CNN found the backup audio of Warren / Sanders’ tense exchange at the Democratic Debate

CNN had the backup recording system rolling at the Democratic Debate as it picked up the tense exchange between Bernie Sander and Elizabeth Warren.

Sanders – Warren exchange at Democratic Debate

From CNN:

I think you called me a liar on national TV,” Warren can be heard saying.
“What?” Sanders responded.
“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” she repeated.
“You know, let's not do it right now. If you want to have that discussion, we'll have that discussion,” Sanders said, to which Warren replied, “Anytime.”
“You called me a liar,” Sanders continued. “You told me — all right, let's not do it now.”
After their exchange, fellow Democratic candidate Tom Steyer, who had been standing behind the two senators, can be heard saying, “I don't want to get in the middle. I just want to say hi Bernie.”
A spokesperson for the Sanders campaign declined to comment on the audio. A spokesperson for Warren's campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

There must be a misunderstanding in the context of whatever occurred between these two progressives. But Bernie was saying the right things before many.


I think we should put this one to rest and remember Warren's excellent comment.
