Donald Trump Slams Debbie Wasserman Schultz as 'Crazy'

Donald Trump reportedly slammed Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz as “neurotic” and “crazy” in a radio rant.

Appearing on Sirius XM’s “Breitbart News Daily” on Nov. 2, the Republican presidential candidate was asked about the controversy over the recent GOP debate, which was hosted by financial network CNBC.

He declined to criticize Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, but unloaded on Wasserman Schultz, a Jewish congresswoman from south Florida.

“You have this crazy Wasserman Schultz ” Trump said, according to Politico. “(She is) a highly neurotic woman. That woman is a terrible person. I watch her on television. She’s a terrible person.”

Trump went on to accuse Wasserman Schultz of stacking the Democratic debate deck to benefit Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“In all fairness, she negotiated a great deal for Hillary, because they gave Hillary all softballs,” Trump said. “Every ball was a softball, and in fact, even the other candidates weren’t allowed to talk up against her.”
