Team Trump Statement Condemns ‘Reprehensible’ Remarks from Carl Paladino About Obamas

paladino_northcountry-cropped-proto-custom_2A statement today from the Trump transition team makes it clear they condemn the comments made by New York campaign co-chair Carl Paladino.

Paladino’s 2017 “wish list” for a local news item included a desire to see President Obama dead and to send Michelle Obama “loose in the outback of Zimbabwe” with a gorilla. (Paladino argued that the latter was not racist.)

There were plenty of statements of condemnation today, but there was also this statement by the Trump transition team. Via USA Today:

“Carl’s comments are absolutely reprehensible, and they serve no place in our public discourse.”
