The night before the inauguration, a young kid was interviewed outside the “Deploraball.”
He started a fire and said, “Screw our President.”
Here’s the original interview:
FOX NEWS REPORTER GRIFF JENKINS: We’re outside the National Press Club. You can see the police presence. There are signs thanking President Obama. Obviously, tt’s mostly peaceful now. A fire broke out just behind us. There is a fire over here. We’ll show you where that was. The ashes now just sort of starting to simmer right in the middle of this. Excuse me one second. This fire was started. In fact, this young man, you are participating in the fire. What’s your name?
BOY: My name’s Carter and I actually kind of started this fire.
JENKINS: So why did you start that fire, Carter?
BOY: Uh, it’s Carter.
JENKINS: Sorry. Why did you start that fire?
BOY: Because I felt like it and because I’m just saying, screw our president.
Now, there are reports that the kid is comedian Drew Carey’s son.
Connor Carey is reportedly the young protester in a Fox News video of an inauguration rally where protesters were seen burning signs.
The 11-year-old, who identifies himself as Connor, told Fox News’ Griff Jenkins he “kind of started this fire” because “I felt like it and because I’m just saying ‘screw our president.'”
TMZ reported the child in the video is Drew Carey’s son. A rep for the TV star could not immediately verify Carey’s son is the child in the video, but a picture of the comedian with his son on Carey’s Instagram account appears to show the same child in the video.
Drew Carey calls himself a Libertarian, not a Liberal.
Either way: Nice parenting, Drew!
