NY school board slams Trump’s racist ally Carl Paladino: ‘Words matter, and you’re fired!’

The fallout over Donald Trump‘s New York campaign co-chair Carl Paladino‘s racist comments regarding First Lady Michelle Obama reached a pinnacle this Thursday, when the Buffalo School Board held a blistering session with the school board’s president leveling a damning criticism of Paladino.

“Words matter, Mr. Paladino,” Barbara Seals Nevergold said during the meeting, of which Paladino was not in attendance. “Our president, the Commander in Chief of this nation for the last eight years, Mrs. Obama, our First Lady, and Mrs. Valerie Jarrett, special presidential council are all African-Americans. Among other things, they are accomplished, intelligent, beautiful people and that’s not just my opinion.”

Nevergold pointed out that despite the vast accomplishments of African Americans in the Obama administration, Paladino chose to describe them in language reserved for “depraved individuals.”

“The impact on children of color, especially African-American children is incalculable,” she continued. “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?”

She said that Paladino’s comments were examples of his “unmitigated and hateful, racist and misogynist, rhetoric,” adding that people she’s heard from people all over the country who agree that Paladino’s comments “demonstrate such a lack of responsible leadership.”

“They would like me to tell you, ‘You’re fired,’” Nevergold said to applause from the audience.
