Colin Powell's Leaked Email About Clinton's 'Bimbos' Blows Up Twitter

Colin Powell expresses his opinions of people with all the aplomb one would expect from a retired Army general. His leaked emails reveal that the former secretary of State spreads his disdain around quite a bit.

He doesn’t like Trump, but we knew that. It’s this tweet about Dame van der Cankles and her, um, husband that is getting all of the attention, however (language warning if you haven’t yet seen it):
