“I think that’s sexist,” she said, “I think it’s preposterous. I think her message is angry because the middle class is angry and she’s tapping into something they feel, and also she is extremely nice when she was talking to people about this as well.”

“He’s the third richest man in the world and men can sit there and say don’t be angry to women and, quite frankly, they’re allowed to be as angry if they want and slam tables if they need to to get their point across effectively. Elizabeth Warren, whenever she gets a little bit upset and talks about how people in America in this day and age… they’re not getting a fair shot, and she gets heated about it and passionate about it, she gets a standing ovation. So I think think Warren Buffett is the only person with a problem with her anger.”

But her co-host Joe Scarborough wasn’t buying it. “So whenever you tell me not to get angry, I can accuse you of being a sexist?” (VIDEO: Morning Joe Dishonestly Attacks GOP Congressman With Edited Debate Clip)

“You attack me for being angry!” he said.

“No, I attack you sometimes for interrupting and being a little bit of a, you know… you can be a little ham-fisted sometimes,” she responded. “But you mean well.”
