CNN anchor Kate Bolduan whined about the “lock her up” chants directed at Hillary Clinton during the Republican National Convention on Wednesday while expressing doubt that it was the right “message.”
During a segment on CNN’s “At This Hour With Berman and Bolduan,” Bolduan said, “Yesterday’s theme was make America work again. One of the things I think is the most memorable, one of the memorable things that came out of last night though was the chanting from the floor that we heard over and over again of ‘lock her up, lock her up, lock her up.’ Obviously speaking about Hillary Clinton. Do you like that that is the message that came out of last night?”
“I can see why Democrats are upset because it underlines the Republican message that Hillary Clinton is unfit for office,” said Joseph Borelli, a New York City-councilman representing the 51st district. “Primarily because you have director Comey out there, basically chapter and verse indicting her without indicting her.”
“It underscores what Republicans, including Chris Christie last night have been trying to say, trying to make the case. You know, I appreciate, again, Democrats may not like that, but they don’t get to pick what Republicans chant at our convention.
