As might be expected, Donald Trump did not care for the comments made by former Secretary of State Colin Powell on CNN Sunday morning -- including his endorsement of Joe Biden as the next president of the United States, so the president lashed out on Twitter.
With Powell calling out the president for his treatment of Gold Star families and accusing the president of being a "liar" Trump tweeted back,"Colin Powell, a real stiff who was very responsible for getting us into the disastrous Middle East Wars, just announced he will be voting for another stiff, Sleepy Joe Biden. Didn’t Powell say that Iraq had “weapons of mass destruction?” They didn’t, but off we went to WAR!"
That received quite a bit of pushback from commenters with one bluntly stating, "You couldn’t shine Powell’s shoes."
