Kellyanne Conway, senior adviser to President-elect Donald Trump, deemed former president Bill Clinton an “angry white male” on Tuesday evening for his recent attacks against the incoming Republican leader.

After blaming FBI Director James Comey, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Russian hackers and “angry white men” (Trump supporters) for costing his wife Hillary the election last month, Conway said Bill should know better.

“Bill Clinton sounds like in that case a Trump voter these days. He seems pretty angry white male and that’s too bad,” Conway told Fox News’ “Hannity.” “He’s a former president, we have enormous respect for him and his legacy as it were, but we also have to point out that Donald Trump had a very broad coalition when he ran the tables among the same kind of democratic union households that Bill Clinton won and Hillary Clinton lost.”

While speaking to a crowd in South Carolina earlier this week, Bill Clinton said, “[Trump] doesn’t know much” but “one thing he does know is how to get angry white men to vote for him.”

Clinton also said Trump had called him following the election to accept the former president’s congratulations. On Tuesday, Trump took to Twitter to set the record straight and Clinton responded that Trump was correct. The Democrat had called the Republican and not the other way around.
