From the video:
Man: “I was trying to light myself on fire. As an act of protest. As an act of protest.”
Off-camera voice: “Protesting what?”
Man: “Protesting the fact that we’ve elected somebody that . . . that’s incapable of – of respecting the Constitution of the United States.”
So you light yourself on fire?
Or fail to light yourself on fire?
“A man was burned seriously Tuesday night after he apparently tried to set a fire outside the Trump Hotel in downtown Washington, according to the police and fire departments. It was not clear if the man deliberately set himself on fire, or why he was setting a fire.
As given to the police and fire departments, the incident occurred outdoors at 12th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. President-elect Donald Trump’s hotel is located between 11th and 12th Streets NW on the south side of Pennsylvania. An ambulance was sent to the scene at 9:23 p.m., the fire department said. According to information from the police and fire departments, the man was taken to a hospital after being burned.”

It looks like all he did was set some clothes on fire.
Imagine being a random left-winger and thinking so highly of yourself that you believe people will care if you light yourself on fire.
