ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Colin Powell told graduates of South Carolina's premier historically black university that they were graduating during a tumultuous time that saw a royal wedding, a pope's beatification and a U.S. military assault that killed Osama bin Laden, "the worst person on earth."
But the former secretary of state and Joint Chiefs chairman told South Carolina State University's 400 graduates on Friday that he particularly enjoyed another recent event: "That was when President Obama took out his birth certificate and blew away Donald Trump and all the birthers!"

I CANNOT say what I am thinking!
Pound sand Colon!!! (Yes I spelled that correctly)
Just protecting his bro. How sad.
More like pissed on them with a new photoshop..
He can spin it any way he wants, but obama caved in to Trump.
Just protecting his bro. How sad.
This guy has turned out to be a total jerk.
Powell has become a ridiculous figure, a shameless shill for Obama after years of pretending to be some sort of Republican. His ‘analysis’ of any and every issue these days is no more than skin deep.
And, actually, Obama showed that BC to try to stop the rising public doubt caused by Trump.
The Birthers wanted to see his BC. He had to finally produce it. I think the Birthers won.
What ever happened to commencement addresses that were inspirational and not laced with politics?
I use to think this worm was somebody.
Was this idiot a General? The standards are really low I guess.
The problem for people like Powell is that they forget that REAL COUNTERFEIT Obama BCs were on the block years back and given the chance neither Obama nor the DNC looked into the problem.
Ordinarily when you are caught telling lies your future testimony is going to be suspect.
It's not enough for Obama to tell us "Well, here's what you wanted ~ take a look". He's gotta' provide something that's fully explainable from the day it was written up, and through 50 years of history!
That hasn't happened yet.
Fixed for ya...
Colon, why did BamBamKennedy NOT have in his possession his very own copy of his very own birth certificate? He had not lived in Hawaii for decades so why did he have to apply for a copy of his birth certificate? What did he use when he applied for a marriage certificate?
Most Americans I know can produce their birth certificate within hours not years. And all of the people I know would NOT play hide and seek about them being who they claim to be, most especially those people in a position of authority. So Colon what is BamBamKennedy hiding?
Colin Powell is a nasty spaced out affirmative action fraud who did his best to sabotage George Bush after he got his arse fired. Powell and Richard Armitage were behind the whole Valerie PLame mess which bogged down the Bush Administration
Listening to a radio interview with Joseph Farah, he claims the the discussion will turn back to BC issues starting next week. Still no Birth certificate.
Trump on the delivery of that fake document.......crickets!
Donald Perot has nothing to say?
Corsi book coming, Trump back in the saddle next week, Orly working the 9th circuit, Colon is going to have an irritable colon.
What a contrast to the Condi interview, posted immediately prior to this. She is strong in defense of the Bush administration’s tactics, while Powell picks an easy topic and takes the wrong side.
I hope he wanders off and that we never hear from him again.
Obozo and Colonoscopy are total clowns. If Bozo finally pulled out his BC (which I don’t believe), what took him so long?
I see this horse’s-behind is still voting with his skin color, for the first affirmative-action President.
I like it.
There’s a lot of politics in every walk of life; the military is no exception.
And, as bad as OBL was, I would only categorize him as one of the worst people on earth.
Sad. He is buying the. I thought he was a much sharper guy. I guess not.koolaid
My Prediction: It will never happen. They know it's a phony and the legal eagles will never take the risk that would come with real scrutiny of a paper copy by document experts.
And the jackasses who were listening applauded Colon? Only in America......
Colin... just when your fall from grace couldn’t be more pronounced. Then you surface again with another asinine statement.
If we would all agree on how “special” you are, will you finally STFU and go away??
He needs to do something about those enlargened pores
It wasn’t about the birth certificate.
It was about getting independents back on Obama’s side...
Trump helped Obama a great deal.
A Stepford General or the Bodysnatchers got him.
This does harm to Cain, West, Watts. If even 5% stay at home for fear of another Trojan Horse, good candidates can become runners-up.
Remember when he could have been President? Funny how life plays out, huh?
1968 slayings of Vietnamese civilians at My Lai
“But for Colin Powells involvement in this? Hey, wait a minute. Hes a black American hero.
“He was subordinate to Americal Division G-2, who should have gotten in a helicopter and flown down the ten minutes down there.
“But instead he stays in his air conditioned hooch and writes a soothing report about how American troops are trained not to do things like this. Just what the General wants to hear. Then gets back to his beer, or whatever.
“He should have been kicked out of the Army for his negligence.

By publicly acknowledging that what was shown was the REAL birth certificate, Obama boxed himself in. It shows that he is not a natural-born citizen. SCOTUS has ruled in four cases that BOTH parent(s) have to be US citizens. Obama Sr. was a British/Kenyan citizen when Jr. was born. Sr. NEVER became a US citizen. Obama should now resign if he has any concern for the Constitution. You know he won’t, even though the new birth certificate convicts him. He is a fraud, usurper and traitor.
Ued to admire that man. He could have been the first black President. But he was afraid. Too used ,to playing a role. Now he just lets it all hang out.
No way did he blow away the birthers. I am convinced he was not born in Hawaii. Why would he spend millions keeping it hidden? There is a discrepancy on who the doctor was. The hospital was a different one than first mentioned. And, to top it all, his father was a Brit so he can’t be a US citizen because of that.
Powell really has become an embarrassment.
Yup. With a photo shopped document. Colin Powell has no credibility.
I hope so...hope he’s just not trying to sell a book either.
