‘Lock Her Up’: Jeff Sessions Laughs, Repeats High School Students’ Call For Jailing Hillary Clinton




On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the country’s top law enforcement official, was speaking to a crowd of conservative high school students when a “lock her up!” chant broke out, a chant that Trump supporters used during the 2016 campaign to call for jailing Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

“Lock her up,” Sessions said, laughing as the chants grew louder.

“I heard that a long time over the last campaign,” he told the right-leaning high schoolers attending a four-day conference hosted by the conservative organization Turning Point USA in Washington.


Sessions went on to sharply criticized American universities, saying they were coddling students and creating a “generation of sanctimonious, sensitive, supercilious snowflakes.”
