DOVER, N.H. -- Apparently, even Hillary Clinton gets calls from telemarketers. (And yes, just like the rest of us, she can’t stand them).

During a town hall at the Dover City Hall on Thursday, Clinton commiserated about telemarketing scams with a voter who stood up to ask what the Democratic presidential candidate could do to stop them.

“It’s really annoying. It's really annoying. I know,” Clinton said. “I mean, we have the same issue at home. It's really so annoying when you've told somebody ‘I'm not interested, please don't call me,’ and they just kind of go through the cycle and they call you again and call you again, and all the rest of it.”

The voter told Clinton that she was getting robocalls up to 20 times a day, despite putting her number on the national “Do Not Call” list, and was desperate for some help.

“I've tried everything,” the woman said. “Short of me changing my phone number that everybody knows. I really don't want to do that. We have elderly, we have sick relatives, we have children that need to reach us, and this phone is constantly bouncing across the country.”

Clinton, who said she had never before been asked about telemarketing, assured the woman she would look into it.

“I don’t know the answer, but I will try to find out if there is an answer,” Clinton said.

Even so, the image of Clinton answering a telemarketing call over and over in her Chappaqua, New York, apparently left an impression.

Here’s how we imagine Clinton will respond next time they call:
