Whether you watched it happened live or saw it on Twitter hours later, just about everyone has seen the now viral clip of presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren completely and utterly annihilating fellow candidate Mike Bloomberg at the Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas, Nevada last Wednesday. If you don’t remember it, here’s a little refresher:
In the clip, Warren cites the many times the billionaire candidate made sexist statements against women, specifically quoting the instances in which he referred to women as “fat broads” and “horse faces lesbians.” She went on to explain that the U.S. would be taking a huge risk if it were to replace one arrogant billionaire with another in the 2020 election, stating that it’s high time the nation has a president who actually supports working families. Personally, I’ve watched this clip about 15 times at this point, but Warren didn’t end there. She went on to roast the stop-and-frisk supporting mayor even further, calling on him to release multiple women from the NDAs he forced them to sign. Since, Bloomberg has released only three women from their NDAs, which is suspicious to say the least, but that’s a story for a different time.
Throughout the entirety of her campaign, Elizabeth Warren has not seen nearly as much recognition or media coverage as some of her counterparts. While her supporters have always rallied behind her, her wit, preparedness and candor during debates has been all but overlooked by the masses. That is, until now. It seems that after last Wednesday’s debate, Warren re-lit the flame she needed to be recognized amongst Sen. Sanders, Mayor Buttigeg and Vice President Biden on the debate stage. Warren’s “Bloomberg Roast” had Democrats excitedly posting their thoughts and comments after the debate. And obviously, as is the way of the new millenium, many of the posts people were making took the form of memes.
So, here are 11 memes that surfaced on Twitter in the days after last week’s Dem debate that will have you simultaneously rolling on the floor laughing and getting ready to donate to Sen. Warren’s grassroots campaign ASAP:
1. This post that perfectly encapsulates Warren supporter’s frustration when the media neglected to cover her polling results in the past, resulting in #WheresWarren to begin trending on Twitter. (Seriously, scroll down the thread to see just how many times Warren has been erased from polling results on major news outlets):
And for their next trick... corporate media will make Elizabeth Warren completely vanish.— Adam Best (@adamcbest) February 18, 2020
2. This iconic clip of the one and only princess of pop, Britney Spears, which will now forever represent Elizabeth Warren posting up to the debate stage on 2/19/20:

10. This Ashley Nicole Black Tweet, which is not so much a meme but just a very true statement about the kind of candidate Warren is (and the kind of candidate we need to see take on he-who-must-not-be-named).
I don’t know why you guys are surprised. Elizabeth Warren has been taking down rich guys trying to run a grift on you her whole career. This is what she was made for. This is just a taste of how she’s going to handle Trump. https://t.co/05PgJq6vyZ— Ashley Nicole Black (@ashleyn1cole) February 20, 2020
11. And last but not least, my nomination for the best meme on the Internet in 2020 so far. Do with this what you will.

Oh, and one more bonus meme-- a response to the aforementioned Miley Cyrus clip. Because let’s be real, did she lie? No.
