Hillary Clinton castigated Donald Trump from her campaign plane Sunday evening for spewing an 'avalanche of falsehoods' at her during their debate.
'I really find it almost unimaginable that someone can stand and just tell a falsehood after a falsehood,' she told reporters traveling with her from St. Louis to New York.
The Democratic White House contender's campaign manager told journalists on the plane that Trump was 'completely incoherent' much of the time and the answers he gave were 'riddled with non-facts, with lies.'
Clinton campaign chairman, John Podesta, deplored Trump for dragging the race into the 'gutter' as he spoke to press from the debate spin room.

The former first lady's aides argued that she wasn't 'rattled' by a forum he held 90 minutes before the debate for women who say they were assaulted by Bill Clinton and the accuser of one of Hillary's former clients.
'She came in with a real sense of purpose to inform the voters in that room and voters across the country what her plans were. This was an attempt by Donald Trump to throw her off, try to distract,' Mook said.
The 'stunt' was distasteful, though, they said and is indicative of the state of Trump's flailing campaign.
'This was a painful moment in their marriage and it was litigated very heavily 20 years ago,' Mook said. 'Hillary is strong, she is steady, that is what people saw in that room, and she is not going to get thrown off on things like this.'
Trump, on the other hand, began to 'unwind' in the forum, the senior Clinton staffer said.
'He is bleeding Republicans at this point, we see dozens of Republican leaders and certainly senators that are backing away from him. I expect in the next few days we will see independent and Republican voters begin to walk away from him absolutely.'
Clinton said she wasn't shocked by the tone of the debate. 'I was surprised by the absolute avalanche of falsehoods,' she said.
Trump attempted to make up lost ground by coming at Clinton with everything he had on her emails, her judgement, her trustworthiness and her character.
He blindsided her team before the debate by broadcasting a meeting with Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick and Paula Jones at which the women deplored Bill for sexually assaulting them.
'Bill Clinton raped me. And Hillary Clinton threatened me,' said Broaddrick, who alleges that Bill forced himself on her when he was running for governor of Arkansas.

Trump promoted the women as he tried to deflect scrutiny from his own charges of sexual misconduct.
A 2005 recording published on Friday by the Washington Post shows a married Trump boasting about his sexual exploits with married and non-consenting women.
'And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything ... Grab them by the p***y. You can do anything,' he says.
Trump said Sunday night, during the debate, that it 'was locker room talk.
'I'm not proud of it. I apologize to my family. To the American people. Certainly I'm not proud of it. But this is locker room talk.'
The billionaire claimed he did not do any of the things he said he did in the tape.
'If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse, mine are words, his was action,' Trump argued. 'This is what he has done to women. There’s never been anybody in the history of politics in this nation that's been so abusive to women.'
Continuing, Trump contended that 'Hillary Clinton attacked those same women and attacked them viciously.
'BILL CLINTON RAPED ME': Juanita Broaddrick (left) appeared alongside Donald Trump to point an accusatory finger at the former president and blame his wife – Trump's opponent Hillary – for cowing her into silence
The former first lady's aides argued that she wasn't 'rattled' by the forum Trump held 90 minutes before the debate for the women
'One of the women, who is a wonderful woman, at 12 years-old, was raped at 12. Her client she represented got him off and she's seen laughing at the girl who was raped. She is here with us tonight, so, don't tell me about words.'
Responding to the declaration in the spin room, Podesta, a chief of staff to Bill in the White House said, 'Trump is desperate. He’s trying to take this race to a place in the gutter, and we’re not going there.'
'I think he wanted to throw her off her game with the stunt that he pulled at the beginning. He clearly didn’t do that, and I think that to the extent that that was his goal I think he failed,' he said, stating later, ‘I think he was trying to rattle her I guess, and she wasn’t rattled.’
Trump surrogate Omarosa Manigault let out a hefty laugh as DailyMail.com asked her about Podesta's indictment.
'Are we talking about the Clintons?' she asked, in disbelief.
One was 'investigated by the FBI, and the other one was impeached. You’re talking gutter? I don’t even know how to respond to the ridiculousness of that.'

Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson spurned the opposing campaign's contention, as well.
'If you're going to run a race on gender issues, then it has to go both ways. You can't talk about one person's actions and not the other and that's what was happening,' she stated.
Pierson said Trump handled the situation well in the debate, in her opinion, apologizing and accepting 'responsibility' for his language.
And she argued that the 70-year-old's 'locker room' talk did not constitute as sexual assault.
'If he had done it, maybe,' she proclaimed.
Manigault said she hadn't spoke to Trump about the lewd commentary she believes is 'inexcusable' and 'indefensible.'
Still, she said he's apologized publicly and that is enough for her.
'I think when you apologize to your wife and your family and they accept your apology, that’s the end of it. You move on. I’ve accepted his apology,' the former Apprentice contestant said.
