At the start of the Democratic National Convention on Monday when chair Marcia Fudge mentioned Hillary Clinton’s name, the crowd promptly booed.
The booing of Clinton’s name at the start of the convention wasn’t the only instance of booing of the Democratic nominee. Earlier in the day, former Democratic National Committee chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was jeered during her speech to the Florida delegation. (RELATED: Wasserman Schultz Shouted Down At Florida Rally Over DNC Email Scandal)
Then later Bernie Sanders was booed after he said, “We have got to elect Hillary Clinton” president. (RELATED: Sanders Booed After Saying ‘We Have Got To Elect Hillary Clinton’ [VIDEO])

Some Bernie delegates do a hand gesture where they knock their wrists together. Delegate tells me that’s a symbol for “lock her up”
