Two attendees at the Republican National Convention were thrown out of the convention center in Tampa on Tuesday after throwing nuts at a black CNN camerawoman and saying, “this is how we feed the animals.”

CNN reported that multiple witnesses saw it happen, and police immediately removed the two people from the premises. Former MSNBC and Current host David Shuster, who is attending the convention, tweeted about the incident earlier on Tuesday:

Talking Points Memo then reached out to CNN, which confirmed that an incident had taken place in a statement it later sent to The Huffington Post.

    It is beyond my understanding how people forget that as much as the candidates/opponents promise all of this political help and dedication they can’t do anything without congress/ house of representatives approval or disapproval. Congress whine and fight elementary school kids, they whine, cry , kick , scream, pout retaliate just like kids. They have lost chararcter. Both candidates are afraid to lose votes if they mention the poor. People who have nothing won’t lose either way becausee neither party has helped them. the republicans don’t want anyone to get any more than jthey have so they win if Romney wins. Blacks that vote republican are detached. I’m disappointed that this isn’t about all the amererica people it’s about selfish political favor, race and gain.
