Democratic frontrunner Elizabeth Warren was caught on a hot microphone during Tuesday’s presidential debates; mysteriously telling CNN’s Jake Tapper that she “can’t say that” to American voters.
“Oh, I can’t say that” said Warren as the network returned from a commercial break.
Senator Elizabeth Warren continued to solidify her frontrunner-status last month; taking in $24.6 million in fundraising in the 3rd quarter, far more than former Vice President Joe Biden.
“The figure affirms the momentum Warren has appeared to be gaining in recent weeks and months, as polls show her now battling Biden – once the unrivaled front-runner – for the primary lead,” reports Fox News.
“I’m grateful down to my toes for every grassroots supporter who chipped in to help raise $24.6 million in the third fundraising quarter. Together, we’re building a movement that’s going to put power back in the hands of the people,” posted Warren on social media.

A PLAN FOR THAT? Elizabeth Warren Unveils $1 TRILLION Plan to Fight ‘Environmental Racism’
Democratic frontrunner Elizabeth Warren unveiled her latest policy proposal regarding climate change this week; calling for $1.5 trillion in new spending to combat “environmental racism.”
“In 1987, the United Church of Christ’s Commission on Racial Justice commissioned one of the first studies on hazardous waste in communities of color. A few years later – 28 years ago this month – delegates to the First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit adopted 17 principles of environmental justice. But in the years since, the federal government has largely failed to live up to the vision these trailblazing leaders outlined, and to its responsibilities to the communities they represent,” writes Warren.
Justice for communities on the front lines of the climate crisis must be at the core of our response to climate change. Here's my plan for how I'll center environmental justice in the fight to end the climate crisis. https://t.co/agB4llfPRg

“From predominantly black neighborhoods in Detroit to Navajo communities in the southwest to Louisiana’s Cancer Alley, industrial pollution has been concentrated in low-income communities for decades,” she adds. “The Green New Deal will involve deploying trillions of dollars to transform the way we source and use energy. In doing so, the government must prioritize resources to support vulnerable communities and remediate historic injustices.”

BIDEN AT PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE: ‘I Am the Vice President of the United States’
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-filled campaign during Thursday night’s presidential debate; strangely informing the audience he’s the Vice President of the United States.
“The President did the best thing that could be done at the time,” said Biden when asked about President Obama’s immigration policies.”
“How about you?” asked moderator Jorge Ramos.
“I’m the Vice President of the United States,” Biden asserted.
Biden faced tough questions and jabs from his fellow Democratic challengers during Thursday’s debate; including Senator Elizabeth Warren whose poll numbers have risen in recent weeks.
“The 2020 candidate pulled off a rare showing in an Economist/YouGov poll published Wednesday, tying the largely untouchable former Vice President Joe Biden with 26 percent support among registered voters. It marks one of the few polls where Biden is within danger of losing his frontrunner status, and contains a dismal prediction for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.),” reports The Week magazine.
“Biden has only had a few close calls in previous polls, but Warren’s 2020 rise has seemingly been eating away at his support as well as Sanders’. In a late August poll from Monmouth University, Sanders and Warren topped the pool with 20 percent support, and Biden was just behind at 19 percent. In this Economist/YouGov poll, Biden is back up, but so is Warren, both leaving Sanders a full 10 points behind at 16 percent,” adds the website.
