Delegates Given Chants to Counter Sanders Delegates’ Protests

HeadlineJul 29, 2016

Meanwhile, The Guardian’s Ben Jacobs reported the Democratic Party tried to thwart protest chants from the floor by circulating a list of counter chants on Thursday. Clinton delegates were reportedly instructed to chant “U.S.A.” when Sanders delegates chanted “No more war,” and “Hillary” when Sanders delegates chanted “Stop the TPP.” Despite these efforts, the protest chants could still be heard from the floor, although they were largely drowned out for television audiences.
