MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle found herself delighted Friday in the irony of Mike Flynn previously leading a “lock her up” chant at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in 2016.
Ruhle said, “All right, I want to stay on this. The voice I can hear in my head is Mike Flynn leading those ‘lock her up’ chants. I mean, the irony, Mike Flynn himself, he was the one up there–‘lock her up’–standing for a judge today.”
Ruhle is referring to this moment from the last RNC in 2016:
