Evan McMullin claims GOP has problem with racism

Evan McMullin claims GOP has problem with racism.


After he jumped into the presidential race as a political unknown on the fringe, independent candidate Evan McMullin becomes the conduit for conservative voters fed up with Republican Donald Trump’s crudeness and antics.

Former independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin says the GOP needs new leadership to solve its struggles with racism.McMullin, who ran as a conservative alternative to President-elect Donald Trump, added Republicans must unite against racism before they win over minority voters.Carl Paladino, who served as a New York co-chairman for Trump’s campaign, made racist remarks about first lady Michelle Obama last Friday.

“I’d like her to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortable in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla,” Paladino told arts publication Artvoice when asked “What would you like to see go in 2017?”

The Buffalo real estate developer also said he hopes President Obama dies from mad cow disease.

Trump spokeswoman Jessica Ditto last Friday condemned Paladino’s remarks as “absolutely reprehensible,” adding “they serve no place in our public discourse.”

Paladino meanwhile, vowed he would not give up his Buffalo School Board seat while apologizing for the comments.

“I never intended to hurt the minority community who I spent years trying to help out of the cycle of poverty in our inner cities,” he gaved statement. “To them I apologize.”

“No, I’m not leaving the school board, not when it’s time to implement the real choice elements of Trump’s plan for education reform,” Paladino wrote, insisting he is “certainly not a racist.”
