al Baghdadi Dead
In a Monday appearance on the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, former Army captain and the author of Stand Down, James Hasson ripped the liberal media for their bizarre anti-Trump spin after ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was eliminated in a raid on his compound in northern Syria. He chalked it up to them being unable to get past their mentality that “what is good for Donald Trump is bad, and what is bad for Donald Trump is good.”
Even though the left and right came together to celebrate the Obama administration’s victory killing Osama Bin Laden in 2011, the leftists in the media couldn’t do the same for President Trump, when the U.S. military led a raid Saturday that killed prominent ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The anti-Trump hosts of The View Monday were so bitter, that they basically admitted there wasn’t anything Trump could do that would be applauded by them, because he was “tainted.”
Right on cue, the Jeffrey Zucker-led, Trump-hating CNN decided on Monday’s CNN Right Now to bringing on Deep State liar James Clapper to downplay the U.S. special forces raid that led to the death of ISIS leader of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Amidst his deep, visceral hate for Trump, Clapper suggesting the details President Trump shared of the raid were too “celebratory,” made him “cringe,” and could be false.
Filling in for Stephanie Ruhle during MSNBC’s 9:00 a.m. ET hour on Monday, anchor Chris Jansing worked to downplay President Trump’s “biggest foreign policy win so far” with the killing of ISIS terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a successful U.S. military raid by claiming that the operation revealed “the flaws in Trump’s foreign policy” and only happened “despite” him.
In case you were worried, CNN is here to tell you: The death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi at the hands of the U.S. military over the weekend won’t interrupt the impeachment push. In a series of articles on CNN.com, the liberal cable channel showcased a single-minded focus on impeachment, as well as irritation at how Donald Trump announced the death of the brutal thug.
CNBC's John Harwood, best known for his extreme bias against Republican and conservatives and in favor of Democrats, has let his Trump Derangement Syndrome get the better of him in the form of tweeting displeasure over the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Like many Democrats, Harwood was outraged that Trump went around members of Congress, including Nancy Pelosi.
Twitter blew up for a minute today over The Washington Post using this headline for an obituary of the founder of ISIS: "Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48." It inspired a satirical hashtag called #WaPoDeathNotices, including this 9/11 gibe by NB editor Curtis Houck: "Mohamed Atta, skilled aviator and leader of men, dies at 33. "
Mere moments after President Trump got done announcing that the United States had eliminated ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, CNN was off to the races criticizing much of what the President said. CNN host Jake Tapper was leading a largely anti-Trump, Obama-era panel of former intelligence community officials during a special two-hour edition of his Sunday show, State of the Union.
The liberal media were so enamored with President Obama when he gave the order that ultimately resulted in the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden; to the point of almost treating it as though he was the one to pull the actual trigger. But with news breaking late Saturday night that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi met the same fate, the Sunday morning newscasts were awash with anti-Trump journalists whining about President Trump using it a victory for his Middle East policies.
Now this is an Epic Satire Fail. Saturday Night Live went on the air at 11:30 pm Eastern time with an opening skit where Alec Baldwin's Very Fake Trump was thanked by Pete Davidson's Very Fake ISIS Member for "bringing jobs back...for ISIS." Six minutes before, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News was tweeting that ISIS leader Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi may have been killed by U.S. forces. John Santucci of ABC reported it via Twitter at 11:53. Somehow, NBC had no live break-in during SNL.
