Recent hacked emails from Colin Powell reveal incendiary remarks made by him concerning Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
It appears that the former Secretary of State also believes that these two candidates are a disservice to the American people. The duopoly that we have here in America is responsible for all sorts of travesties foisted on ordinary Americans. Whether it’s excessive bailouts, intrusive government, wasteful boondoggles, or wholesale corruption, the Republican and Democratic parties have repeatedly usurped the rights of the people and undermined the principles of liberty. The latest assault in this procession of folly has been the nomination of Trump and Hillary – two of the most disliked presidential candidates in American history. This is what Colin Powell had to say about the two:
“Yup, the whole birther movement was racist. That’s what the 99% believe. When Trump couldn’t keep that up he said he also wanted to see if the certificate noted that he was a Muslim. As I have said before, ‘What if he was? Muslims are born as Americans every day.’”
“He is at 1% black voters and will drop. He takes us for idiots. He can never overcome what he tried to do to Obama with his search for the birth certificate hoping to force Obama out of the Presidency.”
“Trump is a disaster”
“I have told Hilleary’s minions repeatedly that they are making a mistake trying to drag me in, yet they still try… The media isn’t fooled and she is getting crucified. The differences are profound and they know it”
“They are going to dick up the legitimate and necessary use of emails with friggin records rules. I saw email more like a telephone than a cable machine. As long as the stuff is unclassified. I had a secure State.gov machine. Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris”
“Hillary has not been covering here self with glory. For good reason she comes across sleazy”
“I think there is something to it. On HD tv she doesn’t look good. She is working herself to death…. I was in Marc’s second house behind it and ducked her so we didn’t turn loose another email story by being seen together. She then flew back east the next morning. She will turn 70 her first year in office. “
“I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect. A 70-year person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not [sic] transformational, with a husband still d**king bimbos at home”
There you have it, folks. Colin Powell views Trump as a racist disaster and claims that everything Hillary touches is destroyed with her personal, sleazy hubris. Oh, and he also mentioned he never did what Hillary did with a private server.
This election is truly a race to the bottom. The American people should really think about this quite gravely because these two candidates are manifesting the symptoms of a nation in crisis. The American two party system has so fractured our society that we cannot even produce two reasonably decent, electable candidates. Instead, we have a psychopath and blowhard vying for supremacy. God help us!
