A protester threw water on the leg of the tall man, who was wearing a tuxedo and cowboy hat. He appeared unfazed by the situation.

Another woman in a bright yellow dress did not fare as well. Two different protesters tossed water on her a total of four times. She seemed unhappy and attempted to block the water with her hand. One of the demonstrators then threw the bottle at the woman.

There were several incidents in which protesters attempted to disrupt President Trump's inauguration.
