As if he’s been training to duck all his life!
ABC News’ Martha Raddatz reports from Baghdad: Not everyone is excited about President Bush’s surprise trip to Iraq.
An Iraqi man in Prime Minister Nouri-al Maliki’s palace threw two shoes at President Bush during a joint press conference with Maliki. The president had to duck to avoid the shoes but he was not hit.
The man was grabbed and dragged out screaming.
Bush joked about it and said, “that was a size ten shoe he threw at me you may want you to know. “
As security grabbed the man, White House press secretary Dana Perino got knocked beneath her eye by a microphone.
After order had been restored to the room, the man could still be heard screaming from another room.
