My first question: Where the hell was the Secret Service? Someone throws something at the President of the United States and there's no swarm of security protecting the president? And then the guy throws something else?? Where was the security on that guy?
CNN has the story. In it we find this paragraph:
Throwing shoes at someone, or sitting so that the bottom of a shoe faces another person, is considered an insult among Muslims.Gee, is there a culture on the planet where throwing a shoe at someone is a show of affection??
I don't care that this involves the worst president ever. I don't care that that journalist was looking to insult the worst president ever. He's still president (and the worst ever) and the Secret Service is supposed to be on guard when stuff like this happens.
