A New York Republican candidate made the viral headlines on Thursday after claiming that Adolph Hitler is “the kind of leader we need today.”

In an audio clip, Republican Carl Paladino is invoking the Nazi leader and commending “how he aroused the crowds.”

“(H)e would get up there screaming these epithets, and these people were just — they were hypnotized by him,” Paladino said.

“That’s, I guess, I guess that’s the kind of leader we need today,” Paladino added.

Sources said Paladino, a former Republican gubernatorial candidate, is running for the 23rd Congressional District after Rep. Chris Jacobs (R-N.Y.) abruptly ended his reelection bid last week over backlash related to his support for an assault weapons ban.
