Hillary Clinton stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday, where she attempted to clarify her husband’s comments about the “awful legacy” of the last eight years, claiming that former President Bill Clinton was talking about the Republicans in Congress and not Obama.

[dcquiz] Earlier in the week, Bill Clinton said, “If you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that where we were practicing trickle-down economics with no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her.” (VIDEO: Bill Clinton: We Need To Put The ‘Awful Legacy’ Of The Obama Years Behind Us)

The former secretary of state reacted, “It wasn’t [directed at Obama]. It was obviously not. I mean, he nominated President Obama for his second term, and we are both very proud supporters of President Obama. But, what it was, was the recognition that President Obama, who I think doesn’t get the credit he deserves for getting as much done in our country, has faced this implacable wall of hostility from the Republicans.”
