Trump Calls Rep. Wasserman Schultz ‘Crazy and ‘Neurotic’

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump reverted to his derogatory description of political rivals on Monday, calling Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) a “crazy,” and “highly neurotic woman” while reffering to her Jewish name “Deborah.”

During a radio interview on Sirius XM’s “Breitbart News Daily” with Stephen Bannon Monday morning, the Republican presidential frontrunner said, “You have this crazy Wasserman Schultz — Deborah Wasserman Schultz — who is in there, a highly neurotic woman… This is a woman that is a terrible person. I watch her on television. She’s a terrible person.”

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) fired back in an emailed statement to the media. “The Republican front-runner’s misogynistic attacks are sadly representative of the GOP’s outdated approach to women and the issues that affect them and their families,” DNC spokeswoman Kaylie Hanson said. “Whether it’s trying to get between them and their doctor, opposing equal pay for equal work, or using offensive language, the Republican Party is wrong for women.”
