There’s no love lost between Donald Trump and Colin Powell.
In one massive document dump Wednesday, Powell’s personal emails dating back to June of 2014 leaked online, giving the world an intimate look at just how the former secretary of state felt about the Republican party’s presidential nominee -- and Powell’s views were far from favorable.
Presumably referring to the recent deaths and turmoil in Nice, Turkey and Louisiana of the past few days, Chloe wrote: 'Everyone in this industry needs to get their heads out of a hole and look around to realize what's ACTUALLY happening in the REAL world.
“I’m not going to start discussing someone else’s private emails.
In one of Powell’s more charitable emails, the former George W. The President graduated Harvard and was editor of the Law Review.
Bush cabinet member noted that Trump “appeals to the worst angels of the GOP nature and poor white folks.” In other messages, Powell called the billionaire a “national disgrace” and an “international pariah” and blasted Trump for the birther movement he began with President Obama. And now decades later Trump wants to see his transcripts to see if he should have been admitted.
“Yup, the whole birther movement was racist,” Powell wrote in August of this year. When Trump couldn’t keep that up he said he also wanted to see if the certificate noted that he was a Muslim. And for him to say yesterday that within four years he would have 95% of blacks voting for him is schizo fantasy.”Trump’s response, as per usual, was a succinct tweet on Powell’s shortcomings.
Hillary Clinton, who Powell also criticized harshly in his personal emails, declined to comment on the hacked documents.“I have a great deal of respect for Colin Powell, and I have a lot of sympathy for anyone whose emails become public,” Clinton said on Tom Joyner’s radio show Thursday morning.
