Is CBS trying to garner sympathy for Hillary Clinton or turn Americans against Colin Powell?
From CBS News:
In one blunt 2014 email with Democratic donor Jeffrey Leeds, Powell had this to say of Clinton:
"I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect. A 70-year person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy,not [sic] transformational, with a husband still d**king bimbos at home (according to the NYP)."
This is the most bizarre election ever!
It just keeps getting weirder.
Powell was really, really stupid to write that stuff in emails.
Did he think it was secure?
Not a nice man and not a smart move.
No surprise the New York Times highlights Powell's disdain for Trump rather than him calling Hillary "greedy" and "not transformational":
Colin Powell called Donald Trump a “national disgrace” and an “international pariah” in leaked emails https://t.co/I5y6l0g4JH— The New York Times (@nytimes) September 14, 2016
Powell calls Dick Cheney and his daughter "idiots."

I'm amazed that Powell wrote these comments in emails.
Who's the idiot here?
