Donald Trump said at a Tuesday rally that Bill Clinton must have “gone through hell last night” because he criticized an aspect of the Affordable Care Act in a Monday speech.

“I’ll bet he went through hell last night,” Trump told a crowd in Prescott Valley, Arizona. “Can you imagine? Can you imagine? Can you imagine what he went through after making that statement?”

As the crowd cheered, Trump continued: “He went through hell. But you know, honestly, there have been many nights when he’s gone through hell with Hillary, in all fairness.”

Speaking at a campaign rally for his wife Hillary Clinton on Monday night, the former President criticized a provision of Obamacare that affects health care consumers who make too much to qualify for subsidies and thus must foot the bill for increasing premiums themselves, calling it “the craziest thing in the world.”

Republicans were quick to hold up those comments as proof that Democrats are turning on Obama’s signature healthcare reform law.
