Carl Paladino, who served as New York co-chairman for President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign, on Friday said he wants President Obama to die in 2017 and made racist attacks on first lady Michelle Obama.
Paladino, a Buffalo real estate developer, let loose a series of offensive statements about the Obamas in the New York arts publication Artvoice.
The outlet asked Paladino, “What would you most like to happen in 2017?”
His response: “Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Herford. He dies before trial and is buried in a cow pasture next to [senior White House adviser] Valerie Jarrett, who died weeks prior, after being convicted of sedition and treason, when a Jihady cell mate mistook her being a nice person and decapitated her."
Asked "What would you like to see go in 2017?" Paladino attacked the first lady in sexual and racist terms:
“Michelle Obama. I’d like her to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortable in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla.”
Paladino on Friday verified to The Buffalo News that his comments were real, attacking the newspaper for inquiring about them.
