All Buffalo developer Carl Paladino wants for Christmas is a heaping pile of vitriol. In a survey of Buffalo locals by alternative weekly Artvoice, Paladino said that in 2017 he’d like to see President Obama die of mad cow disease and send the First Lady back to Africa to live in a cave.

“Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Hereford. He dies before his trial and is buried in a cow pasture next to Valerie Jarrett, who died weeks prior, after being convicted of sedition and treason, when a jihadi cellmate mistook her for being a nice person and decapitated her,” he told Artvoice.

He then added, “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.”

The comment’s came as no surprise to those who know Paladino, who is known for offensive comments, according to the New York Post.

“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,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement.

Ahead of the New York State primary last April, Paladino, along with a host of New York real estate players, were active in drumming up support for Trump, The Real Deal reported. Paladino says that he is proudly against politically correct culture and doubled down on his recent statements.

When the Buffalo News asked him to confirm that he made the inflammatory statements, he said: “Tell them all to go fuck themselves. Tell that Rod Watson I made that comment just for him.” Watson is one of the paper’s black editors and columnists.

“Yeah, I’m not politically correct,” he added. “They asked what I want and I told them.” [NYP]Christopher Cameron
