Trump Impeachment; Hillary Clinton Laughs As Americans, Chant “Lock him up”

“Lock him up,” they said.

As guest of  The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Hillary Clinton breathed a relief to hear President Trumps favorite cliché; “Lock her up” in a reversal.

Instead of “lock her up,” the audience at the Late Night Show gave the hackneyed phrase a small edit.

“Lock him up,” they said.

Colbert prompted it all when he asked asked Clinton, “Is it time to — dare I say — lock him up?” in reference to the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump which launched last week in the House of Representatives.

“I believe strongly that this particular incident has had such a huge impact because we’ve known for a long time that he [Trump] was a corrupt businessman who cheated people, and we’ve known that he and his campaign asked for aid from Russia, we’ve known that,” said Clinton.

“But to see him in the office of the president putting his own personal and political interest ahead of the national security of our country just pierced through whatever confusion or denial people had. And, at that point, Speaker Pelosi rightly said this is something we have to investigate and that’s what’s going on.”
