A San Francisco company has posted ads in more than 20 cities nationwide seeking protesters to demonstrate at President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration, offering to pay up to $2,500, The Washington Times reported.

"Get paid fighting against Trump!" bellowed the ad listed on the website backpage.com, The Times reported.

Demand Protest, calling itself the "largest private grassroots support organization in the U.S.," is offering a retainer of $2,500 plus "our standard per-event pay of $50/hr, as long as you participate in at least 6 events a year," The Times reported.

Though reports of paid agitators has been debunked as "fake news," Demand Protest has a working phone number.

"We are strategists mobilizing millennials across the globe with seeded audiences and desirable messages," a message reads on the website. "With absolute discretion a top priority, our operatives create convincing scenes that become the building blocks of massive movements. When you need the appearance of outrage, we are able to deliver it at scale while keeping your reputation intact."

The site also claims to have supported 17 causes, run 48 campaigns, and boasts 1,800 operatives.
