A kid who started a street fire as a protest is a hero! To Democrats, that is.
Connor, an otherwise-unidentified young boy in Washington, D.C., became an overnight sensation when he was briefly interviewed by roving Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins amidst protesting outside the Republican-sponsored event known as the “Deploraball” the night before the inauguration of President Donald Trump.
This young man, who appeared to be unaccompanied outside the National Press Club where the ball was being held, seemed proud of his handiwork, which was merely a pile of ashes by the time Jenkins showed up. He also used choice words when he was asked about why he started the miniature blaze. But whether these words were his own choice of a response or were what he was coached to say by his likely liberal activist parents is highly debatable.
What isn’t debatable, however, is the outsized response from progressives and members of the mainstream media as they turned the minor vandal into a virtual folk hero in the space of a news cycle. Connor became a trending topic on Twitter and social media, with plenty of progressives giving the little twerp plaudits for what was essentially an illegal act.
Watch for yourself what little Connor told the reporter he did and what he had to say about President Trump.
