Not satisfied with the end of the Obama era, or the closing of the Clinton story, or the continued loon strategy of accelerating progressive tactics and strategy which have already demonstrably failed…Carl Palladino shows us the true meaning of ‘humor’, with an Elaine Benes celebration dance in the end zone.
WaPo (among others):
Carl Paladino, a former Republican nominee for governor of New York and an adviser to president-elect Trump, included the death of President Obama and “return” of first lady Michelle Obama to Africa on his list of things he wanted for 2017.
Paladino was responding to a survey by an alternative weekly magazine, Artvoice.
Asked what he would like to happen in 2017, he said he hopes that “Obama catches mad cow disease” and dies after having relations with a Hereford, a type of cow. Asked what he would most like to see go, Paladino responded that Michelle Obama would “return to being male” and be “let loose” in Zimbabwe.
It’s not that often that you find someone you just look at and think, ‘don’t you say an effing thing that means you are on my side, even if I am up against satan’.
Given a chance to explain/recant/walk back his comments this Don Rickles of Buffalo claimed, it was all just ‘old school’ humor …doo dah, doo dah.
This was all done in a magazine called ARTVOICE:
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.
In a statement to The Post, Paladino denied that the comments were racist.
“It has nothing to do with race,” Paladino said. “That’s the typical stance of the press when they can’t otherwise defend the acts of the person being attacked.”
“It’s about 2 progressive elitist ingrates who have hated their country so badly and destroyed its fabric in so many respects in 8 years,” he added.
Reached briefly by phone Friday, Paladino confirmed that he made the comments and that he is currently involved in Trump’s transition efforts.
“I don’t think Mr. Trump particularly cares what I have to say,” Paladino said. “He knows me. I was active with him, and I still am active with him.”
“And that’s it. I’ll say what I feel like saying.”
Not mentioned by WaPo (significantly?) is that Trump FIRED him instantly from any connection with transition, and has hopefully arranged his passage to Ouagoudougou as deputy assistant secretary of comedy communications to the liasion office of Sahel water resources where his old school comedy can be enjoyed at leisure and covered extensively until a transfer to development adviser for amazonian neolithic tribal robotics can be arranged.
