Podesta, appearing on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” was asked about Trump’s recent comments that if Clinton is elected president, “you’re going to have a country that’s going to hell.”

“I think that if he is a person who thinks he can actually lead this country, it's just shocking what he says — what he said about Ben Carson, what he said on your show this morning deciding that today maybe he feels like he needs to repeal Medicare. So every day is a new day with him,” Podesta said.

Podesta said Trump “just hurls insults across the board.”

“You know, we feel very good about where the campaign is today,” Podesta said. “In most of the national polls we're ahead of him, and I think that the — we feel very good about where we are today in terms of winning the nomination. And I think, you know, kind of moving forward if he's the nominee of the Republican Party, I think that's a matchup that works very well for us, because she's out listening to the American people offering real solutions, talking about the fight she'll fight for them, and he's out, you know, hurling insults.”

“Like I said, I think some people find him entertaining — not me so much,” he added.
