Hillary ducks shoe thrown at her during speech
American Thinker ^ | 04/11/2014 | Rick Moran

Posted on 04/11/2014 8:08:29 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

If the shoe fits...

Hillary Clinton receives $250,000 in speaking fees  - peanuts compared to Bill  - but I'll bet she'd give it all back to avoid this kind of embarrassment.

Clinton was addressing a convention of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries in Las Vegas when an unknown woman approached the stage and tossed a shoe at the former secretary of state.

Hillary ducked and then joked about the incident:

Mark Carpenter, a representative for the organization hosting the event — the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries — stressed that the woman “was not affiliated with our organization and was not credentialed for this event.”

“Our staff denied her access before she later rushed past security,” he continued in a statement. “An ISRI staffer then stopped her as she approached the stage. She was then handed over to law enforcement.”

The incident is reminiscent of a 2008 scene in which then-President George W. Bush ducked during a news conference in Baghdad when an Iraqi attendee threw two shoes at him.

Saw the video last night. Her reflexes are painfully slow. That shoe was a good 6 feet behind her head before she actually ducked. If the person throwing it had been a better shot, it would have clocked her royally.

Fox said the shoe thrower was “in custody” by the SS. What could they charge them with? assault? They had a pretty good arm and I only wish it had hit the Beast squarely in her ugly face.

We sure aren’t hearing much about the identity of the show thrower I notice. If it was a TEA member, we would know their entire life story already.

Isn’t there a certain culture who is famous for show throwing and thinks its the ultimate insult? It couldn’t be,,,,, naaaaa

Remember how the delighted media made a point that the throwing of shoes showed the utter disrespect that people in the Middle East had for Pres. Bush?

*******************************************************************

Nah, that’s the type of reaction when she hears something along the lines of “Putin’s on the phone for you...”.

And it’s funny how her first thought was that it was a bat flying around her head. That’s something she’s familiar with and used to.

Why did they say she “ducked”. She reacted way after the show had passed by her. Her reaction was way way off. As Reagan said “I forgot to duck”.

Quite accurate throws by the shoe guy. Both in the mellon zone had Pres been as slow as Cankles.

That would be my guess. When you watch the video, she appears to be smirking through the whole 'incident'. She treated it like she was doing stand up comedy with a *planted* heckler in the audience. And all the brain numbed dolts will say, "Man she's one quick comeback." And Hitlery just put herself in the headlines...

Maybe it was contrived, stagea but those pictures of her are a horror. For someone like that to possibly be president of the US. I like to steam liberals off by saying “I don’t think she can be elected at 79 years old” because they always go out of their way to correct me, “She 69 years old, not 79”. Even if it is Hillary and some others, I don’t like to say detracting things about women but let it be, she looks like “Her Frumpiness” and I don’t really say that to be mean or offend anyone.

Probably one of those women Bill dallied with only to have the beast come after her in order to destroy her life. Or maybe it is a daughter of one of those gals.

Or...could be a Benghazi relative.

In either of those cases, I doubt the MSM would want to pursue the show thrower.

Capitol Hill Blue has more details:
Ilene Rosen, the wife of a conventioneer from Denver who was seated in the second row, said she saw an orange object fly toward the stage from a side aisle and papers fluttering in the air.

Rosen said the woman had walked to a rope line within six rows of the front of the seating area, threw the items, turned around, put her hands in the air and walked up the aisle toward the back of the room. Security officers quickly caught up with her.

In the hotel hallway, the middle-aged blonde woman sat calmly on a sofa, wearing a blue dress and thong sandals. She said she threw a shoe and dropped some papers, but didn’t identify herself to reporters or explain the action. Security officials then ushered reporters and photographers away.

Spellacy and Mark Carpenter, spokesman for the recycling institute, said the woman wasn’t a credentialed convention member and wasn’t supposed to have been in the ballroom.

An attendee sitting near Rosen later handed a reporter a piece of paper that he said the woman threw. It appeared to be a declassified copy of a Department of Defense document labeled confidential and dated August 1967; it referred to a Bolivian Army operation called “Cynthia” in Bolivia.
