“Lock Him Up!” Trump Rally Crowd Puts Twist on an Old Favorite

0

At a rally in Carson City, Nevada on Sunday, one of the classic chants that so upset the libs in 2016 made a comeback…with a new twist. When President Donald Trump addressed the recent New York Post story revealing some very problematic emails on the laptop of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, the crowd immediately went into everyone’s favorite Trump rally chant.

“Did you see what’s happening with Biden? He’s a corrupt politician,” Trump said.

The crowd, caught up in the moment, started a “lock her up” chant – old habits die hard – but Trump paused to correct them: “No…lock him up.”

“Joe Biden,” he continued, “is and always has been a corrupt politician. He always has been. And as far as I’m concerned, the Biden family is a criminal enterprise. It really is.”

The Biden campaign didn’t offer a statement on the chant or Trump’s remarks, so it’s clear that their game is to try and sweep this story under the rug. The last thing they want on voters’ minds heading into the final two weeks of the election is Hunter Biden’s laptop, his job at Burisma, or whatever favors Biden may or may not have done for the energy company when he was serving as Obama’s vice president.

Instead, the Biden campaign jumped on Trump’s mockery of his opponent for saying he should “listen to the scientists.”

“If I listened to the scientists, we would have a country right now that would be in a massive depression,” Trump noted.

“Donald Trump tanked the strong economy he inherited from the Obama-Biden Administration by continually discounting and attacking warnings from the scientific and medical experts working around the clock to save lives,” said Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates. “Now new coronavirus cases are surging and layoffs are rising. If Donald Trump had listened to Joe Biden when he urged him not to trust the Chinese government over his own scientific advisers about this crisis, he wouldn’t be the worst jobs president since 1929.” 

The idea that Donald Trump needs Joe Biden to tell him not to trust the Chinese government is a whole new level of gaslighting.

But as we said, Biden wants the last two weeks of the election to be about absolutely anything but Ukraine. Indeed, we get the feeling that Biden would love to spend the last two weeks hiding in his basement, avoiding the media, and praying that he can just hold on to that national polling lead that the mainstream press insists that he has. We’ll see if that’s enough.
