Donald Trump may still be smarting from last week's CNBC debate, but the current object of his ire is the head of the DNC, the Hill reports. In a Monday morning interview on "Breitbart News Daily," Trump lit into her with the high energy he says differentiates himself from Ben Carson. "You have this crazy … Wasserman Schultz—Deborah Wasserman Schultz—who is in there, a highly neurotic woman," he complained. "This is a woman that is a terrible person. I watch her on television. She's a terrible person." He also noted Hillary Clinton seemed to get all the easy questions during the CNN Democratic debate, touching on criticism of Wasserman Schultz that she's out to help Clinton become president—an accusation Wasserman Schultz denies, per CNN.

"In all fairness, she negotiated a great deal for Hillary because they gave Hillary all softballs," Trump said. "Every ball was a softball." Just a couple of months ago, Trump was caught in a loop ripping into Fox News' Megyn Kelly for the way she moderated the first GOP debate in August—a fact not lost on the DNC. "The Republican front-runner's misogynistic attacks are sadly representative of the GOP's outdated approach to women and the issues that affect them and their families," a committee spokeswoman says in a statement, via the Hill. "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." (The GOP candidates are banding together to demand new debate conditions.)
