omer_esenyel ABD'nin Dışişleri eski Bakanlarından, aynı zamanda Genelkurmay eski Başkanlarından Colin Powell, protestolara ilişkin takındığı tavırdan dolayı Başkan Trump'a sitem etmiş (azarlamış demeyeyim) ve Anayasadan uzaklaştığını söylemiş... Amerikan demokrasisi...

GOP ratsoffsinkingship

COlin Powell 'has drifted' far, FAR away from humanity. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT, there. Have we seen HIS 'black eye', or, maybe 'red shoes'...?............

Powell is another idiot. He's just trying to gain attention.

Anyone else enjoying Trump having a complete meltdown, because Colin Powell is exercising his right to vote for whoever the f*ck he wants?

Drifted away? More like Joey said: 'Over the line?! You-you're-you're so far past the line, that you-you can't even see the line! The line is a dot to you!'

Drifted? Trump has crumpled up the Constitution and used it as toilet paper after one of his fast food binges.

Trump never embraced the constitution so no he hasn't 'drifted' away. He hasn't changed.

If there’s anyone who can convince Trump supporters to reconsider their vote it’s... [checks notes]... old guard Republicans.

Trump was never qualified to be the president of America and has done more damage to America than Nixon.

Dear dear.. I started a war and told everybody Saddam had WMD. Even brought pictures. I strayed far away from the Constitution. Now I preach..

Drifted? Trump has been going full ahead on both screws in the opposite direction since the day he took office.


This is the same liar and coward who went before the world as a corrupt puppet and lied about WMD at the UN. I used to respect him but now he’s a disgraceful hypocrite. He has blood on his hand for thousands of Iraqi lives . Powell is scum and must be called out as a liar

'Drifted away' as if Trump was ever guided by the Constitution in the first place 🤣 dude thinks he's above the law and his puppets in power let him do it

In 2005, this would have been big news for the Republican Party. Sadly, most Republicans no longer care about what Colin Powell says.

I guess there are not enough wars around the World... so all these lowlife warmongers want the corrupt political establishment back in power...

Hypocrite. He was in on President George H. W. Bush's decision to send military troops onto the streets of Los Angeles. 'All you've got to do is say it,' he told Bush. Unless he thought the troops were there to sunbath on Venice Beach.

Drifted away? That’s being polite. I recall that most past WH occupants carried a small version of the constitution with them at all times for reference, trump probably carries a KKK booklet.

'drifted away?' oof. He ran so fast away from it that the RoadRunner was gobsmacked.

Hey its the wmd ‘s dude.. that went well for you

Drifted? Trump gunned the engine!

I read the article. Gen. Powell does not give one example of where he believes Pres. trump has 'drifted'. it's a just a talking point that miraculously a bunch of similarly situated former Generals said at the same time. Almost like it was coordinated.

One of the authors of weapons of mass destruction. Who gives a fuck what he thinks. Talk about blood on hands. His is dripping of blood 🩸

Drifted? Like the way a fucking jet ski “drifts” away?

As the days pass, POTUS becomes more and more like a dictator!

Drifted mean shat upon now?

Hahahahahaahahahahahahahahaha one black man hates trump and he’s a hero. Another black man supports trump and white democrats get a free pass to be racist

Drifted away? More like castaway.

Crispus Attucks, a black American, was killed in Boston 1770. His death triggered an uprising that set America free from colonialism! Was he a ‘Rioter’ or a ‘Patriot’?

he's wiped his ass with the constitution.

Please tell us Powell what would you have done looking to write a book

Let’s not water down what realDonaldTrump is doing..Mr. Trump hasn’t drifted away from the constitution...his entire goal is to destroy the constitution. He wants what Vlad control and he will do anything to keep stay focused and VOTE

Didn’t he lie about WMDs in Iraq?

Mr. Powel. Your opinion is such an understatement that it becomes useless. Besides, starting a war based on lies is nothing to be proud of, and your past disqualifies you as a credible voice.

do you want this? Looks not good.

'Drifted away'? Please. With Trump from day 1, WYSIWYG. He's been dragging the Constitution behind his golf cart for years. We told you so. VoteBlueToEndThisNightmare

WMD's anyone?

How can you drift away from anything you never have been near?

All you talk about is how bad trump is. Never talk with a never trumper because they have zero logic.

'Drifted away'? It's way out in the middle of the ocean and there is no rescue boat coming.

Colin Powell lied in front of the UN and got 500.000 killed We will never forget He should shut up and stay in his cave

We salute the General!!!

Trump will probably say: Powell is a weak failed man. He could not even figure out if he is black or white, Democrat or Republican. I won’t hire him to kill bed bugs in my hotels. Very weak fake general.

Conservative Trump fans be well aware these generals are not liberals as you often like to shoot it. Your 37% may not see it but the other 63% does


Because of people like you

I have never seen you guys put up a positive news about POTUS, you guys are really bias. So embarrassing

Another useless Globalist

Isn’t he the WMD guy...who lied and got us into the Iraq war?
