Donald Trump (yet again) proves there's no bottom - CNNPolitics
Roughly 24 hours after the death of Colin Powell, Donald Trump proved, again, that he is utterly incapable of empathy, grace or even common decency.

Just as he did when John McCain died, Trump is using Colin Powell's death as an opportunity to exact revenge.

Roughly 24 hours after the death of Colin Powell, Donald Trump proved, again, that he is utterly incapable of empathy, grace or even common decency.

"Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media," Trump said in a statement released Tuesday morning. "Hope that happens to me someday. He was a classic RINO, if even that, always being the first to attack other Republicans. He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!"

"But anyway, may he rest in peace!" Yes, Trump really said that.

The gulf between Trump's statement and that of other former presidents on Powell's passing is simply massive.

"Laura and I are deeply saddened by the death of Colin Powell," said George W. Bush. "He was a great public servant, starting with his time as a soldier during Vietnam." 

"General Powell was an exemplary soldier and an exemplary patriot," said Barack Obama. "He was at the center of some of the most consequential events of our lifetimes."

"He lived the promise of America, and spent a lifetime working to help our country, especially our young people, live up to its own ideals and noblest aspirations at home and around the world," said Bill Clinton.

What Trump's statement should remind us is that this is a man uniquely self-obsessed -- and without any ability to see beyond himself. 

Powell was openly critical of Trump -- he voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Joe Biden in 2020 -- and of the dark direction the billionaire businessman was leading the country. And so, Trump saw Powell's death as an opportunity to get back at him -- and took it.

This is, in a word, classless. In two words: Utterly classless.

It also puts to lie Trump's regularly repeated assertion that he loves the military more than any other president has ever loved the military.

Powell was an highly decorated soldier and served as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the first Gulf War. While there's no question that his argument that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction as a way to justify the second war in Iraq was a stain on his legacy, it's just as clear that this is a man who gave the vast majority of his adult life to service to the country.

No one should be surprised by this latest degradation of what it means to be a president by Trump. He spent four years in office defining the job downward. That some people will applaud Trump's trolling of a dead man is, perhaps, his most toxic legacy.

You'd like to think that items like this would wake his supporters up to what he really is, but so far no luck. 

I'm not holding my breath.

It most assuredly is the most honest and compassionate statement the 'Dweller in Mar-a-Lago' could possibly make.  Lacking every shred of honesty while being unable to muster even the most miniscule vestige of compassion not within the realm of himself and Princess Ivanka.

There are stories on NT about his comments and attitude towards Cheney and now Haley.

He even talks trash about McDonnell and Romney in somebody's new book meant to make him look good, lol.

I wonder if we got into the "Way back" machine to the days after Antonin Scalias death how much sympathy and respect he got from the left. From what I remember Obama refused to attend his funeral and there were many on the left that took pleasure in dancing on his grave 

That there is hypocrisy coming from the left is no surprise.

All the more reason why democrats need to get on with the business of governance, because whatever they do will be begrudged by the malcontents who will attempt retaliation.

So you approve of "what about ism" as long as the left does it. I have never seen you go after them for doing it.

From what I remember Obama refused to attend his funeral

President Obama paid his respects at the Supreme Court where Scalia's body was lying in repose while Vice President Biden attended his funeral.

there were many on the left that took pleasure in dancing on his grave

Where? Perhaps on Twitter? I do not recall any high profile Democrats doing any sort of grave dancing. There certainly were no comments from President Obama that stooped as low as dirty Donald does on a regular basis.

Besides all that desperate attempt at fabricating a 'what-about-ism' clearly shows Trump supporters have no respect, spine or grace and can only focus on widening the divide, especially when someone they perceive as an opponent dies.

The fact is that dishonest Donald's choice to lie about Covid almost certainly led to tens of thousands more Americans being exposed to it which eventually led to Powell being exposed and dying of complications from Covid only to be followed by the fat greasy petulant sore loser doing a jig on his grave.

I’d like to see and read an article titled    How Donald Trumps mental incapacitated so many he hated, as it’s been murder  on they , he, and me.   
Or possibly 

’How a Piece of Shit, Murdered Colin, 

Cause He Wasn’t His Powell’

No doubt Donald only likes people who got Covid and survived, everyone else was just a loser or a sucker.

Selective memory?

I will wait and see if you make a similar comment when a liberal engages in what about isms. I am sure you won't say anything because A) you will being the one doing it and B) you suffer from selective outrage.

Perhaps you could actually link some high profile Democrats comments that prove your claim, then perhaps you could accuse me of a selective memory. As it is you just continue blowing smoke with empty claims and unfounded accusations all while trying to defend a demented half witted dancing orange clown who has dozens of examples of despicable comments about fallen heroes and respected Americans.

Don't boo - VOTE! Pass some meaningful LEGISLATION in honor of the man: Colin Powell! As for Donald Trump, he is untrainable. Thus, he is a waste of good energy that can be spent on seeing that, "As God is your witness if I got anything to do with it Donald Trump and his cult will never run this country or by way of governance my life again!"

In all fairness, Donald Trump does have a bottom, his name is Richard Grenell.
