‘Lock Her Up’ Chants Return To CPAC 15 Months After 2016 Election

NATIONAL HARBOR, MD — More than a year after President Donald Trump won the 2016 election, attendees at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) were still celebrating Hillary Clinton’s loss and hoping for her arrest.

During the final speech on Thursday, the first day of the conference, the crowd broke out into a chant of “Lock her up!” when conservative writer Ben Shapiro said that Clinton would never be president.

“She’s already in a jail of her own making,” Shapiro quipped after the chants waned.

When Trump spoke to the conference last year, the same chant broke out during his speech.
