On the eve of President Donald Trump’s inauguration, Fox News contributor Pete Hegseth spoke with anti-Trump protesters outside of the “Deploraball” in Washington D.C. Hegseth, and Army Veteran, made a joke leading into the segment that his military training helped him keep come as some of the protestors got violent.
Hegseth went into the crowd of protesters outside the National Press Club to get an inside look into why they were there protesting.
“The majority of people think that he’s (Trump) illegitimate,” one protester said.
“As you can tell, we have a very tolerant group out here” Hegseth says, as a phone is thrown at him.
“You say we live in dangerous times. Are you talking about ISIS?” Hegseth asks one protester.
“I’m talking about Donald Trump,” the protester responded.
Another protester said that he would prefer to live in the Soviet Union than live in the United States with Donald Trump as President.
“Stalin would be a hell of a lot better than Trump,” the protester said.
At the protest, police used pepper spray on protesters that were getting violent. Protesters were chanting “Fu** Trump” and “Nazi scum” as well.
