Hillary Clinton is pretty sure the sexism used against her in the 2016 election is the stuff of history and that it will be studied in academia for years.

After the NBC commander in chief forum, Hillary spoke to reporters near her plane.

Hillary Clinton: There Will Be PhD Theses About Sexism Against Me Written For Years To Come

Speaking to reporters outside her campaign plane Thursday morning, Hillary Clinton responded to a question about the below tweet from RNC chairman Reince Priebus urging her to “smile” more. Asked if she believes there is a “double standard” in the presidential race for women, she replied: “I’m going to let all of you ponder that last question.”

“I think there will be a lot of PhD theses and popular journalism writing on that subject for years to come,” she said.

“I don’t take my advice and I don’t take anything seriously that comes from the RNC,” Clinton added.

“We were talking about serious issues last night. I know the difference between what we have to do to fix the V.A., what we have to do to take the fight to ISIS than just making political happy talk. And I had a very short window of time in that event last night to convey the seriousness with which I would approach the issues that concern our country.”

She continued, attacking her opponent: “Donald Trump chose to talk about his deep admiration and support for Vladimir Putin. Maybe he did it with a smile, and I guess the RNC would have liked that.”

Here’s the Twitter exchange she had with Reince Priebus:
