A C-SPAN caller from Connecticut on Monday wanted to “thank” Russia for interfering in the 2016 presidential election “to stop Hillary Clinton.”

“I’ll try not to sound too awful, but, I want to thank the Russians for interfering with our election to stop Hillary Clinton from becoming president,” the woman identified as “Mary Lou” said. “That woman has illusions of grandeur. An so [has] her husband.”

Mary Lou brought up what Bill Clinton—“an accused rapist”—did “sexually with Monica Lewinsky” before blaming Hillary Clinton for “never [doing] anything to stop him from doing that.”

Asked whether Russia is the reason Donald Trump won the election, Mary Lou replied, “Yes, because the Russians interfered.”

“I mean, what would we do with Hillary in that White House?” she asked, before referencing Benghazi and Clinton’s private email server.
