Michele Bachmann said that she dearly understands the issues Hillary Clinton faces in running for president as a woman.

"I really do have great empathy for what Mrs. Clinton is going through, because the hill that she has to climb on — appearance — it's just a different hill than men have to climb," Bachmann told The Huffington Post in a podcast on Monday. "I'm not whining about it. It's just reality. It is what it is."

Bachmann, a former U.S. representative from Minnesota, ran for the Republican nomination in 2012. She discussed some of the problems she faced in seeking the presidency as a woman.

"I gave this speech and it was just blistering hot and humid — and I was literally just drenched with sweat by the time that I was done," she said. "We had our campaign bus.

"So, we went on the campaign bus," Bachmann continued. "I had to go in and take a shower and start over and do another hair and makeup while we were driving to the next city.

"So, that's another hour."
