Hillary Clinton’s Shoe Throwing Incident A Fraud

Since Hillary Clinton had a shoe thrown at her head by someone in the crowd last week, several prominent conservatives have speculated that the whole incident may have been staged.

According to Talking Points Memo, the commentators don’t trust the official account of what happened in Las Vegas last Thursday where Clinton appeared to have rather slow reflexes to an object that was just hurled at her face.

She flinched after the shoe has already passed her head, then turned and asked the audience “What was that, a bat?” She then cracked a few jokes about it.

The woman responsible, Alison Michelle Ernst, was almost immediately arrested by federal law enforcement and faces two charges after admitting to throwing the shoe.

The incident got attention on the Rush Limbaugh show on Monday. The conservative pundit who enjoys the highest talk radio ratings in the nation admitted he hadn’t seen the video yet, but that he can “relate to people who think that everything the Clintons do is staged or choreographed. I haven’t seen it. I’ve got people telling me her reaction wasn’t natural.”

He also explained why he hasn’t gone out of his way to even try to watch it: “Maybe it’s because, in my subconscious, I think it was staged, or set up, or whatever.” He then questioned “why anybody would be throwing a shoe at Hillary unless — maybe it’s an attempt to make the Benghazi people look like nuts and lunatics and wackos.” Something that’s actually a good possibility.

The incident has also drawn suspicion from Herman Cain, the one-time presidential hopeful who now spends his time helping spread the conservative message. He was vocal about his own skepticism, and tweeted a story that appeared on his website that includes in it “That Hillary shoe-throwing thing does look kind of fake, huh?”

“Hmm…Fakery from the Clintons?” he wrote.

Additionally, a piece written on Fox News’s Bernard Goldberg’s website explained why the author believed the shoe incident to have been faked. He compared it to a similar incident involving then-president George W. Bush back in 2008 when an Iraqi journalist tossed a shoe at him during a press conference.

Bush was much quicker with the response time and was able to duck out of its way, however, and while the main stream media said it was Bush’s policies that caused his incident they’re praising Hillary for how she handled hers.

Arthur Lewis explained that almost everything that happens to Hillary is “carefully calculated” beforehand. “This is almost always true, the one trivial exception being the nomination and election of Barack Obama in 2008,” he explained.

“So it would not be stretching logic to suppose that Hillary arranged to have the shoe thrown at her.”
