The phone was thrown to the left of Trump and did not hit him, but flew by him on stage.

“A man threw a cell phone on stage when President Trump walked out for his @nra speech,” Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich tweeted.

Do you think this man should be punished?

“He threw it stage left, while POTUS was closer to stage right.”

It is not yet clear if the person will be charged with a crime.
