BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The board of education for Buffalo's public school system has called a special meeting in the wake of derogatory statements about President Barack Obama and his wife that were made by board member who's a Donald Trump supporter.

A statement released by the city school district says board President Barbara Nevergold has called for the special meeting Thursday afternoon to "discuss board member conduct." The meeting will be held in the City Council chambers in Buffalo City Hall.

The board is expected to discuss recent insults board member Carl Paladino directed at the Obamas.

The millionaire developer and co-chair of president-elect Trump's New York state campaign told a Buffalo alternative newspaper last week that he hoped President Obama would die from mad cow disease and that Michelle Obama would "return to being a male."
