Perhaps it was the fact that she gave high-priced, closed-door speeches to Wall Street executives while publicly denouncing them and saying they needed to be ‘reined in.’ Either way, it seems Hillary Clinton has left a bad taste in the mouths of New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) traders.
Upon seeing her concession speech, traders on the floor of the NYSE could be heard booing the Clinton-Kaine ticket. They even engaged in a “lock her up” chant.
Via Business Insider:
Some traders on the New York Stock Exchange floor reportedly booed the defeated presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during her concession speech on Wednesday morning, shouting “loser” and “lock her up.”
Traders reportedly booed Clinton’s vice presidential pick, Tim Kaine, and shouted “lock her up” when he came on stage around 11:35 am Tuesday.
Traders then reportedly booed Clinton herself when she appeared on stage and shouted “liar” as she began to speak.

The day traders weren’t finished there, adding shouts of “ding-dong the witch is dead.”
Loud booing rocked the floor of the storied New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday during Hillary Clinton’s concession speech to President-elect Donald Trump.
Some of the Wall Street traders began chanting “lock her up!,” as Clinton appeared on television screens, urging her millions of disappointed supporters to accept the stunning defeat.
“Ding-dong, the witch is dead,” shouted another floor trader.
Even better, rumors last night of the stock market collapsing allegedly because of Donald Trump’s election were quickly put to rest. CNN described it as the stock market having a “much warmer welcome” for Trump.
“The stock market offered a much warmer welcome on Wednesday for Trump,” the report stated. “Shaking off panic selling that rocked global markets overnight, U.S. stocks opened calmly, avoiding the crash many feared.”
The Dow actually rose as much as 200 points after Clinton conceded.
There you have it liberals – Clinton’s loss and Trump’s win are already paying economic dividends.
