Former New York Republican mayoral candidate Carl Paladino, an embarrassment to the state, is no asset to Trump.

Hours after appearing alongside Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trumpwhile he made his New York victory speech, Trump surrogate Carl Paladino likened President Obama to a “raccoon in the basement,” a racial slur that promptly reminded people why he was such an unpopular candidate for governor in 2010.

Paladino, a real estate developer turned Tea Party darling, spent a good portion of his four-and-a-half minute interview with David Greene leveling racially charged attacks against President Obama, who he described as “a man who in every respect looks like he despises America…

Paladino concluded the interview by explaining that “people who get on the Trump bus are people that are very, very frustrated with their government as it’s been,” before taking one last especially racially loaded shot at Obama.

“It doesn’t matter what kind of person is the exterminator, they want the raccoons out of the basement,” Paladino said as Greene promptly ended the segment.
