This is getting ridiculous…

Seriously.

You would think that the targeting and killing of an extremist ISIS leader—one that has been hell-bent on conquering the entirety of the Middle East and bring it all under radical Muslim rule—would be an issue that the Left could FINALLY get behind our POTUS on.

Think about it…

This terrorist may not be the mastermind that planned the attacks of 9/11 like Osama bin Laden…

But, arguably, this man may have been responsible for a LOT more deaths.

When Obama took out bin Laden, the world rejoiced.

Even Fox News gave the devil his due and praised Obama for pulling the trigger on the operation…

But how do you think that the Left has treated Trump’s victory over ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi?

If you were to guess, you’d think that they’d at least give him a little credit, right?

For once, you’d think they’d give him a moment of positive coverage or maybe an “atta-boy” at the very least…

But you’d be wrong.

Treating Trump Differently

Trump has been just as lambasted since taking out al-Baghdadi as he normally is.

Some of the headlines are just plain disrespectful…

First, there’s this winner from the worst “news” site on the internet, Vox:

Trump’s Baghdadi press conference shows how he ruins even his best moments.

It seems the Left is expecting Trump to act more like Obama did when he took out bin Laden…

But if there’s anything we know about our president, it’s that he’s not going to change for ANYBODY. And given the choice, I’d rather have a president who’s AUTHENTIC and gruff, but leads our country to victory and prosperity, than a president that is worried more about his own optics than those of the United States.

Then, there’s the offering from the failing New York Times:

Al-Baghdadi Raid Was a Victory Built on Factors Trump Derides

Do you see what they’re trying to do here?

They’re trying to snatch the victory away from Trump and hand it all over to the process and people that pulled it off.

Or, to put it another way…

They’re trying to do the very opposite of how they covered Obama’s bin Laden raid. If you read reports from back then, you’d have thought that they not only was Obama there with SEAL Team 6, but he also pulled the trigger to take bin Laden out.

But that wasn’t the worst of it…

Worst Apple Out Of The Whole Bunch

The worst of it came from the Obituary section in the Washington Post (which they’ve since changed due to criticism):

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48

Austere religious scholar?

Are you serious, WaPo?!

Trying to make this terrorist seem like anything less than the monster that he was is disingenuous and disgusting. It makes Trump look more like a murderer than a patriot taking out one of the most dangerous men on the planet. (For more on al-Baghdadi’s horrific actions and the military raid that brought him to justice, CLICK HERE.)

Do you see how they’re doing it?

And these aren’t even all of it…

CNN, MSNBC, CBS – all of them have headlines that paint Trump in a less-than-favorable light.

It’s terrible how they treat him…

And they wonder why he calls them out?

We don’t; we know EXACTLY why he does it…

Because they ARE fake news. They truly ARE putting out false narratives instead of presenting the unbiased facts.

But how do you deal with a bully? You stand up to them…

And Trump doesn’t suffer bullies.

He fights back and they can’t take it…

Welcome to the 21st Century news cycle, folks…

It’ll probably get worse before it gets better.
