Trump goes for Colin Powell’s jugular after former Bush Secretary of State endorses Joe Biden

President Trump is attacking an accomplished Black man for criticizing him publicly. Not exactly a surprise, is it? This time though, Trump’s notoriously thin skin, as reflected by his Twitter account, seems exceptionally fragile.

That’s because just a day after reports emerged that former President George W. Bush would not vote for Trump, one of today’s most respected Republicans, former Joint Chiefs Chairman and Secretary of State Colin Powell, has said explicitly that he will vote for former Vice President Joe Biden — and he didn’t stop there.

“We have a Constitution. We have to follow that Constitution. And the president’s drifted away from it,” Powell said on CNN’s State of the Union. “The one word I have to use with respect to what he’s been doing for the last several years is the word I would never have used before, never would have used with any of the four presidents I worked for: He lies. He lies about things, and he gets away with it because people will not hold him accountable.”

Add your name to tell states and police to reject Trump’s calls to use violence against peaceful protestors!

Powell becomes the fourth former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs to speak out against the president’s abuse of power, and Trump did NOT take it well.

The idea of the flaccid Trump calling anyone a real stiff is alone enough to provoke some serious guffaws, but the irony of this president condemning Powell for using false information to advance a political agenda is lost on no one but Trump himself, apparently.

Trump returned to Powell again in a subsequent tweet that showed just how much the former Bush administration official’s endorsement of Biden had gotten under his skin.

Trump may think he’s posting a list of his achievements to bolster his campaign prospects, but, in actuality to many Americans, his list reads more like a damage claim after a man-made disaster than any record of accomplishments to boast of.

Of course, it’s not just Powell that has Trump panicking. The nation is turning against his horrendous leadership and disastrous policies in clear ways. No president since polling began has been so disliked at this point in his presidency, while on the other side, Joe Biden has surpassed 50% in the polls — a mark never reached by Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The consensus is that it’s likely to recur within hours.
