Colin Powell on Trolling Republicans

01 Oct

Powell went to work for George W. Bush due to loyalty to his father. That was catastrophic, not only for Powell’s reputation, but the entire country because of Dick Cheney.

Powell is not done sticking the fork in those scumbags yet…

Colin Powell admits he’s trolling the GOP: “I continue to be a Republican because it annoys them”

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said at the Washington Ideas Forum Wednesday that he only remains a Republican “because it annoys them,” the Hill’s Mark Hensch reports.

“I continue to be a Republican because it annoys them,” Powell told host Walter Isaacson. “I think the party has shifted much further right than where the country is, and it should be obvious to party leaders that they cannot keep saying and doing the things that they were doing and hope to be successful in national-level election in the future — not just in 2016.”

Powell also claimed that the current crop of GOP candidates is mistaken in believing that the majority of the country — Republicans included — doesn’t want the next president to act on immigration reform. “I think most Republicans understand that we need immigration, we are an immigrant nation [and that] it is in our best interest to do it,” he said.

However, he added, “there are pockets of intolerance within the Republican Party [and] the Republican Party had better figure out how to defeat that.”

Powell disagreed in particular with Donald Trump, saying that “if I was around Mr. Trump — Donald, who I know rather well — I would say, ‘You know, Don, let’s see what happens — let’s tell all the immigrants working in Trump hotels to stay home tomorrow. Let’s see what happens.’”

    I am sure Powell is still bitter about the smear campaign that Rove and The Establishment GOP ran against him by making his wife’s previous battle with depression public as a threat as to what they would do if he actually ran in the GOP primary in 1996.

    Of course the GOP planned to run token opposition against Clinton that year because they already knew about Monica Lewinsky and knew that Clinton would spend the majority of his second term bogged down with the Paula Jones lawsuit and subsequent BJ scandal which was the result of the Arkansas Project.

    Besides they were putting the finishing touches on PNAC and had already chosen Bush the Lesser to carry out their plan. All they had to do was install Jeb as governor of Florida in the 1998 election and he would deliver Florida for his older brother in 2000.

      They are still recovering from the disastrous consequences of Bush II implementing their Party Platform.

    Trump is too sensible to be a Republican now-a-days…. but then again, you need someone like him to (hopefully, eventually), bring the party back. Hell, 40 years ago, Obama could have run as a Republican. His platform and policies would have been virtually identical.

      I could say a lot of things about Trump…But sensible isn’t one of them. I believe he is totally motivated by ego. I keep hoping his is a clever ruse to destroy the Party – and thus remake it…But I don’t believe that at this point.

      And yes, both the Clinton’s and Obama would have easily fit into the Party of Nixon.

      I have always said that Obama’s major weakness in not actually growing up in this Country was that as a black man he really didn’t understand what, and what drove his Republican opponents.

        Apologies – I miss-typed. I said “Trump” when I meant to say “Powell is too sensible”. TRUMP is an absolute idiot.
