within the anti-Trump mob reaches out and sets the Trump supporter’s hair on fire. Fortunately one of the male Trump supporters standing with them sees the female’s hair on fire and quickly puts it out with his bare hand. A puff of smoke can be seen rising from the female Trump supporter’s back.
The video was posted to the YouTube account of Daniel and Geneva Ledon. The Ledons added commentary and enhanced viewing for some parts of the video.
