Democratic National Convention: 'LOCK HER UP'

The "LOCK HER UP" chant at the Republican National Convention is rearing its head among the Democrats.

From AP:

Hillary Clinton says the chants of "lock her up" at last week's Republican National Convention made her feel "very sad."

Clinton tells "60 Minutes" in an interview broadcast Sunday that she doesn't know what the GOP convention was about, "other than criticizing me." She says she seems to be "the only unifying theme that they had."

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee says Republicans offered "no positive agenda" and presented "a very dark, divisive campaign."
How does Hillary characterize the Democrats' adoption of the "LOCK HER UP" chant?

Very, very, sad?

From the New York Times:

Things are off to a bit of a rough start at the Democratic National Convention, which, as of Monday morning, appeared to be a festival of booing and criticism directed at Hillary Clinton and soon-to-be former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

On Sunday, around 1,000 Bernie Sanders supporters marched through the streets of Philadelphia calling for Clinton's ouster. Many of them used the same anti-Clinton slogans yelled by attendees of last week's Republican National Convention, including "Lock her up" and "Hillary for prison."

"Bit of a rough start"?

It's a mess.
