Will Donald Trump have Hillary Clinton arrested if he is elected in November? His base sure wants it.
With loud chants of “Lock her up! Lock her up!” reverberating through the cavernous arena at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, the delegates displayed for millions of viewers the war cry of the assemblage.
Whenever Trump or Chris Christie or anyone else among the second and third-string speakers on stage called the Democratic Party nominee out for alleged “crimes”, the chant would go up.
It wasn’t easy watching Trump’s speech last night from Ohio. But I forced myself to do it. My housemates all took cover as the convention blared from the living-room widescreen.
The spectacle Trump and his party put on for 4 days culminated in his acceptance speech, one that lasted for 75 minutes, and it had been touted as The Donald’s opportunity to show the nation what he really stood for and why independents – and even Bernie supporters, and “millions of Democrats” should cast their November ballots for him.
It was very surreal watching as the billionaire anti-establishment populist pivoted to become the billionaire law and order candidate.
