What the Heck is Going On in DC?!
First we have the actions of the Conservative Wing of the Republican Party. Then we have the unfortunate incident of the mother who attempted to crash into the White House and the Capitol. AND NOW SOMEONE SETS HIMSELF ON FIRE ON THE NATIONAL MALL?!
From the CNN link:
Washington (CNN) — Law enforcement and medical personnel rushed to Washington’s National Mall on Friday afternoon to assist a man who reportedly set himself on fire.
Officer Hugh Carew, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Department, said the initial report was the man was conscious and breathing. Carew could not confirm how the fire had started.
Adam Stifel saw part of the incident as he was running.
“I saw a man sitting in flames,” Stifel told CNN. “He had already doused himself in gasoline, I believe.”
Stifel said five or six people used their shirts to pat out the fire. He said he saw a red gasoline canister near the man.
The incident occurred near the National Air and Space Museum. The man was airlifted out to receive medical care.
Seriously, what is going on?! Full moon? Deep national angst? Freud’s Death Drive?
