Biden urges senators to have 'courage' for impeachment trial MORE asked Delaney about whether Warren’s wealth tax was a fair funding source for child care and education, prompting Warren to giddily rub her hands together.

“Your estimated net worth is more than $65 million. That would make you subject to Sen. Warren’s proposed wealth tax on the assets of the richest 75,000 homes, households or so in the United States,” Lemon said to Delaney. “Do you think Senator Warren’s wealth tax is a fair way to fund child care and education?”

Warren’s “wealth tax hand rub” was quickly turned into a gif on social media that’s been shared thousands of times, with users applauding the senator for her reaction.


“She did that in a perfectly light-hearted way. Like she's got Boardwalk with a hotel, and Delaney just landed on it,” one user tweeted.

“Yes hello do you have the @ewarren wealth tax hand cream I'll take 3 cases please and thank you,” another joked.

“Warren literally rubbed her hands w/ glee when Don Lemon pointed out that Delaney would be subject to her wealth tax,” a reporter tweeted. “Warren seemed to want to try to go in for the kill on Delaney and the wealth tax but moderators switch to student loan debt.” 

The second set of 2020 Democrats will take the debate stage in Detroit Wednesday night.
