Former vice president Dick Cheney has claimed that people are going to be shocked by his new book, but former Secretary of State Colin Powell said Sunday that the tome was just full of “cheap shots.”
Cheney told NBC’s Jamie Gangel last week that there would be “heads exploding all over Washington” when his new memoir “In My Time” was released.
“My head isn’t exploding and I haven’t noticed any other heads exploding in Washington, D.C.,” Powell told CBS’ Bob Schieffer Sunday. “What really sort of got my attention was this way in which he characterized it, it’s going to cause heads to explode. That’s quite a visual and in fact, the kind of headline I would expect to come out a gossip column, that’s the kind of headline you might see one of the supermarket tabloids write.”
