On ABC’s This Week, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Fox News host Greta Van Susteren clashed over Mitt Romney‘s “binders full of women” remark that has garnered vast attention since the second debate. As Wasserman Schultz inserted the comment into her talking points, Van Susteren went after her, noting it’s “insulting.”
“I think someone women may think time’s up,” Van Susteren said, noting that, right or wrong, they may feel Obama’s had his chance for four years.
Wasserman Schultz pointed to Romney’s stance on the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which his campaign has not embraced. She then went on to note that Romney “referred to women as binders and resumes.”
Immediately, Van Susteren interjected. “Women have heard so much worse,” she said. “It’s insulting to women. Women care about jobs.” At that point, the panel turned into lots of disagreeing, overlapping chatter.
Back to the point about equal pay, Wasserman Schultz said there are real numbers behind the argument. “I’m with you on that,” Van Susteren replied. “It was the binders comment. The binders comment was silly.”
