Carl Paladino is a big name in New York state politics. Wikipedia describes him as an “American businessman and political activist from Buffalo, New York.” He “ran for Governor of New York in the 2010 election [and] pulled off an upset by winning the Republican primary over Rick Lazio, but lost in a landslide to Democrat Andrew Cuomo in the general election, 63% to 33%.”
He currently sits on the Buffalo Public School Board and served as Co-chair for the Trump campaign in New York.
While one expects colorful, sometimes offensive things to come from local political figures, Paladino crossed some lines when Artvoice, a New York alternative weekly newspaper, asked 42 New Yorker’s for their 2017 wish lists.
Here’s what Paladino wished for:
Artvoice: What would you most like to happen in 2017?
Carl Paladino: Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Herford. 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.
Artvoice: What would you most like to see go in 2017?
Carl Paladino: Michelle Obama. 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.
When the Buffalo News asked Paladino to confirm these remarks, he said “Of course I did. Tell them all to go f— themselves.”
