While speaking at campaign rally for Hillary Clinton in Cincinnati, Ohio Monday, the former president said he thought attacks from conservatives on the Clinton Foundation were “funny.”

“They even went after my foundation last week,” Clinton told the crowd at the AFL-CIO picnic. “Now that was really funny. I was sort of Robin Hood, except I didn’t rob anybody.” (RELATED: Clint Eastwood On Hillary Clinton: ‘It’s A Tough Voice To Listen To For Four Years’)

“I just asked people with money to give it to people who didn’t have money.”

Jason Miller —  Donald Trump’s senior communications adviser — told The Hill there was “nothing funny about the growing evidence of corruption and conflicts of interest between the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s State Department.” (RELATED: Chelsea Clinton To Stay On At Clinton Foundation If Hillary Wins)

“The fact that a Hillary Clinton presidency would be compromised by tens of millions of dollars in foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation is no laughing matter either – it is downright terrifying,” Miller said.

Chelsea Clinton will reportedly stay on board at the Clinton Foundation if her mother becomes president, but Bill Clinton has said he will resign from the board if she wins, along with stopping foreign or corporate donations.
