The failed Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino made the comments in response to a survey by Artvoice, a Buffalo newspaper. The publication asked local artists, performers and business owners for a New Yearâ€™s wish list.
In his response, Paladino wrote that he hopes the president dies from a disease caught from â€œhaving relationsâ€ with a cow.
He said he wants to see Michelle Obama â€œreturn to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortably in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla.â€
Paladino confirmed by phone and email Friday that he wrote the comments.Post published in: Featured
