Saying Trump 'drifted away' from Constitution, Colin Powell picks Biden

Joseph Ax, Susan Heavey

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Sunday endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, joining a growing chorus of Republicans and military leaders criticizing Republican President Donald Trump amid nationwide protests.

Powell, a Republican who led the U.S. military during the 1991 Gulf War in Iraq under President George H.W. Bush and later headed the State Department under President George W. Bush, said Trump “lies all the time,” has “drifted away” from the U.S. Constitution and poses a danger to American democracy.

“I cannot in any way support President Trump this year,” Powell, who did not vote for the Republican president in 2016, told CNN. Trump responded by calling Powell a “real stiff” on Twitter.

I wonder if Colin Powell (a black man) remembers that Joe Biden supported the KKK Exalted Cyclops Leader (and democrat Senator...:lol:), Robert Byrd?

Biden supporters are clueless.

I’ve lost a lot of respect for Powell.  I just don’t see how a sane person can say what he said here.

The public denunciations from figures including Powell and Murkowski could sway more Republicans, Sanford said.

“When these dominoes start to fall, they can fall a lot faster than people think,” he said.

 

Well, ex-governor Mark Sanford, the dominoes are falling.  Which is why Establishment-types like retired general Colin Powell are rushing to be used as nails to hold them up.

When was the last time the RINO voted for a republican?  I guess it makes the main stream media feel good to march RINO's out with their "I'm not voting for Trump" mantra.  It's not convincing anyone.

The media has used Powell against Trump in the past and they will use ANYTHING they can against the man to try to persuade the public that he's not going to win in November.

Unfortunately for the media and the establishment they support, their lies have been so blatant that even the densest of lead bricks can see they aren't worth paying attention to and their desperation reeks of old jocks and rancid garbage.

AND YET A FREAKEN' GAIN' an article that is innacurate, misleading or out right lies.

Powel did not lead U.S. troops as the article infers, that was GENERAL NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF!  What else is either wrong, a lie outright, or intentionally misleading?

This is always my beef with leftist.  They never back up their name calling.  He is Hitler?  How is he Hitler.  Did he invade Poland?  Did he Gas Jews?  Is he a Socialist?   I always get blank stares.

Well, he apparently voted for Hillary, twice for Obama, and not sure about Gore. So that makes it 2004 at best, for President anyway.

  Has he disarmed or even tried to disarm anyone, ESPECIALLY ENEMIES OR MINORITIES?

How about laws which limit freedoms, especially of a specific group/minority?

Made criticizing him, the Gov, policy or anything else a jailable offense?

The list goes on and on, the irony is not only is he anything but Hitler, a little word play on some of the things the Nazi's did many leftists would be more than happy to institute.

IE, should Gun owners have to wear an identification badge, should it be public knowledge?

This just in; Evan McMullin, Jeff Flake, John Kasich and Bill Kristol won't be voting for the President's reelection either.  Is this really news?  Powell didn't vote for a Republican since 2004 and I'm convinced he only did that because he worked for him.  Powell is a political nobody and he influences nothing.  These Republicans who don't support the President are the same names who didn't support him in 2016.  The stories about them are simply an attempt to illustrate that these clowns represent a major leakage in his base that doesn't really exist.

He may get bruised by independents but his base is pretty solid in spite of several Republican NeverTrumpers aren't going to support him AGAIN.  So this is a stupid, dishonest non-story.

Powell has endorsed the Democrat candidate since 2008.  This isn’t really news.

Colon Blow also supports sexual abuse. And pedophilia, by default.

Of course.  He's a democrat.  The tool came out firmly in support of Barry the Wonder Muslim bc of his race, so his credibility is done, which is a long-winded way of saying: "Who cares?""  :shrug:

Just like so many posters above, I lost all respect for Powell years ago. Anybody who could vote for Obama is an ignorant moron, but perhaps a few can be forgiven just because they "weren't aware" of the kind of racist/elitist/anti-American trash he was/is. However, after four long years of his crap, anybody who would vote for him again is a fool's fool; A true idiot. And then to vote for Hillary?!?!? Sorry, bub, you hafta turn in your "American Patriot" card immediately.
