Crowd chants ‘lock her up’ at Trump rally in West Virginia

The crowd at President Trump’s West Virginia rally broke into chants of “lock her up” on Tuesday night.

The chants were in response to GOP Senate candidate Patrick Morrissey’s comments on former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, but came just hours after two of Trump’s former allies were found guilty and pleaded guilty to crimes, respectively.

Morrissey criticized Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) for his praise of Clinton, saying that he called her “warm, compassionate, engaging.”

“Can you actually believe that?” Morrissey said, at which point the crowd began the chant.

The crowd also chanted “drain the swamp.”

At the same time, longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen entered a guilty plea for eight charges of bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance law violations. He also told the court that he violated campaign finance law at the direction of a candidate for federal office in order to influence the 2016 election.

As Cohen left the courthouse earlier Tuesday afternoon, people chanted “lock him up.”
