A school-age anti-Trump protester started a fire at a protest in Washington, D.C. because he “felt like it” and wanted to say “screw our president,” the young boy told Fox News.
“My name is Carter and I actually kinda started this fire,” the boy bragged. “Why did you start that fire, Carter?” the Fox News reporter asked.
“Because I felt like it and because I’m just saying, uh, screw our president,” Carter said.
A picture of the fire taken by a Los Angeles Times reporter shows Carter standing at the edge of the blaze alongside another boy wearing a bandana over his face.

It’s unknown whether or not the boy’s parents were present when he set the fire.
Thursday night’s protests centered around a pro-Trump inauguration party called the “Deploraball” — a play on Hillary Clinton’s reference to Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables.”
Protesters chased attendees, threw water bottles at them and accused them of being Nazis.
