Michael Moore Slams Warren For Sticking 'A Knife In Bernie's Back'
Liberal filmmaker defends his socialist 2020 candidate
During Tuesday night's debate, Sanders was asked by the debate moderator about reports claiming he believed a woman couldn't win the presidency ahead of their presidential runs.
But the Vermont senator denied the charge while Warren declared the reporting was correct after having initially declining to comment.
"Elizabeth & Bernie have appeared in my films," Moore said.
"I love them both. Why Elizabeth chose to stick a knife in Bernie’s back is beyond me," he asked.
"At a time when job #1 is to remove Trump, how did this help?" Moore continued.
Moore later elaborated on how he was "paralyzed" when he first heard about CNN's report and slammed Warren's staff for making such a leak during his latest Podcast installment titled "The Sad Downfall of Elizabeth Warren,"
Moore also said the claim made against Sanders was a "malicious lie."

The filmmaker expressed doubt that Warren really considers herself a "capitalist," last year.
Moore also remarked on "Real Time with Bill Maher," after the host suggested, "capitalism plus" was a better term than "socialism" for Warren's platform.
"Elizabeth Warren says she's a capitalist," Maher said to Moore.
"Are you not OK with Elizabeth Warren not being far enough for the left?"
"I'm not so sure she believes that," Moore responded.
"So she's a liar?," Maher reacted, joking that his next film would be titled, "Warren is a Liar: Michael Moore."
"No, no," Moore clarified.
"She's taking a cue from you, which is you've got to tone it down because people are gonna be nervous."
