Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) wasted no time confronting Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) over his denial of alleged sexist remarks immediately after Tuesday night’s debate concluded in Iowa.
“I think you called me a liar on national TV,” she said, also rejecting Sanders’ attempt at a handshake. The Vermont senator immediately squashed the issue, however, and said they should postpone the discussion regarding him allegedly telling Warren he does not believe a female candidate could beat US President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

Businessman Tom Steyer clearly wanted no part of the beef and delivered a brief and awkward greeting to Sanders before the senator exited the stage.
