In a remarkable indictment of the mainstream media, a disturbing trend has emerged since the news of the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – that President Trump was too mean in making the announcement.
When your Trump Derangement Syndrome is so advanced that you feel sympathy for a terrorist, you know it’s time to seek help.
Upon announcing the high-level kill by the U.S. military, the Commander-in-chief pulled no punches by describing Baghdadi in an accurate manner.
“He died like a dog. He died like a coward. The world is now a much safer place,” Trump said, before relaying that the ISIS leader ran to the end of a tunnel as American military dogs gave chase, “whimpering and crying and screaming all the way.”

Orange Man Bad – Not Baghdadi
Your demented liberal media’s takeaway from the President’s announcement? Gosh, that was really super mean.
Nick Paton Walsh, a Senior International Correspondent for CNN, actually compared President Trump to ISIS in how he delivered his remarks.
“There were lots of moments during Donald Trump’s speech which jarred to some degree,” Walsh complained. “It is extraordinary how the communications were managed.”
“It was a long trail ahead of him actually releasing details, explicit details, some of it which sort of echoed frankly the crudeness you would often expect to hear from ISIS about the whimpering, screaming Baghdadi penned down in a sealed tunnel killing himself and his three children,” he carried on. “It was sort of disturbing to hear to some degree.”
I’m not sure about our readers, but I found it to be a glorious description. Not disturbing in any manner.

Wait, There’s More
The insanity didn’t stop with CNN who shares common cause with any groups that would be decimated by the President’s actions as commander.
Over on Face the Nation, President Barack Obama’s CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell was being asked to analyze the historic takedown and had this to say: “You don’t want a locker-room kind of feel to this. That was the one thing we worked really hard on after the bin Laden raid, is don’t make those kinds of statements, because it does inspire other people.”
Nah, we’d argue that referring to Baghdadi’s organization as the JV team to al-Qaeda and claiming they’ve been contained within 24 hours of a major attack in Paris – THAT inspires other people to take up arms for the terrorists.
Not putting their leader down like a dog.
Time magazine, meanwhile, was using another Obama-era official to criticize Trump’s comments.
Daniel Benjamin, Coordinator for Counterterrorism at the State Department under Obama said, “What I don’t understand is why we need to get down in the gutter and use this kind of language. I don’t think it is American.”
Benjamin added, “I think it is beneath us all.”
The Washington Post accused the President of “creating spectacle” and criticized him for departing from Obama’s more measured tone on bin Laden.
White House officials insisted it is important to mock the death of Baghdadi and any other ISIS leaders.
“He was trying to do something we’ve done in the past, which is demonstrate that the leaders of Al Qaeda and ISIS are not courageous and they are not people who should be followed,” Roger Cressey, a former senior White House counterterrorism official under Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, explained.
The media will use any excuse to criticize Trump – even if it puts them on the same side as terrorists.
