A very loud, very persistent pro-life protester “managed to distract a large swathe of the crowd outside the Capitol for the inauguration on Monday by perching in a tree and yelling for the entirety of the ceremony, as well as for some time beforehand,” BuzzFeed reports. Various bystanders suggested that the man “suck on this” or commit suicide. Credit where it’s due, though — that was a pretty crafty move.
