President Barack Obama got a bit of a surprise at a rally in Philadelphia yesterday when an on-looker threw a book at him.
The book narrowly missed hitting the president, but brought back memories of that notorious moment when someone threw a shoe at then-President George W. Bush.
The Secret Service has not released the name of the shoe-hurler but it’s pretty likely they’ll be reviewing their security protocols after this close call.
A streaker was also arrested at yesterday’s event. You can check out the video below.
