A North Carolina Republican leader pulled out a pair of handcuffs on MSNBC Thursday and said Clinton could be wearing them by Inauguration Day.

Dallas Woodhouse, the executive director of the North Carolina Republican Party, was on MSNBC Thursday defending emails he’d sent about early voting in the state, but he quickly changed the subject. Woodhouse said that there was no “suppression vote problem in North Carolina” but that Democrats had a “depression problem.”

“You know why? It’s very simple their candidate – if elected–could have these on Inauguration Day,” Woodhouse said holding up the pair of handcuffs.

“You’re bringing props for our show here, Dallas?” MSNBC host Hallie Jackson asked. “Is this the kind of rhetoric you want to be saying five days out from an election?”

“You know she is accused of misdeeds with her emails, she is accused of problems with the Clinton Foundation. People in America don’t trust her. That’s why Democrats have a depression problem,” Woodhouse said.
