A familiar chant with a twist broke out among the massive crowd at the Trump rally in Minneapolis last night.
President Trump’s son Eric brought up Hunter Biden’s alleged corruption in the Ukraine, referencing the “lock her up” slogan with Hillary, prompting the crowd to erupt in chants of,
“Lock him up!”
And, boy did they!

Breitbart has more to say:
Eric Trump on Thursday evening ripped into Hunter Biden ahead of President Donald Trump’s re-election rally speech in Minneapolis, prompting attendees to break out into chants of “Lock him up” — a play on the “Lock her up” slogan synonymous with failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“How do you think Joe Biden — how do you think his son is feeling right now after embezzling a lot of money, taking a lot of money, the crookedness? He’s not looking too good either,” Trump said, prompting jeers from the crowd.
One man can then be heard shouting “lock him up,” — seemingly a reference to Hunter Biden, who has faced increased scrutiny over allegations of corruption in China and Ukraine. “Maybe ‘Lock her up,’ goes to ‘Lock him up,” Trump responded to the chant, sparking cheers from attendees. “I like ‘Lock her up’ a little bit more,” Trump added, before thanking the audience member for repurposing the famous anti-Clinton slogan.
The Washington Post also stated:
President Donald Trump’s son Eric is proposing a new chant to be directed at Joe Biden: “Lock him up.”
President Trump has been pushing baseless claims that Biden and his son Hunter traded on the family name to earn millions from governments in Ukraine and China.
Eric Trump warmed up a Minneapolis rally crowd for his father Thursday night. He asked the crowd for an assessment of how Hunter Biden is feeling and suggested that the familiar Trump rally chant of “Lock her up” — directed at Hillary Clinton — become “Lock him up.” The crowd then chanted, “Lock him up, lock him up.”
House Democrats have opened an impeachment inquiry over President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine and his request to that country’s president to investigate Joe Biden.
