Who said it? Trump or Paladino?
Carl Paladino ran for governor of New York in 2010. Donald Trump flirted with a run for governor of New York in 2014.
Trump, a wealthy businessman and real estate developer with no prior political experience, is now the Republican nominee for president. Paladino, a wealthy businessman and real estate developer who had no prior political experience in 2010, is Trump’s New York campaign co-chairman.
In 2010, Paladino ultimately lost badly to an establishment candidate who is part of a well-known Democratic political family. If the polls are to be believed, Trump is poised to lose badly to an establishment candidate who is part of a well-known Democratic political family.
The similarities don’t end there – the two men were born a few months apart in 1946, both call New York home, and each one has made headlines – and both friends and enemies – for their unfiltered campaign style. (Of course, we don’t expect Trump to rebound with a run for the Buffalo School Board.)
Here are some of their more controversial comments. Can you tell which politician said what?
