Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was met by protesters in New York City who yelled “Lock her up!” as she arrived in Manhattan Thursday.
Clinton received the hostile welcome from protesters outside the Sheraton Hotel, where she will speak at the Democratic party 2022 State Nominating Convention.
In footage documenting her arrival, protesters can be heard yelling, “Lock her up,” as some waved Canadian flags and carried signs reading, “Evil Killery,” and, “Bolsheviks Go Home.”
Addressing Clinton’s role as speaker, an unnamed Democrat told CNBC last week Biden’s unpopularity is one reason Hillary was selected.
“She’s beloved by the mainstream members of the Democratic Party and her popularity is likely higher than that of President Biden. It’s good for her because it keeps her relevant and her appearance is likely meant to galvanize the party and the audience,” the person said.
The “lock her up” chant, popularized during the 2016 presidential campaign, is seeing a comeback in the wake of bombshell allegations contained in a recent court filing by Special Counsel John Durham, which claim a Democrat tech executive spied on President-elect Donald Trump and the Executive Office in the White House on behalf of the Clinton campaign.
Meanwhile, Clinton dismissed Durham’s ongoing criminal investigation Wednesday claiming it’s a “fake scandal” devised by Trump and Fox News, and insisted her campaign “did not” spy on Trump.
Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones. So it's a day that ends in Y.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) February 16, 2022
The more his misdeeds are exposed, the more they lie.
For those interested in reality, here's a good debunking of their latest nonsense.https://t.co/iYY8Uxuogx
It remains to be seen whether Clinton will attempt a third presidential run.
