Hillary Clinton said Donald Trump was "an absolute avalanche of falsehoods" after the second presidential debate and referred people to PolitiFact's work.

"PolitiFact said that he was the most untruthful candidate they’d ever evaluated," Clinton said aboard her plane. "And we sort of did the numbers, I think they said he was 70 percent untruthful. And so I think he exceeded that percentage tonight."

Clinton likely was referring to this article, which compared Trump to the other presidential candidates we've checked in 2016, 2012 and 2008.

As of fact-checks published on or before Oct. 9, 2016, 70 percent have received a rating of Mostly False, False or Pants on Fire. You can see the comparison below.
