January 14, 2020 - Warren Confronts Sanders Post-Debate, Yielding Backlash from Sanders Supporters

Upon the conclusion of the sixth Democratic presidential debate, Warren approaches Sanders – who had during the debate denied that he previously told Warren that a woman could not win the presidency in 2020 – and says, “I think you called me a liar on national TV.” Sanders first responds, “Let’s not do this right now,” but adds, “You called me a liar” before walking away. After the debate, Sanders takes the lead in a CNN national poll for the first time ever and earns a record number of small-dollar donations to his campaign, suggesting that being accused of sexism did not appear to hurt him. In addition, Sanders supporters take to social media to attack Warren, using the snake emoji to symbolize her betrayal.
