Buffalo, New York, real estate developer, school board member, and former Republican Party official Carl Paladino is catching heat for a series of comments he made against the Obamas. Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of the state, has denounced the comments as racist.

In a Dec. 23 article by local Buffalo publication ArtVoice, Paladino responded to a series of questions about his predictions for 2017.

“What would you most like to happen in 2017?” was the first question asked.

“Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Herford,” Paladino’s response begins. “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 [Jihadi] cell mate mistook her for being a nice person and decapitated her.”

“What would you like to see go away in 2017?” ArtVoice posed as its second question.

“Michelle Obama,” answered Paladino. “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.”

According to Politico, Paladino chaired Trump’s campaign in New York, and was talked as a gubernatorial candidate in 2018.

Governor Cuomo was quick to respond to Paladino’s statements, calling them “racist, ugly and reprehensible.” He continued, “Paladino has a long history of racist and incendiary comments. While most New Yorkers know Mr. Paladino is not to be taken seriously, as his erratic behavior defies any rational analysis and he has no credibility, his words are still jarring.”

Paladino wrote a follow-up for ArtVoice:

It has nothing to do with race. That’s the typical stance of the press when they can’t otherwise defend the acts of the person being attacked.

It’s about two progressive elitist ingrates who have hated their country so badly and destroyed its fabric in so many respects in 8 years. ... And yes, it’s about a little deprecating humor which America lost for a long time.  Merry Christmas and tough luck if you don’t like my answer.
