Skip to comments.'Shoe' Thrown at Hillary Clinton During Speech
Posted on 04/10/2014 4:07:35 PM PDT by ColdOne
A woman was taken into custody after throwing what she described as a shoe at Hillary Clinton during a Las Vegas speech.
The incident happened moments after Clinton took the stage Thursday at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino.
Clinton ducked but did not appear to be hit by the object, and then joked about it.
"Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?" Clinton quipped.
She added: "My goodness, I didn't know that solid waste management was so controversial. Thank goodness she didn't play softball like I did."

Scrap Recycling Industries meeting
just the place for MRS CLINTON
Im surprised she made it OUT of the place!!
She played softball? OMG that does it...she is such a fat lesbian!
But things are different if Hillary is involved, I guess.
Well, she is a private citizen so this should be a case of simple battery, nothing more.
I also notice that her alleged hubby has made some negative comments about obozo’s economy recently. 2016 is heating up already.
I was thinking she might be outing herself. I mean, when someone referred to Elena Kagan’s softball playing days weren’t they accused of suggesting she was a lesbian?? Oh wait, it’s that pesky double standard again, isn’t it!
And nobody yelled “Duck!”
No, Hillary, we all love solid waste management...and you are the solid waste of which we want to rid ourselves!
Too bad it wasn’t a horseshoe.
I don’t like the Bush family, but I must say W. was pretty good at ducking shoes:

“I didn’t know that solid waste management was so controversial.” Oh, the irony.
Someone should throw the book at her!
That’s a start!
Of course she played softball....

Scrap Recycling... oh, the irony.
Was it a horseshoe? Hillary has the IQ of a horseshoe stake.
Something a little more pineapple-y next time, lady !
Time to take out the trash.
Did she swipe at it with her broom?
Who wrote those comebacks for her?
When this happened to George W Bush, I think it was taken as proof that everyone on the planet hated his guts.
And this is on home soil.
Throwing Truth at Power. How the worm has turned against these aging, ex-anti-establishment hippies, like this communist witch.
Hooray for the thrower!
Eat leather, you felonious, wretched, lying, greedy, power-mad, sanctimonious psychopathic weasel!
Is there some broken law that would enable a citizen’s arrest of this creature?(I cannot even say its name!)
That picture obviously slipped by the MSM photoshoppers who de-wrinklize every photo of the Witch.
This was constitutionally-protected free speech. It was performance art. You can write plays about assassinating George W. Bush and we are told to understand the rage and accept the work as critically-acclaimed art. By those standards, a shoe hurled at Mrs. Clinton should be seen in the same light.
H! should have the Book thrown at her.
The individual should have handcuffed her and, then, turned her into the authorities for her many crimes against civilization.
Wow! she’s really got old and ugly and we want that for a president.
OK, who put the photo of Helen Thomas here?
The whole thing smells like a Clinton scripted “event”. She acted almost as if she expected it to happen.
“Clinton took the stage Thursday at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting”
picking up so more crony capitalist donations she is
Vegas ? Is that where she lost $6 billion from the State Dept??
“That reminded me of the time that I came under sniper fire.” Whew!
She has stepped in a huge pile of obama and she’s about to be hit with it.
A piece of paper apparently thrown by the woman at Hillary Clinton was recovered after the speech. An Associated Press reporter described the paper as, a copy of a Department of Defense document labeled confidential and dated August 1967; it referred to an operation Cynthia in Bolivia.
Operation Cynthia was a 1967 effort involving 2,500 Bolivian troops to capture revolutionary leader Che Guevara.
What Operation Cynthia has to do with Hillary Clinton, who was a 19-year-old undergraduate at Wellesley College when it took place, was not made clear.
What the heck?
Prob’ly a Berkenstock.
Probably the highest honor she’s been paid.
Would have preferred a brick..or fecal matter
That photo is priceless, reminds me of the Wicked Witch in the Wizard Of Oz: I’ll get you and your little dog too
And if not...what difference does it make?
Info on making a citizens arrest.
Lots of nut cases have tried this on personages like Dick Cheney, who belted the guy. Various Bush officials were harassed by attempted citizen’s arrests. It’s mostly a tactic used by lunatic fringe groups.
In my opinion I’d never attempt it as I have no way to restrain somebody and they aren’t going to hang around if you just threaten them. It’s either shoot them or call the cops and let them handle it. The only reason I’d even try it was to protect myself or others from harm. But if they moved towards I’d shoot. (In theory) If they moved away and nobody had been killed, I’d let them go.
A citizen is on shaky ground here. Unless you have money to burn on lawyers, don’t try.
They should have thrown some "solid waste" at her!
