It’s no secret that supporters of President Trump aren’t big fans of Hillary Clinton, and it really showed when she was announced at his inauguration ceremony earlier today.
The two-time failed presidential candidate showed humility and grace by attending the event, but Trump’s supporters showed no mercy when she arrived at the venue. Reports and video from inside the inauguration revealed that when Hillary’s name was announced, the crowd booes and started chanting “lock her up,” a phrase often chanted at Trump’s campaign speeches.

Apparently she’s no more popular now then she was while campaigning, but then again what does she expect? She spent an entire campaign denigrating and dehumanizing Trump’s supporters, even calling them “deplorable” at one point, so of course they’re not going to give her a warm reception at the inauguration.
As for whether or not she’ll actually be locked up? Well, that remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain; Trump’s nominee for attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has a record of enforcing the law no matter who the accused is, so there’s a good possibility it just may happen.
