Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at a Clinton Foundation event on Saturday where she complained about people spreading misinformation about her as she delivered some misinformation of her own.
The event, which commemorated the 25th anniversary of Bill’s victory in the 1992 presidential election, featured both Clintons and their former campaign manager, James Carville.
Hillary blamed Fox News and other news outlets for many of both her and her husband’s problems and complained that right-leaning websites were responsible for spreading misinformation and alternative facts — echoing her mid-1990s claim that a “vast right wing conspiracy” was involved in destroying the Clintons’ reputations.
Hillary spoke about how difficult the process was to obtain peace in Northern Ireland during Bill’s first term and she bragged about Bill’s ability to stay off Twitter and get the work done.
“There was nothing fast and easy about it,” Hillary said. “He didn’t Tweet about it, he got to work about it and he actually got it done.”
Bill Clinton served as president of the United States from 1993 to 2001. Twitter was not created until 2006. Many in the first wave of Twitter users didn’t sign onto the platform until early 2007, nearly a decade after Clinton left office.
Twitter quickly lit up the two-time failed presidential candidate for her misleading statement.
