Man sets himself on fire near White House
CNBC ^ | May 29 2019 | Dan Mangan, Kevin Breuninger

A man sets himself on fire Wednesday on the Ellipse in downtown Washington, across from the White House, the Secret Service said.
A spokesman for the Washington Fire Department tells CNBC, “I can confirm that we’ve transported one patient with burns from the Ellipse and we’re now on the scene assisting law enforcement,” referring to Park Police and U.S. Secret Service officers.
Alina Berzins says she was visiting the National Mall with two of her cousins from Bolivia when “we saw this man” on the Ellipse and “he starts running, and then we saw him covered in flames.”

Self-immolation is so cliche. It’s lost its sizzle.

I am so sorry to see people go to these lengths. Obviously insane, if only with rage or terror.

Perhaps this guy was trying to gas up his weedwacker, spilled the whole jug on himself, and then........FIRE!! Will be reported as a workplace incident. Trump’s Fault.
