  • Outrage and calls for Paladino to resign grow over Obama comments

    From: http://buffalonews.com/2016/12/23/ca...-social-media/

    Buffalo School Board member Carl P. Paladino's latest inflammatory comments to a weekly Buffalo paper saying he wished death by mad cow disease upon President Obama, referred to the first lady as a man and said he'd like her to be "let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortably in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla" prompted calls for his removal from the board and sparked outrage from Buffalo to the state capital.

    Even the transition team for President-elect Donald J. Trump – who Paladino campaigned fervently for – called his remarks "absolutely reprehensible" and having no place in the public discourse.

    Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz called on Paladino to resign immediately, as did Assemblyman Sean Ryan D-Buffalo, who said Paladino's comments are "outrageous, dangerous and disturbing."

    Paladino said in an interview on WBEN that he would not step down.
