  • COLIN POWELL: Not high on Donald Trump.
BuzzFeed has obtained private e-mails of former Secretary of State Colin Powell in which he calls Donald Trump a "national disgrace," leader of a "racist" movement and an "international pariah."

And lots more.

And in a December 2015 email to CNN anchor Fareed Zakaria, Powell recounted his aversion to speaking about Trump to the press, writing, “You guys are playing his game, you are his oxygen. He outraged us again today with his comments on Paris no-go for police districts. I will watch and pick the timing, not respond to the latest outrage.”
Nothing to see here. Back to the Clinton Foundation. And Hillary's e-mail.

Also: Here's another takedown of New York Times alibiing for its distended presidential coverage.
