Trump NY campaign chair wishes Obama dead, calls Michelle a male ape who belongs in Africa

Donald Trump’s New York state campaign cochair Carl Paladino went off on a racist rant this week, wishing death upon President Obama, while suggesting that the First Lady is a male ape who belongs in Africa.

Paladino’s comments fit into a larger pattern of normalization of hate and intolerance since Donald Trump arose on the political scene, including Trump appointing an Alt Right -enabling publisher as his top White House strategist.

(The Alt Right is a newish conservative political movement based on white supremacy and ant-Semitism. Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon was until recently a publisher of a premier platform for the Alt Right. This did not stop Trump from picking Bannon for one of the most senior White House posts. Bannon also ran Trump’s campaign.)

Here are Paladino’s comments to Artvoice, and alternative paper, when asked about his wishes for 2017:

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.

Paladino has a history of outrageous comments, including calling gays “dysnfunctional,” telling a Utah delegate that she should be “hung for treason,” and that Mr. Khan doesn’t deserve the title of Gold Star dad because he might be an ISIS sympathizer.

Paladino’s latest comments about President Obama could end up being an incitement to violence, and his comments about First Lady Michelle Obama are flat out racist. The recent “pizzagate” fiasco, where a North Carolina man who follows Republican-generated conspiracy theories opened fire in a restaurant in Washington, DC, shows just how dangerous these kind of incendiary comments really are.

When will Donald Trump show some leadership and rebuke the racism and hatred of the co-chair of his New York campaign?

    Trump is the WORST thing to ever happen to America. He has made people HATE again. He has divided a nation that will take forever to heal and he has done it through his racism, hate, and bigotry. He is a con a crook and sexual pervert that belongs behind bars.

    He has gone off the deep end ever since he started questioning Obama’a birthplace. And now that Obama is THRIVING, he has officially gone mad.

    RECORD unemployment numbers, legalized gay marriage, 5% growth, best year for jobs since 1999, consumer confidence up, Cuba re-opened, gas prices low, health insurance cheaper than ever ($85/month), car insurance cheaper than ever ($25/month from Insurance Panda), the 1% starting to be taxed more… all while republicans bleated about Benghazi took pointless votes to repeal the ACA, and did nothing for anybody except the top one percent.

    Obama Wins. Trump Loses.

    Donald J. Trump – A man who only has money because he’s a vaginal success. (Born into wealth.)

    They are just drumming for a fight. Yelling what are treasonous obscenities, anything to pick a fight.

    They want a fight. They want a civil war.

    I never really realized how utterly racist America was til Barack Obama won the presidency.

    Sticks and Stones. He has just made himself look worse than he could ever make President Obama’s family look. He will never live this down. He will be despised by millions and hopefully feel their wrath just as Trump will.

    Here is hoping that Carl Paladino dies the most painful, miserable and tortured death imaginable.

    He could run “The Voice of America” propaganda machine.

    While the Greeks wrote the book on collective governance they failed to derive a foolproof method of eliminating the flaws in human nature. They demonstrated a proof of concept and that is a case study in how it can work and so far how it always goes wrong. The Greek tragedy has become a never ending sequence of avoidable failure of humans insisting on self destruction.

    I made my own donation last month. John does an excellent job on a variety of important topics.

    Besides. I’m Greek, so I have to support my own.

  • Demosthenes

    When is Carl Paladino going to get a cushy government job under the Donald? He’ll fit right in.

    I just made a small donation to Americablog, nothing more than a symbolic gesture really. But it does come out of the resources I and my family rely on. While the Rise of the tRUMPzees has infuriated me the most troubling development over the past four years has been the withering of Americablog and the silencing of a multitude of commenters. I have followed this blog for over a decade, it has been a valuable source of viewpoints and ideas, seeing that light dim scares me far far more than the pandering of tRUMP and his enablers. John built his blog into a beacon once and I hope that he will be able to replicate that achievement.

    For those who remember what this blog was like please consider giving John a little encouragement, thanks.
