The highest profile scheduled protests against the illegitimate inauguration of Donald Trump aren’t set to take place until tomorrow, but that hasn’t stopped large crowds of protesters from taking over chunks of Washington DC already today. In fact protesters have essentially taken control of K Street, even as police are reportedly using flash grenades against the protesters in what is being described by participants as a heated battle.

A video of the police flash bangs in action was posted by New York Times reporter Nick Corasaniti. Washington Post reporter Dalton Bennett was wrestled to the ground by police for videotaping them. And this first-hand photo was posted to Twitter by Washington Post reporter Matea Gold, depicting large crowds and an isolated fire:


Is this really America?


Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s inauguration parade route is nearly empty because everyone hates him.
