Clift on RNC Chants To Lock Hillary Up: Not What You Do ‘Unless You Want To Elect An Authoritarian’

On Friday’s “McLaughlin Group,” the Daily Beast’s Eleanor Clift responded to people at the RNC chanting for presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to be locked up by saying that “In a democracy, you do not lock up your political opponents, unless you want to elect an authoritarian who’s going to do that sort of thing.”

Clift said, “If you were sitting in your living room and watching that virtually all white crowd, that is not how America looks today, and screaming ‘lock her up, lock her up,’ about Hillary Clinton. In a democracy, you do not lock up your political opponents, unless you want to elect an authoritarian who’s going to do that sort of thing.”
