Last week, when Republicans held their convention, when speakers mention pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the GOP delegates in attendance frequently chanted “Lock her up!” in reference to the email scandal that has been plaguing her for moths. Democrats who support Bernie Sanders have also made similiar chants.

What did Clinton think of of them? Here’s a recent interview with WKMG (CBS 6 Orlando):

SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

Pelley: Madam secretary, did you hear the Republican convention chanting, “Lock her up?” Lock her up, lock her up, lock her up!

Clinton: Well, I didn’t hear it, because I wasn’t watching. But I certainly heard about it, yes.

Pelley: Did you feel threatened by that?

Clinton: No, I felt sad.

Pelley: Sad?

Clinton: It felt very sad, Scott. I mean, I-I don’t know what their convention was about, other than criticizing me. I seem to be the only unifying theme that they had. There was no positive agenda. It was a very dark, divisive campaign. And the people who were speaking were painting a picture of our country that I did not recognize. You know, negative, scapegoating, fear, bigotry, smears. I just was so I was saddened by it.
