In Trump’s new America, hatred and racism are the new thing. Being politically correct is out. So is behaving like a decent human being, apparently.
Carl Paladino is a New York real estate developer who served as the New York co-chairman for Donald Trump’s campaign. He is also a giant asshole.
On Friday, Paladino made a vile and blatantly racist attack on the First Lady. He also said that he hopes President Obama dies in 2017.
He made the disgusting comments to the New York arts publication Artvoice.
The Trump surrogate was asked the question, “What would you most like to happen in 2017?”
“Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Her[e]ford. 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.”
Then Trump’s boy was asked, “What would you like to see go in 2017?” He answered in the most disgusting way.
“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.”
Now, I know what you’re thinking right now. No way is this guy for real…he must’ve been joking or something.
On Friday Paladino told The Buffalo News that his comments were, in fact, real. And then he attacked the paper for even asking him about it.
When the paper asked if he actually said these outrageous things he answered, “Of course I did.Tell them all to go f— themselves.”
Then he added a comment directed at one of the paper’s black editors.
“Tell that Rod Wilson I made that comment just for him.” He continued, “Yeah, I’m not politically correct. They asked what I want and I told them.”
And this isn’t the first time Paladino has attacked President Obama. In August he told the New York Observer,
“In the mind of the average American, there is no doubt he is a Muslim. He is not a Christian.”
Unfortunately, Paladino is just one more Trump surrogate in a long line who now feel empowered to be openly racist and hateful. This is where we live now.
