Excerpted from Buzzfeed: A lone protestor managed to distract a large swathe of the crowd outside the Capitol for the inauguration on Monday by perching in a tree and yelling for the entirety of the ceremony, as well as for some time beforehand.
The man, who held a circular sign calling for a ban on abortion, had climbed to the top of a skinny pine tree in the front middle of the crowd. He wailed throughout the ceremony from start to finish: “Think of the blood of the babies! Democrats are baby-killers! What about the babies! Stop Obama!” It was unclear who the man was.
He was the only touch of the weird in an otherwise stately ceremony, untouched by protests in a year where protest activity at major political events has been on the decline.
