Hillary Clinton went deep into the archives, quoting another former first lady to try to prove her point that Donald Trump doesn't have the temperament to be commander-in-chief.

"I can't put it any better than Jackie Kennedy did after the Cuban Missile Crisis," Clinton said.

Clinton quoted Kennedy on what would have been her 87th birthday.
