Hillary Clinton jokes made at the Republican National Convention

Hillary Clinton's email scandal may be over for Democrats, but Republicans at the national convention are not letting it go.

The attorney general recently announced that Clinton would not be charged for using private email servers while she was secretary of state, but that has not changed the opinion of most Republicans. Many still accuse her of deleting some of her emails so they would not be investigated and lying to the public and the FBI.

Clinton has been a major topic in a number of speeches, and some speakers have tried to throw in a little comedy. Here are some of the best, or worst, jokes made about her.

Darryl Glenn, a Republican candidate for Senator in Colorado, told the crowd at the convention that Clinton is not fit to be president. "And we all know she loves her pant suits -- yes, you know it's coming -- but we should send her an email and tell her that she deserves a bright orange jump suit," he said, chuckling.

Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy and his wife, Rachel, began their speech by sharing some of their household rules with the crowd, and the last two were clear jabs at the presumptive Democratic nominee. "Clean your room, no teenage boys in your bedroom, no waking mom and dad up on Saturday mornings, no private servers in the basement, and no lying -- especially to the FBI," they said.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie fired up the crowd Tuesday night when he asked everyone to yell "guilty" or "not guilty" in response to his account of Clinton's actions as secretary of state. Speaking about a symbolic "reset" button that Clinton gave to the Russian foreign minister in 2009, he said, "You know what I think that button should have read? It should have read 'delete.'" "Yeah she's very good at that by the way," he added.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker blamed "liberal Washington insiders" for creating problems in America and said Clinton is the ultimate insider. "If she were any more on the inside, she'd be in prison," he added. Walker also joked that he "wouldn't even give Hillary Clinton the password to [his] iPhone, let alone classified information."

Donald Trump's firstborn didn't hesitate to make a few jokes about his father's opponent. "If Hillary Clinton were elected, she'd be the first president who couldn't pass a basic background check," he said. Later in his speech, he said his father would be "a president who knows we can't simply delete our problems," making a not-so-subtle reference to accusations that Clinton purposefully deleted some of her emails before the investigation.

Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus said Clinton uses politics for her personal gain and added that "she reads ethics rules as carefully as Americans read their junk mail."

West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito criticized Hillary Clinton for her opposition to coal mining, which employs many people in West Virginia. "Now, we shouldn't be surprised by this because Hillary Clinton understands coal miners and blue collar workers about as well as she understands secure email," she said.
