The chairman of the Republican National Committee on Friday said that the Democratic presidential primary has the same chaos as the GOP's.

“They’re gouging each other’s eyes out,” Reince Priebus said on ABC’s “Good Morning America."

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) on late Thursday said that internal strife is tearing apart the GOP, as it faces a contested convention to pick its standard-bearer in the elections.

“[Voters] look at the Republicans and they’re in a civil war food fight,” she said, according to ABC News. "At the end of their convention, the Republican Party will not be the Republican Party of today, and they will likely be blowing themselves to smithereens.”

Priebus on Friday said that Wasserman Schultz is throwing stones in glass houses, adding that fierce debates are part of the political process.

“Debbie doesn’t really have any room to talk,” he told host George Stephanopoulos. "It isn’t easy, and I’m not trying to claim it is. There is drama.

“[Republicans] need to come together, we need to pick a nominee and we need to put our eye on the prize, which is the White House. We’re having a conversation right now about who that will be.”

“Reince Priebus should be ashamed of himself,” he told The Hill in an exclusive interview in New York. "He should be ashamed of himself because he knows what’s going on.”

Priebus on Friday said that all Republicans must understand and abide by the party’s accepted traditions.

“The system has been around for a long time. It was good enough for [former President] Abraham Lincoln. I think it is good enough for whoever is going to be our nominee."
