Carl Paladino, the Trump campaign official who drew widespread condemnation for his racist remarks on the Obamas last week, apologized on Tuesday morning.
The Daily Beast notes that Paladino, co-chairman of Trump’s New York campaign, has issued an “apology” after he said that he wanted Michelle Obama to be “let loose” in Africa so she could live with apes.
“I never intended to hurt the minority community… to them I apologize,” said Paladino.
Paladino couldn’t leave it at that, though. He went on to further explain how he and his family are victims of attacks from liberals, noting that it’s been “horrible… watching my family and friends react to the rabid hordes of attacking parasites we now call activist progressives.”
“It’s been a sick, combative year for America,” he continued. “We changed the direction of our country and beat back the demons for a few decades. I am proud to have been a part of the making of history. As for the vanquished progressive haters out there spewing their venom at anything that is a reminder of their humiliating defeat, irrelevance is tough to chew on. For the mean-spirited, disoriented press trying to find grounding and recover legitimacy on my back, pray that you still have a job next year because you have lost all credibility with the people.”
He closed by reiterating that he is “certainly not a racist.” Just in case you are wondering what this non-racist said that so surprisingly offended people, he said that Michelle Obama should be “let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortably in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla,” and that he hopes Barack Obama “catches mad cow disease” and then “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.”
Well, at least you’re not a racist, Carl. I hate to hear how you would talk about black people if you were.
