As the celebration of Donald Trump’s inauguration goes into full-swing, one event has gotten more attention than all the others: The DeploraBall.

On Thursday, angry protesters were out in force outside the event, chasing partygoers and even setting a fire in the street in front of the entrance.

Attendees of the DeploraBall, held at the National Press Club building, were greeted by a swarm of protesters chanting “Nazi scum off our streets.”

Those protesters eventually set a small fire in the street.

Credit for setting the fire was claimed by a child named “Carter,” who said he did it “because I felt like it and because I’m just saying screw our president.”

As partiers left, they were greeted by protesters who harassed them, even chasing some to security areas.

The protesters then devolved into chants of “Fuck the police,” “Anarchy now,” and “Abolish the police.”

The party was the subject of an undercover video released by Project Veritas showing left-wing radicals plotting to release butyric acid in the HVAC system of the National Press Club in an attempt to shut it down.
