One person in Washington, D.C. took a stand against President Donald Trump on Thursday night by bending over.

Because "we all have a role to play."

According to accounts from the White House press pool, the "moon" incident happened as Trump's motorcade passed through the neighborhood of Cleveland Park on its way to the Kuwaiti Embassy for an event.

As Hunter Walker, a political correspondent for Yahoo! News and a member of the press pool traveling behind the president's car, reported:

"There have been no reported pictures of the incident taking place," Politicus USA's Sean Colarossi commented in response, "but it's not hard to believe such a thing would happen to this president, as he continues to see some of the most dismal approval numbers in modern American history."

And the pun-filled headlines were quick to follow.

With "full-moon salute," a man gets "cheeky with the president."

"A Cleveland Park man has achieved local hero status after dropping his pants and giving the president a show Thursday night."

"A Grown Man Mooned the President’s Motorcade Today Because We All Have a Role to Play."

Though the man behind the uneloquent protest has yet to be identified, the Huffington Post notes that "he has plenty of kindred spirits: In February, hundreds of demonstrators mooned the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago."
