Donald Trump thinks DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a 'highly neurotic woman'

Donald Trump has made it clear he "loves women," even as he publicly slams them. Take Fox's Megyn Kelly — Trump strongly suggested her menstrual cycle affected her questions to candidates in an August presidential debate.

He took on a new female target Monday in a radio interview with Sirius XM's Breitbart News Daily. In discussing his confidence in Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus' ability to negotiate TV deals for debates (though Trump suggested he'd do better), the real estate mogul compared him to Priebus' Democratic counterpart, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.).

The Republican presidential hopeful called the Democratic National Committee chairwoman "crazy" and a "highly neurotic woman," adding that he felt her debate deals favor the party's 2016 frontrunner, Hillary Clinton.

"This is a woman that is a terrible person. I watch her on television. She's a terrible person," Trump continued. "And in all fairness, she negotiated a great deal for Hillary because they gave Hillary all softballs."

The Democratic National Committee was quick to fire back, telling Politico that Trump's "misogynistic attacks" are a sign the Republican Party is "wrong for women." Listen to his full interview below. Julie Kliegman
