Trump ally unleashes racist and anti-trans rant against Obamas

Donald Trump ally Carl Paladino unrepentant about bigoted rant against Obamas

Hopefully 2016 can end without any more words from Carl Paladino. The New York Republican, and Donald Trump ally, spewed racist, sexist, and anti-trans bigotry against First Lady Michelle Obama.

In a late week interview with Artvoice, a weekly Buffalo newspaper, the New York co-chairman of the president-elect’s campaign was asked what he wanted to see gone in 2017.

‘Michelle Obama,’ the Republican answered, according to the New York Times. ‘I’d like her to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortably in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla,’ he said.

He then turned his ire toward President Barack Obama. He hopes the new year brings Obama ‘mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Hereford.  He dies before his trial and is buried in a cow pasture next to Valerie Jarret, who died weeks prior, after being convicted of sedition and treason, when a Jihady cell mate mistook her for being a nice person and decapitated her.’

Jarret is the president’s senior advisor.

The words of the failed politician (he lost a 2010 bid to be governor of New York) were roundly criticized, even by the president-elect’s team.

‘Carl’s comments are absolutely reprehensible, and they serve no place in our public discourse,’ Jessica Ditto, a spokeswoman for Trump said, according to the New York Times.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who beat the Republican in 2010, issued a statement calling the remarks ‘racist, ugly and reprehensible.’

There are multiple calls for the businessman to step down from his position on the Buffalo School Board.

‘This kind of language does not belong within the context of our communities and our schools,’ Betty A. Rosa, chancellor of the New York State Board of Regents, said in a statement according to the Buffalo News. ‘Being an American demands we respect the office of the President. That’s what we teach our children in New York State as part of our civic learning, and it’s a lesson that Mr. Paladino apparently needs to review.

As for Paladino, he doesn’t see what the fuss is about. He vows not to resign and, in an interview with the New York Times, insisted he’s ‘not politically correct.’ He does not think his words are racist and when asked why he wanted the first lady to live with a gorilla in Africa, offered the following tepid response:

‘What’s wrong with that?’
