‘Lock her Up’: Christie raises hell at Republican convention over Clinton
All through his anti-Hillary speech, Christie has been encouraging the crowds to chant “Guilty” and “Lock her up”.
Despite losing a battle for Trump’s love and the next vice-president spot, Christie took to the stage with a lengthy speech to smear Hillary Clinton. Widely cheered by Trump’s supporters at the Cleveland arena, his address failed to achieve the same effect on Twitter.

… and making fun of him for bringing back America’s Salem Witch Trials of the late 1600s.
I think I may be a time traveler... Am I watching The RNC or is this Chris Christie's version of The Salem Witch Trials? Will they hang her?— Angela Barber (@angelapbarber) July 20, 2016
Am I really watching Chris Christie leading a witch hunt? I thought we left those behind hundreds of years ago... #RNCinCLE— Steve Watson (@reservoirpastor) July 20, 2016
However, in the Twitter-verse from the other side of the screen some found it scary.

@maddow Call out Chris Christie for his "guilty" witch hunt speech! Too scary to hear the crowd yelling to lock her up. Stand for sanity.— Cedar Koons (@crkoons) July 20, 2016
Others suggested that he might need to see a specialist.
As of Hillary Clinton, she had the prefect comeback to remind Christie of his own blemishes on his reputation.
Chris Christie, who's had 4 aides/appointees indicted over sprawling corruption scandal, grins as crowds chant "lock her up". Extraordinary— Jon Swaine (@jonswaine) July 20, 2016
