Interesting exchange.
Seems like Tom Steyer is trying to separate the boxers after the bell for the round went off. But I'm not sure it was a deliberate snub by Warren. It seems more like she wanted to use her hands to make a point, instead of not wanting to shake his hand.
I could be wrong.

Watching this, it sure seemed like a good lip reader could tell you what was said.
Is lip reading still a skill? Football coaches still cover their mouth when they talk so maybe.

I don’t think her point was about coming over for a beer this weekend... whatever she said caught him off guard...

Idiot Democrats are going to lose to the fucking disaster that is sitting in the White house...er, on the golf course again. I'm beginning to think Bloomberg is their only choice to beat him.

Biden is probably their best shot. The moron progressives being stupid enough to sit on their hands and not vote will ensure Trumps success...

I'm afraid Joe is getting senile and will have some ridiculous gaffes during the debates if our disgrace of a "president" doesn't back out...or he will just fail to inspire enough people.

I've never been less optimistic for our nation. These are the days I am thrilled I have no children/grandchildren that will have to live in the country that Trump is on his way to destroying.

Personally I think all the democratic candidates are lackluster. Not much there to be honest.

USA Today report on the Sanders / Warren brouhaha, courtesy of the Detroit Free Press:

Lori Bennett and Bob Walker have turned WLAV from an iconic classic rock station into a ratings boondoggle. Sad.

This might be the only time I agree with Bernie.

Warren is being smarmy about something that happened in 2018.

The clearer audio that was released shows that Pocahontas is not only an opportunist, she is hurting the Democrat party as a whole.

How? And it’s Democratic Party not Democrat Party... Democrat party is used by the right as an insult. It would be like calling your side Republicants... it’s a bad practice and I really do wish people would knock it off... have enough respect to say it correctly... we have respect for you enough not to modify or make fun of the name Republican Party...

CNN wants Warren to win...badly. They would be perfectly happy with Klobuchar, too, and probably wouldn't mind Biden cinching the nomination.

CNN tried to throw Bernie under the bus on Debate Night. I agree with all of the below opinions.

Bernie will cause an automatic Trump victory, that’s probably why. That and Sanders is a little more extreme than Warren.

I think Sanders would cause Trump to win.

Probably Why??? What does that have to with CNN asking extremely leading questions and journalistic integrity?
