President Donald Trump just had a phone hurled at him during his introduction and an NRA convention.
In a video clip shared on Twitter, the U.S. President can be seen walking toward the podium when the phone suddenly appears, after being launched toward the stage.
Journalist Bradley Brewer reports that "the individual was swiftly arrested and the President continued with no problem."

Many have been commenting on the alleged attempted assault of the President, with one Twitter user saying, "This was a dry run. Phones can be made to explode. Scary."
"Just goes to show how economically wasteful the libs are! Have you bought a phone lately? They're expensive," another person joked.
1. Who is that STUPID?— Scott Campbell (@scottcped) April 26, 2019
2. Who has the money to just chuck their smart phone?
3. How did they infiltrate the NRA convention?
4. Did the police save this person from great bodily harm from the other attendees?
"How does that kind of crap happen? I hope the perp is beaten severely by the SS prior to arrest," someone else commented.
"They ban guns at the [NRA] convention. Maybe they will ban phones, too?" one other person quipped.
Clearly not an NRA member who threw the phone. He/She wouldn't have missed.— Ken Fairbrother (@KenFairbrother) April 26, 2019
Some have wondered if the person who threw the phone was simply waving and it flew out of their hand.
"Bad aim! Are they sure he was not waving and it flew out of his hands?" a Twitter user inquired. "That's like something I would do."
It wasn’t even close. I wonder if they threw it or they were just cheering, jumping up and down, and it flew out of their hand.— Jeremy Bell (@bellvedere) April 26, 2019
"It would be best for that person to argue they were not trying to hit the President. It would seem more plausible," a second individual suggested.
"I believe it was a slip. He waved to hard. The phone flew the other way," one last commenter said.0comments
If the phone was indeed thrown intentionally, Trump is not the first President to be the victim of airborne debris being tossed him. Former President George W. Bush once had a shoe thrown at him during a press conference.
At this time, the current status of the alleged phone thrower is unknown.
