CNN's live feed captured audio of a woman talking about throwing her shoe.

Pope Francis' visit to Washington, D.C., has caused quite the stir the past few days as thousands of people gather to see him. Just before his address to Congress, CNN ran a live feed outside the House chamber in the Capitol and caught a conversation about shoe-throwing.

During the newscast, a woman can be overheard saying she wants to "take [her] shoe off and throw it at his head." It is unclear exactly who she is referring to, whether it is Pope Francis, a member of Congress or someone else. 

Pope Francis had not entered the chamber when she made her shoe comment.
