Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, who some people are considering to be the new frontrunner in the primary race, is at the center of some speculation after she was admitting there was something she could not say in a post-debate interview.
After Warren squared off with 11 other Democratic candidates on the stage in Ohio for the fourth presidential debate Tuesday evening, several of the candidates hung around and met with various mainstream media outlets for post-debate interviews.
Twitchy reports CNN hosted the debate and scored an interview with Warren who, after returning from a commercial break, was caught quickly telling CNN host Jake Tapper that there was something that she was not able to say.
“I can’t say that,” Warren can be obviously heard saying in the hot mic moment.

The comment immediately raised some speculation online.
What could Warren not say? Here’s how some people responded:
@ewarren "I lied and said I was an Native American to get an advantage but…" "I can't say that"

Warren was clearly being told what to say by the commentator.
Extremely controlling media?
Say what we tell you to say? #DemocraticDebate

That she'll have more flexibility after the election. (Feels like Deja Vu)
