Trump supporter Carl Paladino refuses to resign for racist comments despite school board vote

Published

on

Despite the Buffalo, New York School Board voting to oust fellow member Carl Paladino, he is refusing to resign, The Guardian reports.

Board President Barbara Seals Nevergold ripped Paladino up one side and down the other in a scathing speech before the vote Thursday.

“The impact on children of color, especially African-American children is incalculable,” she said. “How do we encourage them to use their God-given talents to soar, to reach for the stars, when a sitting board member responsible for their education demonstrates such contempt of their role models?”

The millionaire developer didn’t attend the board meeting on Thursday, but in a radio interview Wednesday he told the station, “I’m the agent of change. I’m the guy that exposed the underbelly of their corrupt and dysfunctional school system, and they want me gone from the scene.”

Last week, Paladino said in an interview that he wanted to see President Obama dead of mad cow disease and First Lady Michelle Obama “return to being a male” and living with a gorilla in Zimbabwe. He later attempted to excuse the remarks because he was acting emotionally and swore his comments had “nothing to do with race.” He said his remarks were a kind of “old-style humor.”

“By the time of the first presidential debate on September 29, 2020, at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, as many as eight million Americans in 16 states will have already started voting," said Rudy Giuliani who has been negotiating debates for Trump.

Published

This Tuesday, CNN's Brianna Keilar got into a heated exchange with Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp, fact-checking her assertions that mail-in voting can lead to election fraud. This Wednesday, Keilar did a follow-up on the segment, saying that a coronavirus death in the U.S. is more than "2000-times likely to occur than a case of voter fraud in any type of election."

Keilar then addressed some criticism her network has received over its choice to interview Trump campaign officials when their struggles with the truth are well known.
