Just hours after a series of explosive devices were sent to prominent Democrats, including the New York residence of Bill and Hillary Clinton, Trump supporters chanted “lock her up” this afternoon at the president’s rally in Wisconsin.
The crowd began the chant after Senate candidate Leah Vukmir mentioned Hillary Clinton’s name, reports NBC News correspondent Peter Alexander. Vukmir did not attempt to discourage the crowd’s chants.

A series of suspicious devices, which included live pipe bombs, were sent to Former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and to CNN’s New York office. Packages were also sent to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (intended for ex-Attorney General Eric Holder), liberal philanthropist George Soros and California Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters.
