RUSH TRANSCRIPT: 
"Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is confirming the authenticity of e-mails in which he has harsh words for Donald Trump and other leaders. According to his personal e-mails seen by buzz feed, Powell called trump a national disgrace. In an e-mail from August 21st, Powell wrote of trump’s demand that President Obama release his birth certificate. The whole birther movement was racist. That’s what the 99% believe. When trump couldn’t keep that up, he said he also wanted to see if the certificate noted he was a Muslim. As I have said before, what if he was? Muslims are born as Americans every day, Powell wrote."
