“Hillary For Prison,” a popular tag for Donald Trump’s online supporters, began trending on Twitter early Monday morning.
Well, technically it was a “Hillary For Prision” hashtag that started bouncing around the Interwebs, but there’s a method to the madness.
According to The Wrap, what some viewed as a typo was actually a deliberate effort by Trump supporters to bypass Twitter’s alleged quasi-Orwellian, liberal-leaning censorship of conservatives. (RELTED: Twitter Permanentky Bans Milo Yiannopoulos)

Still, liberals used the hashtag to poke fun at Trump’s base. (RELATED: As The FBI Investigation Reopens, There Is No Better Time To Rep ‘Hillary For Prison’)
Nice to see Trump supporters living up to their name: Uneducated deplorables.

#HillaryForPrision The fact that Trump supporters can’t even spell ‘prison’ correctly sums up the intellectual calibre of this election
