Reince Priebus Attacks CNBC Debate Moderators

Better call the waaaambulance!!

Looks like RNC Chair Reince Priebus was none too happy with the moderators following this Wednesday's Republican debate. First he took to Twitter to complain:

Once the debate was over, he made a statement to the media as well:

PRIEBUS: I was proud of our candidates who were standing up to a pretty hostile environment. I was very disappointed in the moderators. I was disappointed in CNBC. You know, I thought maybe they would bring forward a pretty fair forum here tonight, but I think it was one gotcha' question, one personal low blow after the other.

It's almost like they tried to design a Rubix cube for every question to take the worst elements I think what moderators and what the media should bring to the table, and all I can tell you is that while I'm proud of our candidates for pretty much sticking together, I'm very disappointed in the moderators and I'm very disappointed with CNBC.

Can you help us out?
