There are so many things to be hopeful for in 2017: weight loss, accomplishing business goals, additional travel, stacking more coins, or for your President to die of cow disease while the First Lady simultaneously dwells alongside Gorillas in Africa.
Yes this is someone’s wish. No, we cannot make this stuff up.
The latter of the above mirrors the exact sentiments of Carl Paladino, a Buffalo school board member and one-time Republican candidate for governor of New York as well as a political ally for President-Elect Donald Trump.
In a recent publishing made by Artvoice, a weekly Buffalo newspaper, the western New York builder was asked alongside other locals what their hopes were for 2017.
Paladino’s response? For the President to catch mad cow disease and for Michelle Obama to “go away.”
"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."
After sharing his sick and twisted fantasy of the POTUS having sexual relations with a cow he then elaborated on his wish for Michelle.
"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."
It didn’t take long for the floodgates of condemnation to open on social media including backlash from New York governor, Andrew M. Cuomo, who called his remarks “racist, ugly, and reprehensible.” Cuomo went on to say that although “New Yorkers know Mr. Paladino is not to be taken seriously, his words are still jarring” to say the least.
Paladino’s response to the counterblasts was simple in that his remarks were just “old style humor,” nothing more, nothing less.
For those of us not feeling the need to chuckle at such vile and insensitive candor the defeated Republican candidate for governor had this one thing to say, “Merry Christmas and tough luck if you don’t like my answer.”
And a very Merry Christmas to you as well Mr. Paladino!
