Hillary Clinton had a shoe thrown at her during a speech in Las Vegas on Thursday.

An unidentified female protester was taken into custody after the incident at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, where Clinton was addressing an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting.


The assailant threw a shoe at the former Secretary of State and potential 2016 presidential candidate before being taken away by security personnel.

Clinton resumed her remarks after the disturbance.

She reportedly joked, “Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?”

“My goodness, I didn’t know that solid waste management was so controversial,” Clinton is quoted as saying.

The shoe-thrower was reportedly arrested.
