An email leak revealed that former Secretary of State Colin Powell had some strong thoughts about 2016 and those involved in the election, as shown in Democratic megadonor Jeffrey Leeds’ email to Powell on July 24, 2014.

In the exchange, Powell expressed his somewhat cordial feelings towards current Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton but admitted, “I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect.” While he apparently considers her a friend, Powell also said Clinton was “greedy, not transformational.”

But it’s his statements about her husband, former President Bill Clinton, that have proven to be the real treasure.

Powell seemed to consider the former president a political detriment, writing that he was “still dicking bimbos at home (according to the [New York Post]).”

The rest of the email indicated that the Clintons were not fans of President Obama.

In previously released email, Powell called Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump a “national disgrace” and an “international pariah.”

Powell is not the first politician to face an email leak, but we can safely say that his intense shade has paid off in entertainment value:
