Colin Powell: ‘Birther Nonsense’ Is ‘Killing The Base’ Of The GOP
The retired general has been outspoken in his criticism of the GOP in recent weeks, and his latest critique takes on conspiracy crazies:
“Republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president,” Powell said during an appearance on ABC News. “I mean, why aren’t Republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and all these other things? They should speak out. This is the kind of intolerance that I’ve been talking about where these idiot presentations continue to be made and you don’t see the senior leadership of the party say, ‘No, that’s wrong.’ In fact, sometimes by not speaking out, they’re encouraging it. And the base keeps buying the stuff.”Click here for reuse options!
