Officials say a man was burned after setting himself on fire in the middle of Pennyslvania Avenue... in an apparent act of protest to Donald Trump. The 45-year-old man was taken to the hospital with third-degree burns. He's expected to be ok. Earlier in the evening, anti-Trump protesters tied up rush hour traffic as they gathered outside the hotel. Tens of thousands of demonstrators are expected to flood D.C. on Inauguration Day to protest the swearing-in of Trump as the country's 45th president.
