Compared to how tame and uneventful most political rallies are, the rally held by President Obama in Philadelphia yesterday was like the Gathering of the Juggalos. Not only did one guy streak naked for a million dollars, but Obama became the latest in a long and illustrious line of American politicians who have had things thrown at them when someone flung a book his way. Obama didn’t seem to notice, but the moment was captured on video (at the :23 mark).
Obviously it’s dangerous anytime someone is able to throw something at the president. If you really wanted to harm the president, though, would you throw a book? Perhaps as with the naked guy, then, this was yet another publicity stunt. Once we find out the name of the book that was thrown at Obama people are already scrutinizing the back cover it’ll immediately become a runaway best-seller among the tea partiers.
Alabama Governor Kay Ivey tries openly shaming the unvaccinated
Folks are supposed to have common sense … It’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down … I’ve done all I know how to do. I can encourage you to do something, but I can’t make you take care of yourself.
