    Former Sec. of State Colin Powell's private email has been hacked and his PRIVATE email messages indicate his EXTREME DISDAIN and LACK OF RESPECT for Trump. Here's what some of his messages say:

    o Trump is a "national disgrace and an international pariah."
    o "He appeals to the worst angels of the GOP nature and poor white folks."
    o Trump's birther movement is "racist." "That's what the 99% believe. When Trump couldn't keep that up he said he also wanted to see if the certificate noted that he was a Muslim."
    o "For him to say yesterday that within four years he would have 95% of blacks voting for him is schizo fantasy."
    o "And (former Fox News chief Roger) Ailes as an adviser won't heal with women."

    Powell's email messages are significant because they show that Sec. Powell, an upstanding Republican, has absolutely NO RESPECT for Donald Trump. Remember that these email messages were private ruminations, so Powell did not intend them to be made publicly available. In other words, only an alt-right Trump supporter would consider these messages as politically motivated. Indeed, some of the email messages also were critical of our future president, Hillary Clinton.

    Of course, you neglected to include Colin Powell's statement about Hillary Clinton. Here, let me help you. Powell said of HRC...

    "Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris."

    It should be noted that regardless of what Colin Powell says of either candidate, his opinion is hardly a game-changer. He has never been a fan of Trump or Hillary Clinton

    So Powell dished out against Trump and Hillary. The fact that he's a Republican makes it mildly interesting but really, one can only imagine the vitriol that Jeb Bush probably thinks of both of them.

    Yeah, you proved that you're very smart for pointing out the obvious. Joy! Thank you for the "help."

    Members like S2Ki are just one-trick ponies here. When you see a post from them you automatically know it's gonna be political, anti-Democrat, and full of lies and misrepresentations. Along with some vicious ad hominem attacks on other members who have contrary views.

    It does make me wonder if they can be that stupid & uninformed (assuming they're really gay in the first place), or well-paid, or purely doing it for the evil troll value. And then laugh as the rest of us have to scramble to correct their lies. Lest others here, or visitors to RJ, begin to think their falsehoods are true and represent mainstream gay thinking. "If you repeat a lie often enough..."

    Because they accomplish nothing by cursing the choir. They have as much likelihood of winning converts here as The Donald himself, if he were to speak before a meeting of the HRC (Human Rights Campaign). But guys who post on this gay health & fitness site mainly to promote anti-gay politicians and interests do make you wonder.

    And why would the DNC email new passwords AFTER they knew they’d been hacked?

    LOL – The geniuses at DNC realized their emails were hacked, then EMAILED new passwords to everyone… #dncleak pic.twitter.com/NB3YbZc2CE

    Speaking of "stupid & uniformed". Pot meet kettle. Actually, I would never call you "stupid", I know you're not that. But it's disappointing to see people like yourself who are so clueless to the world around them. Step out of your gay bubble for 5 minutes.

    I can only speak for myself, but I'm not trying to "accomplish" anything here other than express my opinion. I'm not here to "convert" anyone. I do sort of resent (though I won't lose a wink of sleep over it) you insinuating that just because I have a different mindset that I am somehow a bad gay or I'm faking it just to infiltrate a gay site. The idea that you think some of us are paid to be heroes a hoot -- seriously? --- Psssst....they pay us in "Make America Great Again money ;)"

    Silly GOOSE! He provided the fucking link. I read it already.
    What Powell say about Trump is the subject, and it is true.

    What he or the OP says about Clinton isn't hidden or "lied" about. Nor is it omitted....assuming you can read. And an editorial doesn't require equal time.
    You poor little dears, when you hear "Trump" you immediately say "Clinton! " in a Pavlovian drool.

    I read the link; it is clearly indicated as an analytical news report and not an editorial.

    Reporters used to pride themselves on being able to neutrally report on the news because they relied on their audience to apply reason and intelligence to what they report.

    Nowadays it seems that many reporters and their networks treat their audience like imbeciles who need to told how to think. Sadly, it's evident that a lot of people can't or won't apply basic critical analysis on obvious PR puff pieces masquerading as "news".

    The mainstream media has been absolutely disgusting and biased this election --- more so than usual

    I agree. They have been extremely reluctant to call Trump out on his multiple lies. The problem is news organizations are simply not equipped to cover a candidate whose entire campaign is a lie. Maintaining the image of fairness requires them to portray Hillary and Trump as equally flawed candidates, even though they know that's utter nonsense.
