DUCKS “CHIPMONKS” SHOE THROWN AT HER BY WOMAN IN VEGAS
“What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” goes an old saw. Well, not always. This video clip shows Hillary Clinton’s reaction to a shoe thrown at her by a blonde female heckler during a speech the former secretary of state delivered in Las Vegas on Thursday. So the only thing that stayed in Vegas is that flying shoe.
“Was that a bat?” Hillary asks after regaining composure.
No, it was a “batwoman.”
The woman in question 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, according to this story at WBAL radio station.
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.
