RIP. wait, wasn't he double vaccinated? I salute ! R.I.P to the legendary hero.

Powell had end stage cancer yet the media lists this as a Covid death. This is exactly why so many Americans are dubious about this topic and the misinformation disseminated by places like CNN. The media is the mouthpiece for the democrats who continue to weaponize this disease. 🙏🙏🙏 Rest In Peace. Colin Powel

Was he vaccinated or not? 🤔 Anyways glad to know about his death.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell dies from Covid complicationsBREAKING: Former Secretary of State Colin Powell , the first Black Secretary of State, died Monday due to complications from Covid-19, his family said in a statement on Facebook. The world is a long way from a cure to COVID19 RIP, sir. I hope your passing isn't for naught. I hope all the vaccination protesters grasp the concept of the mitigation of a GLOBAL pandemic. A friend has a deadly disease and cannot be admitted to hospital because there are no beds which have been allotted to Covid patients. Lol apparently to trump geniuses… a 90% effectiveness of the vaccine means you are 100% covered from serious illness

RIP sir May he rest in pace. Oh you forgot War Criminal in your description of him. He would have been a great president At age of 84. What’s the normal age to die? What is the normal way to die at this age? Why keep scaring people by emphasizing at a certain disease, but not just give an honor to a honorable man?

Damn. 🙏 Four of the five living former presidents paid tribute to Gen. Colin Powell within hours of his death on Monday. Former President Trump was the sole exception. Anyone surprised? Another loss of one of the few Republicans left who values democracy and who called Trump the liar he is. ..of COVID-19 no less. Now that's sad 😥.

PHOTOS: Colin Powell through the yearsA look back at the first African American to serve as secretary of state and on the Joints Chief of Staff, Gen. Colin Powell . 😢 Thank god he got the shot, things could have gone badly for him otherwise...

Very sad news. As usual the media only reports half truths! He had cancer and happened to get COVID also. Vax or not, the cancer was probably going to kill him, but that’s not a good news headline! MORE LIES He was fully vaccinated And he died of Cancer not covid you fukin morons Vaccinated or not you still are at risks..vaccine has also side effects...

Come on people stop playing dumb U and I know this person was one the biggest war criminals out there just stop playing dumb the world knows the faces of true evil by now 🤷🏻‍♂️🤡🙃😒 So sorry to hear! RIP!!🙏🙏🙏 War criminal !! Ein böser Mensch weniger auf der Welt... Such a loss ... I met him years ago and had the utmost respect for him ... Rip

So much for vaccines! Am I taking my 'palace intrigue' suspicions too far by suggesting that Colin was injected with a toxic vaccine? Aren't pandemics and vaccines simply the PERFECT way for gov't to rid itself of enemies and bothersome types?

First off, this is terrible. Second, CNN gonna CNN. No mention in the headline about how he was fully vaxxed but also had cancer. Let’s not act like the cancer wasn’t killing him before Covid did. RIP great man Irresponsible for headline of this tragic death to omit Powell's recent chemo for myeloma=immune response to vaccine nihilists an argument vs vax is a public health travesty.His death=reason to vax & protect valued folks w/o full antibody response to vax.

Such a shame he battled cancer and Parkinson's that weaken his immune system. I have nothing but the upmost respect for him. A Life filled with honor and integrity. The unvaccinated did it 😂😂😂 And a REAL BLACK MAN when it mattered...endorsed Barack obama...well done, good and faithful servant. Job well done. Rest in peace

rosemaryCNN Sadly, elderly people have to take the booster. As soon as they can; is there to protect themselves! RIP

Colin Powell has died of COVID-19 complications, family saysWASHIINGTON (AP) — Colin Powell , former Joint Chiefs chairman and secretary of state, has died from COVID-19 complications, his family said Monday. He was 84. In 1989 Powell became the first Black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Colin Powell's family said in an announcement on social media that he had been fully vaccinated. “We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father and grandfather and a great American,” the family said. Fake news. Didn’t die coz of the Chinese virus. He was one of the best Defence Secretaries for the country

RIP,John 3:16 grandma Colin Powell, a great leader and a man I admired so much. Rest in power king👊🏾 The Iraq WMD fiasco was the only blemish on an otherwise a distinguished career. He had a weakened immune system due to cancer. So sad 😢 So sad. May he Rest in Peace. My prayers to his family. Mostly an admirable career. But then there’s the Iraq War. Hard, close to impossible, to get past that betrayal of the nation.

My condolences to your family and friends sir, a trusted soldier, family man, Christian man, who I deeply served in Europe during your time in service. RIP sir and thank you, thank you and thank you. VETNATION. Great man! The summary caption above his photo is MISLEADING Rest In Heaven. R.I.H. 🙏

اين سيذهب من عذاب ربه على افتراءه على العراق..والدمار الشامل What a loss! A man of true integrity and morality. ‼️ RIP 🙏🏼 iamEXOcet siuol_calibur RIP. He didn’t go to West Point because he didn’t have excellent grades, but look how far he went. 🔥 Sometimes to be accepted to these military academies is WHO YOU KNOW and since he was a poor black guy from Harlem, NY that tells you everything. 😏

Who was battling blood cancer has died from COVID 19 fixed it for you!🤬🤬🤬 Prayers for his family this Virus is really bad Prayers for his family & friends.

That’s not true. His family talked about his blood cancer, and he was 84. Sad to hijack this man’s passing. Was Joint Chief when I was in Desert Storm. Utmost respect, not like the weak leadership now ColinPowell was a man of integrity. A true gentleman. He leaves a lasting legacy.

But for one moment in the United Nations back in 2003, Colin Powell would be remembered as one of our most admired leaders. His nearly blind loyalty to George W. Bush probably kept him from running for president. 👋 😪 Rest In Peace. A great American. 😯 Let’s be clear. He had cancer. His body’s immune system was suppressed. So you non Vaxers need to STOP. I expect that if I get covid and then get hit by a bus you’ll say if my head was clear I would have seen the bus. So my death would be complications from covid. RIP C.P.

Where are the conspiracy theorists denying that he died of covid.

Rest in Peace. Sorry to hear you have lost your battle with LYMPHOMA. How sad 😢. Prayers for his family. That’s suspicious. Thought the vaccine protects against that. RiP Rest in peace. I lost a lot of respect for him when he helped start the Iraq war in search of WMD which forever destabilized the middle east. I regained some respect for him when he spoke out against Trump.

Colin Powell was so inspiring. As a veteran I am definatley proud. RIP Sir!! 🥲 Fauci says nothing about the thousands of illegals crossing our border with covid 19 because he is a hypocrite who only wants to protect his paycheck. He is a joke. Does anyone even know if he had been vaccinated? Rest in peace sir. You did so much good!!!

Rest in peace🕊️. Does it mean being vaccinated isn't safe enough? God help us all Nuke ➡️ iran ➡️ tehran Omr of our greatest leaders. RIP Colin Powell. Your were the best Colin Powell, your will be missed. Praying for your family General Colin Powell was such a man of integrity Get The Full One Here YouTube: Slikouronlife: AppleMusic:

😔💕💐💜✊🙏🎖🎖💪✝️🙏🪦🇺🇸😴✌️💐 Died by WMDs? My condolences to his family. Rest in Peace. Rest In Peace, Sir!

Rest in peace you did America proud giovanifreitas1 what a pity May his departed soul rest in peace Vaccinated or not, we will eventually die. Plus, for those making those silly remarks, he was compromised, unfortunately, making more difficult for him. Any of us with a condition know this. Healthier people, more power to you. Get vaccinated! RIP Sir 🙏

I suppose the Iraqi people wouldn't consider him all that great RIP SIR. Be nice if they mentioned he had Myeloma which most likely kicked the crap out of his immune system But then, not as good click bait as just saying he died and was vaccinated. ishiitakaaki Please tell me the order in which he was killed by Chinese Communist Party.

I thought it was Covid related, whatever that means. He was 84 though so good chance he was on his way, with or without Covid. The thing is I simply do not trust you, the Media to be truthful. You all have a fcuking agenda, which makes me not like you.

This really hurts the pro vaccine argument, like really bad No he did not die of anything remotely associated with coronavirus. He fell down and broke his neck. I’m sad about that. He should have been a President So sorry Prayers for the Powell family,sorry for your loss,it’s a loss to the country as well.🙏🏾🙏🏾

RIP condolence to family 🙏 Wow the mRNA vaccines doing a bangup job wiping out leadership. Whose next? Prayers for his family tuned in to see all the hateful comments from the left. Y'all didn't disappoint.

Good luck convincing people too get the vaccine now America 😂😂 R.I.H to a great man and soldier, thank you for your service sir, this veteran salute's you 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🙏🙏 RIP Colin Powell Nooooooo!!!! How sad!!! Instead of just expressing condolences to his family who lost an amazing person y’all want to debate his vaccination state and use it to defend your stance on anti vax. I swear this world is getting more pathetic with each passing day. Ppl need to actually READ facts. RIP Sir 💕

A 84 ans c'est l'âge que les gens commence a mourrir civid ou non RIP General . Thanks for your service. Tragic loss. Prayers for his family. omg prayers for the family 😭😭😭 RIP. The best!

Damn I love Covid-19 now! sumanthraman Biden is managing Covid so well that CNN need not give daily updates I remember meeting him in the 1990’s & he explained why he wouldn’t run for President. After the fall of the Soviet Union America’s adversary was unclear & he didn’t have a vision as a leader for us. Plus, politics takes a toll on family & he didn’t want to put his through it.

cammyk_67 He was a real American! May his soul rest in peace. Thank god he got the shot, things could have gone badly for him otherwise... May not have agreed with all he did but he served our country or doubted his patriotism . Rest In Peace General War criminal. KatyKatopodis We wish deepest condolences to family and friends from us at 70vibefm !

I'm so sad and heartbroken over his death.
