Brian Kilmeade, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Battle Over Mitt Romney's Bain Career (VIDEO)

Things got heated on Friday morning during an interview between Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the co-hosts of "Fox and Friends."

The interview was hostile from the very beginning when Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade asked if CNN's John King crossed a line at Thursday's GOP debate. Wasserman-Schultz immediately turned the focus of the conversation onto Mitt Romney's role as a "corporate raider" at Bain Capital.

Kilmeade was indignant and grew visibly more frustrated at Wasserman-Schultz. The two took shots at each other after Kilmeade compared Romney's career to that of President Obama's new acting director of the Office of Management and Budget (the latter worked at the consulting firm Bain and Company, not Bain Capital).

Wasserman-Schultz began, "Look, I know this is the apples and oranges network, but at the end of the day, Mitt Romney --"

Kilmeade shot back, "What are you talking about? We're talking about Bain and Bain. There's no apples and oranges!"

They talked over each other for several seconds. Things finally calmed down, though Kilmeade continued to appear tense. One of the co-hosts scoffed off-screen at 3:13. Watch the hostile exchange in the clip above.
