Former Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb sent out a rare tweet on Tuesday to make fun of former President Bill Clinton’s recent statement that he won the 1992 presidential election in a “landslide.”

“Bill Clinton reminded the media that he won by a “landslide” in the electoral college,” the former Virginia-tweeted senator. “Let’s remember, he won only 43 percent of the popular vote.”

Clinton’s comment came during a Q & A session at an event in New York earlier this month. The former President disputed the notion that Trump, who had College a big lead in the Electoral but lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes, won the election by a landslide.

“Landslide? I have something like 370 electoral votes. It was a landslide,” Clinton said.

Clinton got the plurality of votes in the 1992 election with 43 percent of the vote. The Rest of the votes was shared by then-President George H. W. Bush, 37.4 percent, and independent candidate Ross Perot, who won 18.9 percent.
