— -- The day after Donald Trump asked an audience member to prove his hair is real, Hillary Clinton brought up the topic in her speech to top Democrats today.

“A lot of people have said a lot of things about my hair over the years, so I do kind of know what Donald is going through,” she said to laughs from Democratic leaders at their summer meeting in Minneapolis.

"If anyone wonders if mine is real, here’s the answer. The hair is real. The color isn't," the former Secretary of State said to more laughs. "Come to think of it, I wonder if that’s true for Donald too,” she wondered.

Trump called an audience member up on stage Thursday in South Carolina to perform an “inspection” into whether he was wearing a toupee. The woman confirmed the hair was real.

Clinton continued to hit the Republicans throughout her speech in Minneapolis, where all the Democratic candidates but Jim Webb and potential candidate Vice President Joe Biden are speaking. "The party of Lincoln has become the party of Trump,” she said.

She mentioned gun violence promising to enact gun control measures if she becomes president stressing that she won't "sit by while more good people die across America."

She also brought up women's health issues saying she knows her GOP opponents accuse of "playing the gender card."

“Well, if calling for equal pay and paid leave and women’s health is playing the gender card: deal me in," she said.
