PHILADELPHIA, PA — While historic moments were being made inside the Wells Fargo Center, some legitimately terrifying and hilarious stuff was happening outside — mostly involving sweating, screaming, and alpacas.
Some of the most passionate people at this year's DNC are the protestors who've traveled from all over the country — and the world — to let their voices be heard. It's important, necessary, and (as many protestors noted) is "what democracy looks like."
HOWEVER, steady 90+ degree weather and "political fervor" have led to pretty inexplicable moments in the last few days. Don't believe me? I've got pictures to prove it:
This alpaca is named Shea. She is protesting the DNC. She is an anarchist.
"She doesn't like government involving corporations," her human told me. "She's not fond of corporate America."
Not really a moment, but I'm still including a "prolonged anguish from sweating profusely" photo for the record.
It's Always Sweaty in Philadelphia.
