Las Vegas Crowd Chants ‘Lock Her Up’ as CNN Tries to Discuss Election

An on-site CNN panel had difficulty on Wednesday discussing the 2016 electoral map and what both presidential candidates should do in their third debate later that night when a crowd in Las Vegas began relentlessly chanting "lock her up" for at least a minute straight.

"Lock her up! Lock her up!" the crowd roared.

The Washington Post‘s Dan Balz tried to talk over them, but due to a faulty microphone, was initially unsuccessful.

"To be more subdued, to be a different Donald Trump," Balz said while discussing what he thinks the Republican nominee should do to garner more support.

"To be a president?" CNN's John King asked.

"Lock her up" has been a popular chant at Donald Trump rallies to reference Hillary Clinton's email and Benghazi scandals that many Trump supporters argue should land her in jail.

The crowd continued chanting and shouting later in the segment.

The CNN exchange took place hours before the third and final presidential debate at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

This is not the first time a crowd chanted "lock her up" aimed at Clinton. Back in July, supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said they started chanting "lock her up" during a breakfast at the Democratic National Convention.
