LOS ANGELES (AP) – Hillary Rodham Clinton says she’s often in a “state of disbelief” from what she hears from some of her 2016 presidential rivals.

Speaking in Los Angeles Thursday, where she met with home health-care workers, Clinton said she often doesn’t understand statements from other candidates that oppose policies that would improve conditions and pay for those workers.

She said: “I don’t know what world they live in.” Clinton said she finds herself asking: “They said what?”

The front-runner for the Democratic nomination never mentioned any rival candidates by name, although her remarks came on the night of the first Republican presidential debate.

She said: “It’s truly amazing to me. I’m constantly in a state of disbelief.”
