Hillary Clinton, President Donald Trump’s former challenger, congratulated Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) for what she described as a “masterful” performance at Wednesday evening’s vice presidential debate, adding that the vice presidential hopeful “swatted away the lies with ease.”
“Congratulations to @kamalaharris for a masterful debate performance,” Clinton said on Thursday.
“She swatted away the lies with ease,” she continued, a likely play on words referencing the fly that distracted many during a portion of the debate.
Clinton then urged Americans to “join this winning team.” She did not divulge which “lies” she believes Harris beat back:
Congratulations to @kamalaharris for a masterful debate performance.
She swatted away the lies with ease.

The failed Trump challenger spoke to Harris days before the debate, warning her that Pence would likely try to “diminish” her “as a woman.”
