Paladino: Saying Michelle Obama should live in Africa with apes wasn’t about race
The Trump-loving failed New York candidate for governor says it’s the fault of the press.
After a firestorm of criticism, Paladino defended himself in a lengthy statement Friday obtained by Albany Times Union. “It has nothing to do with race. That’s the typical stance of the press when they can’t otherwise defend the acts of the person being attacked,” he said. “It’s about 2 progressive elitist ingrates who have hated their country so badly and destroyed its fabric in so many respects in 8 years.”
“As for Barack, he’s a yellow-bellied coward who left thousands to die in Syria and especially Aleppo and he gets on TV and says he feels bad he couldn’t do anything about it,” he continued.”
“And yes, it’s about a little deprecating humor which America lost for a long time. Merry Christmas and tough luck if you don’t like my answer,” Paladino said.
