The 12 Greatest Hits of Colin Powell's Hacked Emails: Compares Trump to Jerry Springer Among Other Doozies

Sometimes you gotta tell your truth. Colin Powell may have masked his personal feelings about his fellow politicians in public, but Powell’s leaked emails show what he really thinks about the presidential candidates. This week, the former Secretary of State’s emails skipped straight past his signature diplomatic behavior and showed us that he is completely fed up with all sorts of bullshit. He does not like Hillary Clinton. He REALLY hates Donald Trump. And he’s tired of pretty much everything going on in the political world.

Of course, Powell’s name became an instant trending topic on Twitter as the details of his emails were captured in a flurry of tweets. In the midst of the circus-like conditions surrounding the upcoming election, his emails served as a nice comedic break (and insider tea spilling session) to take everyone’s mind of off the fact that the world is laughing at America because of Trump.

Basically, Mr. Powell is living his truth via email and it makes for damn good entertainment. He said some things we were already thinking, made some shocking statements, and positioned himself as the latest inspiration for great internet memes. So, let’s take a look at Powell’s greatest email hits.

Clinton actually HATES the Obamas

Her husband is still “dicking bimbos” at home

She’s old AF

And she can’t do anything right

Don’t worry, he doesn’t like Trump either. He called him a national disgrace.

And compared him to Jerry Springer. Because drama

Powell also thinks Trump is racist…

With a nutty military advisor

Trump wouldn’t know what the fuck to do as president

He also saved some shade for Dick Cheney

And told Condoleeza Rice Benghazi was stupid

Because Colin is fed up with everyone

And, after admitting to the emails, he told BuzzFeed “bye bye” and ended the conversation. Mic drop.
