Making light of a major campaign embarrassment, Hillary Clinton quipped to Jay Leno last night that she almost missed the show due to sniper fire, USA Today reports. “I was worried I wasn’t going to make it. I was pinned down by sniper fire at the Burbank airport,” Clinton joshed, making fun of her now-famous "misstatement" that she once dodged sniper fire on a visit to Bosnia.
Clinton reiterated to Leno that she hadn't accurately recalled what happened, adding: "Obviously, I had a lapse." She also conceded that husband Bill "gets carried away sometimes." The candidate walked on stage to the theme from Rocky, a reference she's been playing up while campaigning in Pennsylvania.
