If the November 8 presidential election would have turned out differently, there’s a good chance that Carl Paladino may not have ever uttered that Michelle Obama is really a man and that as of January 20, he/she could move to Africa and spend the rest of his/her days living in a cave with a gorilla.
But wait, there’s more.
When the honorary co-chairman of President-elect Donald Trump’s New York campaign was fully expected by apoplectic liberals to be fully repentant, that’s when he really let loose.
The Buffalo developer and city school board member doubled then tripled down on his very politically incorrect critique of the Obamas.
As reported by USA TODAY, in an interview with Buffalo’s alt-media Artweek publication, Paladino specifically said of Michelle Obama;
“I’d like (Michelle Obama) 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.”
With the predictable outrage from the Left, “Paladino’s remarks drew near-immediate backlash from officials and many social-media users in western New York, some of whom called on him to give up his school board seat. Instead, Paladino doubled down, claiming the remarks were meant to be humorous and had ‘nothing to do with race.'”
Furthermore, the former Republican gubernatorial hopeful went on to leave little question as to exactly what his sentiments were;
His lengthy, 527-word statement referred to President Barack Obama as a “lazy ass president” while criticizing him for everything from his handling of the Syrian conflict to his treatment of the military to his opposition to Trump’s presidential campaign.
“And yes, it’s about a little deprecating humor which America lost for a long time,” Paladino said of his Artvoice response. “Merry Christmas and tough luck if you don’t like my answer.”
Paladino’s Artvoice remarks also targeted President Obama, with Paladino saying he hopes the president contracts mad cow disease by having a relationship with cattle.
“He dies before his trial and is buried in a cow pasture next to (Obama adviser) Valerie Jarret (sic), who died weeks prior, after being convicted of sedition and treason, when a Jihadi cell mate mistook her for being a nice person and decapitated her,” Paladino said in response, according to the alt-weekly.
