Trump's Buddy Carl Paladino's Racist 'Raccoon' Slur: Classy! (AUDIO)

So much for the kinder, gentler Trump Campaign.
Trump's Buddy Carl Paladino's Racist 'Raccoon' Slur:  Classy! (AUDIO)

They just can't help themselves. So much for the 'kinder gentler more presidential' Trump campaign. They couldn't keep that up for 24 hours.

Raw Story breaks the news that Trump's sidekick at last night's victory speech, the one and only Carl Paladino, got on National Public Radio this morning and

“[p]eople who get on the Trump bus are people that are very, very frustrated with their government as it’s been.”

“It doesn’t matter what kind of person is the exterminator, they want the raccoons out of the basement,” he declared.

“We’ll have to stop there,” NPR host David Green interrupted, quickly ending the interview.that the current President was a "raccoon in the attic".

Here's the audio:

Yes, THAT Carl Paladino, the one who was caught forwarding horse porn on his private email server while running for Governor of New York. The one who proposed coverting state prisons into welfare housing where poor people could learn "hygiene." That guy.

I don't expect Donald Trump to distance himself from Paladino or his remarks. The typical Paladino voter is Donald Trump's base.
