Colbert Audience Chants 'Lock Him up' During Hillary Clinton Spot

By    |   Wednesday, 02 October 2019 08:34 AM

Hillary Clinton, while appearing on Stephen Colbert's late-night show Tuesday with daughter Chelsea, laughed as his audience chanted "lock him up!" after she was asked about the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

The chant started after Colbert commented during the interview on his CBS program that "we learned about the Trump-Ukraine call and the private server. Is it time to, dare I say, 'lock him up?'"

When the audience started chanting, Colbert joked, "I created a monster. I apologize."

The phrase was a twist on the words Trump and his supporters used about Clinton when they were campaigning against each other in the 2016 election.

Clinton, meanwhile, said she agrees with the impeachment inquiry, called for last week in response to a whistleblower's claims that Trump had leveraged military aid to Ukraine in exchange for information about Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden and his son Hunter during a telephone call with the country's president.

"We have started an impeachment inquiry, which will look at the evidence, and I think that's exactly what should be done," Clinton told Colbert. "I believe strongly that this particular incident has had such a huge impact because we've known for a long time that he was a corrupt businessman who cheated people, and we've known that he and his campaign asked for aid from Russia."

Further, the former secretary of state said that to see Trump "in the office of the president, putting his own personal and political interests ahead of the national security of our country, just pierced through whatever confusion or denial people had. At that point, Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi rightly said this is something we have to investigate, and that's what's going on."
