This Thursday night, during a speech at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas, possible 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton successfully dodged an airborne shoe that was thrown at her by a woman in the crowd.
While Clinton laughed it off, the woman who threw the offending object was taken into federal custody. No word yet on a motive from her, but that’s okay because Twitter hasn’t stopped talking since the whole thing went down.
Haters ran to the internet immediately after the incident.

The only thing that shocks me is the fact that this is the first time someone has thrown a shoe at Hillary Clinton. — Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 10, 2014
And then the jokes started.
A protester in Las Vegas threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton. Unfortunately it was a TOMS shoe, so some kid overseas just got hit with one too. — Jamie Woodham (@jwoodham) April 11, 2014
Should the countdown to Fox News celebrating the woman who threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton with an interview begin at zero?

We’re pretty sure the internet ruined the whole “what happens in Vegas” thing a long time ago.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…unless it’s Hillary Clinton dodging a shoe thrown at her! Watch: http://t.co/34iiYySG1l

Shoe thrown at Hillary. But this was Las Vegas. Maybe it was just an errant bachelorette party. Was it a Manolo? — Karen Tumulty (@ktumulty) April 10, 2014
Some women just don’t take their appearance that seriously.
And even sports fans had something to say about it.
The Giants should sign the chick that tossed the shoe at Hillary… she might have a better arm than Vogey at this point.
