Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that her loss to Donald Trump might suggest that Democrats have to start learning how to twist the truth if they're going to start winning elections.
At a tech conference in California, Clinton said Trump's team made an "enormous investment in falsehoods, fake news, call it what you will."
When a host suggested Trump invested in lies, she said, "Lies, that's a good word too."
"The other side was using content that was just flat-out false and delivering it in a very personalized way, both above the radar screen and below," Clinton said.
She said her team did not "engage in false content."
"We may have tried to put every piece of information in the best possible light and explanations, but we weren't in the same category as the other side," she said.
When the host congratulated her on choosing not to lie, Clinton seemed to hesitate. "Well ..." she said.
The host then joked that Clinton appeared to be rethinking that strategy. Clinton said she was not, but said future candidates might.
"I'm not rethinking it, but everybody else better rethink it, because we have to figure out how to combat this," she said.
