The same liberal media that were appalled by chants of “lock her up” against Hillary Clinton and treated any protest of President Obama like a Klan rally, applauded crowds of bitter liberals chanting “lock him up” during President Trump’s recent public appearances. During both their morning and evening newscasts on Monday, CBS News and NBC News touted crowds that shared their sentiment.
“Now to the World Series where President Trump watched last night's game from a luxury suite at Nationals Park in Washington, where he received what you would call less than a warm welcome from many people in the crowd,” quipped CBS This Morning co-anchor Tony Dokoupil.
After playing a soundbite of the raging crowd of triggered libs, he added: “Fans booed Mr. Trump, as you can hear, and some chanted ‘Lock him up’ when he was announced on the public address system and shown on the big screen.” More than 90 percent of Washington, D.C. voted for Clinton in 2016 so the crowd’s reaction was no surprise, yet they treated like it was an important story.
There was similar touting on NBC’s Today by White House correspondent Kristen Welker.
