Audience Member Hurls Book at Obama During Philly Speech
Obama’s Sunday event, before a mostly black audience, was somewhat smaller and less enthusiastic than last week’s rally in Madison.
Except for the book that was tossed at him that the AP did not report on.
It narrowly missed him.
Once again, it took the British press to report on this incident.
The Daily Mail reported:
This is the astonishing moment a book was apparently hurled at the head of U.S. President Barack Obama during a campaign rally in Philadelphia.
The flying missile narrowly missed hitting the President today.
It is not clear where it came from in the crowd.
But it is expected that there will be fallout from the security breach as the Secret Service investigates how close the President came to danger.
The rally was clearly an eventful one – other images showed a naked man being led away in handcuffs by police.
It is not clear if the man was involved in the book-throwing incident – or why he was not wearing any clothes.
