“I am angry and I own it,” read the subject line of a Friday fundraising email from Warren’s campaign.

“Over and over, we are told that women are not allowed to be angry. It makes us unattractive to powerful men who want us to be quiet,” the email read.

Warren’s email referred to backlash toward Biden and another 2020 Democratic candidate, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete ButtigiegPete ButtigiegScaled-back Pride Month poses challenges for fundraising, outreach Biden hopes to pick VP by Aug. 1 It’s as if a Trump operative infiltrated the Democratic primary process MORE, both of whom her supporters say launched attacks on her that were sexist, CNN reported.

Biden has since denied that he went after the fellow front-runner because she’s a woman, telling the network on Friday that “the strong women in my life are angry” but that “has nothing to do with it.”

“It had to do with the fact that it started off and she said, you know, Biden is running in the wrong primary because I disagreed, disagree with her ‘Medicare for All proposal,'” the former vice president said.

Biden in a Medium post on Tuesday responded to Warren’s earlier comments that suggested his reasons for opposing Medicare for All seemed like they were coming from someone “running in the wrong presidential primary,” CNN reports.

Without naming Warren specifically, Biden’s post said “these kinds of attacks are a serious problem” and “reflect an angry unyielding viewpoint that has crept into our politics.”

He added that such an “approach to politics” is “condescending” and “elitist.”
