Hot Mic At Pope’s Capitol Visit Catches Woman Saying She Wants To Throw Her Shoe

September 24, 2015 11:12 am

CNN’s live feed of Pope Francis’ Thursday address to a joint session of Congress picked up audio of a woman saying she would “take my shoe off and throw it at his head” just before the pontiff entered the House chamber.

Neither the identity of the speaker nor the theoretical target of her airborne shoe were clear from the live feed. Pope Francis had yet to enter the chamber when the audio was picked up.
