'Deploraball' Attendees Chased, Beaten by DisruptJ20 Protesters

A motley crew of disheveled protesters gathered outside the National Press Club, where the DeploraBall was held, to harass partygoers, set random fires and vandalize public sidewalks and streets. And RT's Alexander Rubinstein tweeted that police pushed his head "into heavy camera" and protesters are throwing bikes, explosives, signs, and more. Other protesters played music, carried signs, and projected messages-including "Impeach the Predatory President"-on the building's façade".

A protester winces in pain after being pepper sprayed by police during a protest ahead of the presidential inauguration, Thursday, Jan. 19, 2017, in Washington. According to NBC 4, no arrests were made. "There are so many cops here. there's probably one cop for every five people, I think", he says, narrating the scene. "And make sure that they see you well beyond today!" "This started out tonight being a small, little concert, and then we had the idea, maybe we'll do it in front of the Lincoln Memorial - I don't know if it's ever been done before, but if it has, very seldom", he said. "This is a "big tent" event for Trump supporters". "These are ultra-lefties who are behaving radically", said Ram Lubranicki.

As attendees leave the building, protesters have been seen throwing water bottles at them and shouting "Nazi scum"-prompting police to once again deploy tear gas". Police offers are seen putting out a garbage can fire in the video. "I would be livid if people who supported Trump were doing this to Hillary supporters". About a thousand so-called "deplorables" attended the event at the National Press Club.
