Over the weekend President Bush was visiting Southern Iraq in an effort un-burn the billions of bridges he’s set ablaze over the last 2 terms. While at a press conference, an angry Iraqi reporter launched a pair of shoes at President Bush, screaming “This is a gift from the Iraqis!”. Bush, making the only successful move he’s made while in office, swiftly dodged the shoe and laughed off the incident while the attacker was dragged off. Honestly, it was kind of impressive.
The US President laughed off an incident in Baghdad on Sunday when he was nearly hit by an angry Iraqi reporter’s shoes.
The journalist, Muntather al-Zaidi, 28, a correspondent for the Iraqi station al-Baghdadia, shouted in Arabic: “This is a gift from the Iraqis; this is the farewell kiss, you dog!” He then threw a shoe at Mr Bush, who ducked and narrowly avoided it.
Zaidi then threw his other shoe, shouting in Arabic: “This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq!” Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki’s security agents jumped on Zaidi and hustled him out of the room. He was detained on unspecified charges.
Mr Bush tried to brush off the incident. “All I can report is it is a size 10,” he said. He also called the incident a sign of democracy in the country, saying, “that’s what people do in a free society, draw attention to themselves”, as Zaidi’s screaming was heard outside.
Good god, you just know that guy is going to get shit from his local terrorist group… WORST SUICIDE BOMBER EVER.
