DONALD TRUMP’S TRIBUTE TO COLIN POWELL
While other world leaders are pouring encomiums on the late Colin Powell, who died yesterday from complications of COVID-19, and at a time when people around the globe are saluting the legacy of this great American patriot, Donald J. Trump decided this was the moment to heap opprobrium on the late General. In such an inopportune time and in a gross display of a classless act, the doyen of the American right-wing and the messiah of the Christian conservatives chose to throw mud to disparage an American hero.
In a statement released today, through his Save America political action committee, Trump wrote:
“Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media. Hope that happens to me someday. He was a classic RINO, (i.e., Republican In Name Only), if even that, always being the first to attack other Republicans. He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!”
It’s no longer news that Donald Trump has a huge chasm where his soul is supposed to be. So, this “tribute” should surprise no one. No matter how well you dress up a pig, it’ll always be a pig and will always go back to the mud. Donald Trump is a sad, sad, human being.
