US Democratic debate exchange: Elizabeth Warren told Bernie Sanders he called her a liar on national TV
Elizabeth Warren accused fellow Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders of calling her a liar before a national television audience during a tense, post-debate exchange.
In a confrontation caught on camera after the debate, Senator Warren refused to shake Senator Sanders’ hand, but the audio of their interaction was unable to be heard by the audience.
The Democratic presidential rivals are strong progressives who have steadfastly refused to attack each other for more than a year on the campaign trail.
But that changed yesterday, when Senator Warren said Senator Sanders had told her in a private 2018 meeting that a woman could not be elected president.
