Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign ribbed House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Wednesday over the furor surrounding his House Benghazi committee comments, lamenting the animated backlash that Kevin McCarthy has received in a video released on Twitter.

"Sorry about the mean tweets you’ve been getting, @KevinMcCarthy — been there!" said a tweet from Clinton's official campaign account.

The twist: The Kevin McCarthy in the video is not the Kevin McCarthy you're thinking of. It's regular Iowa voter Kevin McCarthy, a Clinton supporter who happens to share the House majority leader's name and owns the @KevinMcCarthy twitter handle. He has evidently been receiving nonstop hate tweets that were actually directed at the GOP congressman.

Watch the video from the link below:

"I've been getting your tweets lately," regular Iowa voter Kevin McCarthy says on the video, as he begins reading some of the criticisms aloud to viewers. Then House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy flashes on screen: "Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee, what are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping."

Enter regular Iowa voter Kevin McCarthy, who addresses the tweeters: "So, I get why you're mad. I do. This guy, who's probably going to be speaker of the House, just said that the committee that's supposed to be investigating Benghazi is now focusing its attention on Hillary's e-mails, with an eye toward hurting her poll numbers."
