Surprisingly Powell is a pretty snarky guy who's politics does not color his opinions as revealed by the leaked documents. If General Powell doesn't like you he will fire up his 56k modem, email one of his friends and dish on you... Hard!
So let's take a look at some of the emails making the rounds on the old internet machine starting off with the two people running to be the president of this country.
Here are some of the Powell's emails about Hillary Clinton...
“I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect. A 70-year-old person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not transformational, with a husband still dicking bimbos at home (according to the NYP).”
Meeeeow! (PS - The New York Post is Owned by Fox News' Rupert Murdoch.)
“Sad thing IS that HRC could have killed this two years ago by merely telling everyone honestly what she had done and not tie me into it. I told her staff three times not to try that gambit. I had to throw a mini tantrum at a Hampton’s party to get their attention.”'
"I have told Hilleary's [sic] minions repeatedly that they are making a mistake trying to drag me in, yet they still try,"
"HRC is the gift that keeps on taking,"
“Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris.”
Here are some of the Powell's emails about Donald Trump...
“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.”
"There is nothing he can say that will sway black voters so he might as well say it to white folks. He takes us for idiots," Powell, who is black, said in the email. "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. Or, demanding his school transcripts to see how he got into Harvard — (eg, affirmative action )."
“Trump just looks stupid trying to appeal to blacks and Latinos,”
“To go on and call him an idiot just emboldens him.”
“Trump has no sense of shame.”
“a national disgrace”
Here are some of the Powell's emails about Dick and Liz Cheney...
“They are idiots and spent force peddling a book that ain’t going nowhere.”
Here are some of the Powell's emails about The Republican Party...
An email with the subject line “racism” read...
“Or as I said before the 2012 election, ‘There is a level of intolerance in parts of the Republican Party.’”
"Benghazi is a stupid witch hunt."
"Basic fault falls on a courageous ambassador who thought Libyans now love me and I am ok in this very vulnerable place. But blame also rests on his leaders and supporters back here. Pat Kennedy, Intel community, DS and yes, HRC."
When Powell was asked to confirm the authenticity of the emails he did so without hesitation ominously adding...
"The hackers have a lot more,"
