If you were to go up to the plate and had previously determined to swing at every pitch, you would innevitably strikeout. This lesson is being learned by President Trump's media critics today as they offer up various hot takes on the raid that led ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to blow himself up on Saturday. Richard Haass, President of The Council on Foreign Relations, joined CNN Newsroom on Monday to talk about the raid and Trump's reaction to it.



The New York Times petulantly refused to grant President Trump any credit for the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, who died in a U.S. raid in Northwest Syria. David Sanger’s Monday “news analysis,” “Strategies Spurned by Trump Led to Triumph in Operation.” The online subhead read: “The president cast the death of the ISIS leader as validation of his disengagement strategy. But it required intelligence agencies and allies he has spurned.”



While a large majority of Americans celebrated the death of ISIS leader, Abu al-Baghdadi, certain members of the press were doing everything in their power to diminish the win for the country and the President. Included among those was Trevor Noah on Monday’s Daily Show with guest and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’ Rourke.



Only extreme partisans intent on denying President Trump any credit for any success would be critical of the operation he ordered that resulted in the death of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. These extreme partisans include Speaker Nancy Pelosi who, while praising the “heroism” of the special unit that conducted the raid on al-Baghdadi's location in Northern Syria, could not bring herself to say anything nice about the president. Instead, she said the House should have been notified in advance.



Dan Gainor, MRC’s Vice President of Business, TechWatch and Culture, appeared on Fox Business Network's Trish Regan Primetime to discuss the how the media’s bias against Donald Trump is so insane that they will treat terrorists better than the President of the United States.



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.
