Conservatives have never met an element of reality that they couldn't twist into complete and utter unreality for the sake of advancing some bullshit partisan smear. Case in point:
Call them the shoe truthers.
Not to worry, though. They haven't exhausted Benghazi yet, so this is probably just the sideshow du jour. Just get ready for many, many more of them if Hillary decides to run for president.
Some conservative media figures are openly wondering if Hillary Clinton staged an incident
during a speech in Las Vegas on Thursday in which a woman in the
audience threw a shoe at her. The shoe appeared to miss the rumored 2016
presidential hopeful, who ducked and made light of it, while the
reported thrower, Alison Michelle Ernst, was booked by the authorities.
A blog post
published Monday at the website of Fox News commentator Bernard
Goldberg speculated that Clinton probably "calculated it beforehand," as
is "almost always true" with things that happen to her...
On Monday, Rush Limbaugh entertained the same idea, telling radio
listeners he "can totally relate" to those who believe that "everything
the Clintons do is staged or choreographed." Asked about it by a
listener, he emphasized that he hadn't studied the incident and isn't
too concerned about it, but said people have told him Clinton's reaction
