Lock Her Up……Lock Him Up!

The chant made famous by those supporters of the president…..

There is a bit of a dispute among people that do not like the president and his antics and lies….

Sunday at the World Series game the president was booed and treated to the chant of “lock him up”…..

The anchors of MSNBC’s Morning Joe thinks it is un-American to chant this….

When you hear Morning Joe and Trump in a sentence together, you probably expect them to be on opposite sides. Not so much this time: The married MSNBC morning show hosts are taking the president’s side, sort of, after he was booed at a World Series game Sunday night. Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Monday morning took issue with the chants of the crowd at Washington, DC’s National Park to “lock him up.” That’s a play, of course, on Trump’s calls to “lock her up” related to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign. “It’s just un-American,” said Scarborough of the chant. “It started with Donald Trump, in fact he’s made it the centerpiece of his campaign rallies.” Added Brzezinski, “We find it sickening when it happens at his rallies.”

Scarborough continued: “Of course it’s sickening. We are Americans and we do not do that. We do not want the world hearing us chant ‘Lock him up’ to this president or to any president. That’s why I’m saying, let’s hope as we move forward maybe this is one less fascist tactic he and his supporters use during chants.” As the Daily Dot reports, the internet did not agree. The site rounds up social media criticism for the pair insisting there was nothing wrong with the chant, and leading Scarborough to respond on Twitter: “So let’s see if I’ve got this straight: When crowds chant ‘Lock her up’ toward Hillary, it is illiberal and anti-American. (I agree). But when crowds chant the same toward Trump, it is suddenly a fulsome exercise of sacred First Amendment rights.” Brzezinski was slightly less staunch in her defense: “While I understand why it happened…And that Trump created this atmosphere, the scene worried me, for exactly that. It is a race to the bottom. Its very difficult not to get caught up. #gohigh.”

That is MoJo’s opinion and now we have someone else to weigh in on this debate…..

President Trump attended Game 5 of the World Series — the first baseball game that he has attended since his swearing in as president of the United States — which was being played between the Houston Astros and the Washington Nationals. In so doing, Trump himself became a target of baseball’s notorious heckling. And that heckling was nothing short of patriotic.

My feeling….what is good for the goose is good for the gander….if he cannot take the ribbing then he should just stay home and watch FOX for they will massage his genitals for him….and make him feel all better.

There was a time when I would have thought this was a stupid idea, booing someone, but in the age of stupid I say…WHY NOT?

In the past I tried to be civil but that did nothing to bring the conversation forward……in an age of BS news and lies and accusations then booing is acceptable…..at least to me.

  1. I have to agree with “mojo”….sadly this “president” has created his own environment and we all must live in it. He needs a good dose of his own medicine though it is sad we are having to sink to the lowest denominator to save our democracy.

  2. I gotta admit, I smiled a bit when I heard about the chant. I wonder how long he sat there and took it or if he could even hear it.

    But I smiled even more when I didn’t hear about one of those “lock him up” chanters getting the tar beaten out of them or escorted out of the stadium. I was afraid the next paragraph in any article that mentioned the chant would include that nugget. But I didn’t see it.

    Hmm… gives me a bit of hope that perhaps some people are getting sick of violent calls to action and just choosing not to respond, or that the “true patriots” are sensing something’s wrong with their version of patriotism at last.
