Ann Romney slammed Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz Tuesday for a comment she made earlier this month about Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
Romney was referencing a remark made by Wasserman Schultz in which she likened the Wisconsin governor's record on women's rights to actual physical violence against women.
“Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand,” Wasserman Schultz said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. ”I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality.”
In an interview with Fox News, Romney responded to the comment.
“It's ridiculous, honestly," she told host Neil Cavuto. "I mean I don't think they're getting very far with that, by the way. It's not going to work. I think women are a lot smarter than that."
"And that's kind of offensive to me, to tell you the truth," Romney added. "And Scott Walker is a good guy and he's got a wonderful wife and he, you know, values women. And, you know, that just — that just doesn't fly.”
During the interview, Romney also tackled a wide-array of other topics, including the Islamic State and how MS affects her life, among other things.
Editor's note: Romney called Wasserman Schultz's comment "offensive to me," not "condescending" as originally reported. The story and headline have been corrected.
