DNC: They Both Like Firing People RE: Trump Endorsing Romney

"It really wouldn't be surprising if Donald Trump supports Mitt Romney, because they both like firing people and they've both made millions doing it," Wasserman Schultz said on MSNBC. "Donald Trump is such a cartoon character, an endorsement no matter who he chooses is like Bugs Bunny making an endorsement."

Wasserman Schultz also knocked Romney for comments he made Wednesday in which he said that he was "not concerned about the very poor" because they have a safety net. Romney went on to say he was focusing his efforts on the middle class, and insisted the "not concerned" line was being taken out of context.

"Mitt Romney has consistently demonstrated — and this is one more glimpse into the window of his mind — that he has no concern for people who are struggling, and that includes the middle class," Wasserman Schultz said. "He has absolutely no proposals that would help make sure that we could create jobs and he supports continuing the loopholes that he benefits from in the tax code."

"You can't just say the words 'middle class' and actually get credit for caring about the middle class," Wasserman Schultz said.
