Hilarious memes send up moment Biden reminded Warren during debate that he once wrangled votes to pass one of her bills only for her to respond: 'Thanks, Obama'

Senator Elizabeth Warren has been hailed on social media for her veiled 'Obama' jab at former Vice President Joe Biden during the Democratic debate.
Things got fiery between the two Democratic candidates towards the end of the fourth debate in Ohio on Tuesday night as the two compared achievements and traded barbs.   
Biden had been arguing that he was the only Democratic presidential candidate with major accomplishments as he argued that his achievements made him best prepared to take office.

Asked if the ideas of Senators Bernie Sanders or Warren could defeat President Donald Trump, Biden told the debate audience that he was 'the only one on this stage who's gotten anything really big done'.  
In response, Warren noted her role in the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that she said she fought to create. 
'So you started this question with how you got something done. You know, following the financial crash of 2008, I had an idea for a consumer agency that would keep giant banks from cheating people... The big banks fought us. The Republicans fought us. Some of the Democrats fought us,' Warren said.  
'But we got that agency passed into law. It has now forced big banks to return more than $12 billion directly to people they cheated. I served in the Obama administration. I know what we can do by executive authority, and I will use it.' 
Biden responded by saying: 'I agreed with the great job she did and I went on the floor and got you votes. I got votes for that bill. I convinced people to vote for it, so let’s get those things straight too.'
Warren paused briefly before firing back and thanking President Obama. 
'I am deeply grateful to President Obama, who fought so hard to make sure that agency was passed into law, and I am deeply grateful to every single person who fought for it and who helped pass it into law,' she said. 
Her jab warranted a laugh from Biden before he interrupted her to say: 'You did a hell of a job in your job'.
It also prompted several hilarious responses and memes on social media from those watching at home.
