Paladino on Eric Holder: 'F**k Him'

In a video obtained by Hotline OnCall's Jeremy Jacobs, New York gubernatorial Carl Paladino appears to say of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, "Fuck him."

At a campaign event, Paladino field questions, one of which is: "If you were the chief executive of New York, what would your response be to the attorney general of the United States deciding to hold terrorist trials in Manhattan?"

Paladino appears to respond, impishly: "Fuck him. Fuck him."

It's somewhat difficult to tell, from the video itself, whether Paladino is the one saying this. The first utterance isn't caught on camera. Skip ahead to 2:07 to see the exchange.
