President tells it like it is on the the most wanted terrorist leader in the world

Naturally, the anti-Trump news media is sympathetic.

The Washington Post is under fire, and rightfully so, after a headline characterized the Islamic State leader who was killed in a U.S. raid over the weekend as an “austere religious scholar.” The headline was quickly changed. But the Post’s true sentiments were revealed.

“He was a sick and depraved man, and now he’s dead … He’s dead as a doornail, and he didn’t die bravely either,” said President Trump.

Should be roundly commended as a great moment for our country and the world. But CNN quotes Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware criticizing the president for this reason. He didn’t tell Nancy.

“There is a long tradition of the President notifying leaders in Congress of both parties when there’s a sensitive operation underway,” said Coons. “But to disrespect the Speaker of the House, who is in the direct line of succession to the President, and to not inform bipartisan leaders in Congress, to only inform a few Republicans, I think was just one more important norm of cooperation shattered by this President.”

At the risk of sounding not all that analytical, oh well, too bad.

Some on the left, not all, are bemoaning the choice of words by the president. I’m not.

In case you missed President Trump’s complete statement about the killing of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi…
