Man Sets Himself On Fire Outside Trump Trial



WARNING: This article contains footage and descriptions that some may find disturbing.

A man set himself on fire Friday outside of the trial against former President Donald Trump.

Footage captured Friday showed the moment a man set himself on fire outside of Trump’s trial in New York at around 1:35 p.m. local time. The individual was initially identified by outlets as Max Azzarello, an “investigative researcher” who claimed responsibility via a Substack post. Azzarello claimed he committed the act of violence against himself to show people that “we are victims of a totalitarian con, and our own government (along with many of their allies) is about to hit us with an apocalyptic fascist world coup.”

The authenticity of the post has not yet been verified though CNN reported the man was carrying a sign advertising a Substack account prior to setting himself alight.

The incident was captured in real-time by a number of news outlets such as CNN and Fox. It’s believed the individual started the fire using one or more accelerants, as CNN’s Laura Coates described. She noted that she could also smell of some type of “agent being used” as the man was burning in front of her.

CNN cut away from the scene as it happened, leaving viewers to listen to Coates’ vivid description of the unfolding situation.

New York Police Department (NYPD) confirmed the man was alive and in critical condition at Cornell Burn Unit as of 3:30 p.m. local time on Friday, according to CNN…
