“He finally said hello to me,” Warren exclaims in an interview for Chelsea Handler’s Netflix talk show, “Chelsea,” streaming Friday.

“I said hello to him first, and he finally said hello back,” Warren added. “The first few times I said hello to him, he didn’t even say hello back,” she added.

Warren told The Boston Globe last month that McConnell had repeatedly brushed her off after a now-infamous incident months ago.

McConnell defended the move, saying Warren had “impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama” after a warning.

“Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech,” McConnell said. “She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

McConnell's comments quickly became a rallying cry for Warren's supporters.

When Handler asked if McConnell apologized, Warren quickly replied, “Oh please — nothing like that.”

McConnell’s office had disputed Warren’s account of any exchanges between the pair, calling it inaccurate. “They have greeted each other,” a McConnell spokeswoman told the Globe in April.

“This really isn’t about me,” Warren told Handler in the sit-down with the comedian. “I felt like this was about every woman in America who has been told loud and clear 'sit down and shut up.' And women who’ve just said, ‘I’ve had it — I’m not doing this anymore.’”
