RACISM/TRUMP PEOPLE: "Carl Paladino, who co-chaired Donald Trump's New York State presidential campaign, issued a defiant apology Tuesday for a recent racist screed in which he said his hopes for 2017 included seeing Michelle Obama "return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortably in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla."
In a statement read on WBEN radio in upstate New York, Paladino — the 2010 GOP nominee for governor of New York — said, "What is horrible is explaining to my 17-year-old daughter how her hero could be so stupid.""
