WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Hillary Clinton poked fun at Donald Trump on Tuesday morning for complaining about his microphone after the first presidential debate.

“Anybody who complained about the microphone is not having a good night,” Clinton told reporters in a brief question-and-answer session at the back of her plane before taking off for a rally in Raleigh, N.C.

Monday night, Trump entered the spin room at Hofstra University after a tough first debate and complained that his mic had been “defective.” He mused whether that was on purpose. When Clinton’s press corps asked her whether her mic had been OK during the debate, she then made her retort.

The former secretary of state appeared in good spirits the morning after the first debate, saying she had a “great time last night” and was “thrilled” at how it went.

“I’m looking forward to the next debate,” she said.

Clinton also said she wasn’t worried whether Trump would take the advice of Rudy Giuliani, one of his top campaign surrogates, and skip the next two presidential debates.

“Well, I’m going to show up. He gets to decide what he’s going to do,” she said. “If I’m the only person on the stage, you know, I’m the only person on the stage.”

Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta also took a victory lap Tuesday morning, telling reporters that Trump was “thrown off” during the debate and made himself look unattractive to voters by interrupting Clinton. “I think his constant interruption of her probably was reminiscent of the way a lot of women feel about bullies in their lives, and I thought it was kind of unbecoming and he couldn’t stop himself,” Podesta said.
