GOP official holds up handcuffs for Clinton during MSNBC interview

Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of North Carolina’s GOP, said he doesn’t think Democrats will turn out to support their presidential nominee.

“She is accused of misdeeds with her emails. She is accused of problems with the Clinton Foundation. People in America don’t trust her. And that’s why Democrats have a depression problem,” he said.
