Ronald Reagan - "Missed me."
Reagan reacting to a different balloon at a different speech

Follow by Email
Uploaded myself because I personally had a hard time finding the clip. President Ronald Reagan was giving a speech at a U.S. Air Force base in West Berlin when a balloon popped very loudly. This was after Reagan was shot in an attempt on his life a mere 2 months after the beginning of his first term. Reagan's response to the popping sound was a quick witted, "Missed me."


themusicman2005 : Wait a minute how many times did this happen?


Voice in the Desert l Christian Talk Show : Dude is amazing lol

Wize Man : I learned about this in history class to day

Mr Mister : Are you sure this happened in West Berlin? Because as a young adult I attended a speech Reagan gave in Los Angeles in a hotel conference room where he was campaigning for George H Bush and Governor Dukemajian and at the top of the ceiling were a large contingent of balloons and while he was speaking of the balloons popped really loud and without hesitation Reagan said , "Missed me". Could be this happened twice. But I saw it happen in Los Angeles CA (Wilshire district).

Classyyert : Ha! It's funny because he was shot

Anand : Why the hell would you put crappy music over that

Neurotic Sos : Maybe he was suicidal

Becky Earnest : This clip is not from his West Berlin speech, which was June 12, 1987, over 6 years after Reagan was shot. This is a different clip of him delivering this wonderful quip. Do you know the date of the speech in this clip?

CSX2665 : He a straight up G lol

Steeler Nation03-6 : So good I love it

Dwok The Rayne Jonsohn : Classic

Azhar Sudi : So.... a person has a gun, and had taken fire. *Is anyone gonna at lease evacuate?*

Wheat Harvester : Hit or miss

christopher4265 : times were very different back then. now, if that happened, the whole area would be locked down, swat teams would be called in and there would be general panic across the entire country :P

Diamond Matrix : Wouldn’t people b screaming or running away or the secret service running up to him or regan running away. That sound is not a gun

Sniper Logic : Sure, we still had problems then. Still do, always will. But he helped us laugh at them. We can’t laugh anymore. That’s a big loss.

weetikissa : It was probably planned. The guy was an actor after all. He did it more than once. Just look it up.

tweezerjam34 : I wish our current "president" were 1% this cool 😎

keifer : Reagan is the only Republican i like so far lmao
