Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Thursday that the White House press secretary’s comment about his “fake” hair was “disgusting.”

Josh Earnest railed against Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims earlier this week and said that such a comment “disqualifies” the real estate mogul from the presidency.

“The Trump campaign for months now has had a dustbin of history-like quality to it, from the vacuous sloganeering to the outright lies to even the fake hair—the whole carnival barker routine we’ve seen for some time now,” Earnest said.

Trump responded to the remark during a phone interview with “Fox & Friends.”

“Isn’t that disgusting for a presidential representative to make that comment?” Trump said. “I assume he was joking, but for a presidential person representing us in such tough times — we have terrorism and all of the problems — for him to make that comment, I thought it was so ridiculous.”
