    She struggled to name any foreign policy accomplishments by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State in a clip that went viral (2016).
    She came to national attention mainly after President Trump - angry over her support for impeachment - jokingly suggested that her husband might be 'looking up' (i.e. from Hell) while speaking at a rally (2019).

    She took the high road after Trump's attack on her late husband, saying: 'It’s time to put politics aside on these kind of shots. I try to be respectful of everybody. I’ve never taken a personal shot at this president. I think his family is off-limits [and] my family is still hurting ... I don't want to get into this tit-for-tat.'
