President Trump just scored a historic victory against ISIS and global, Islamic terrorism with the defeat of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The president announced al-Baghdadi’s death early Sunday morning. As patriots around the country celebrated this achievement, all that Democrat leaders could do was complain. Their whining reveals just how petty and un-American they really are.
During a Sunday morning press event, President Trump announced that U.S. forces and our allies hunted down and defeated ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It was a coordinated effort that took out one of the most notorious terrorists the world has ever known.
“He died like a dog, he died like a coward,” Trump said in a speech to the nation Sunday morning.
The ISIS leader’s death came in a successful U.S. military operation in northwest Syria Saturday night that took roughly two hours.
The Islamic State leader detonated an explosive vest as U.S. Special Operations Forces stormed his compound in the Idrib Province. Trump said he died whimpering at the back of a dead-end tunnel…

Soon after this news came out, Americans offered their thanks to the president and our brave soldiers. Naturally, this is a time to take hope, as we see the United States achieve a major victory in the ongoing war against terrorism.
But not every American is happy. Apparently, the Washington Post was a fan of the murderer, when they posted an obit calling him an “austere religious scholar.” There is a reason we call the MSM fake news, after all.
Democrats were also none too pleased. Not because a killer was dead, but because Trump didn’t scurry over to them and tell them about the operation ahead of time.
Despite nearly universal praise for the U.S. troops involved in the raid on Saturday that led to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leading congressional Democrats were unhappy that the Trump Administration failed to brief them beforehand.
“I was told right before I came on,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” Swalwell added that nobody in the Democratic leadership, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, was informed of the raid.

Good! These people have spent the better part of three years trying to undermine the Trump administration. They have leaked information to the press. They have held press conferences to disrupt Trump’s progress. Why would he tell them about this huge mission—knowing they would do something to steal the spotlight?
Also, there’s this: Democrats hate Trump so much, they might have done something to spoil the operation. We all know that there are a few Democrats in the House with loyalties to CAIR and other Islamic groups. It’s not outside the realm of possibility that they could have passed along word of this operation to people overseas.
Could they have done something to help al-Baghdadi, perhaps tip him off so he could have gotten away?
Listen, I’m sure most Democrats don’t like terrorists. But they do hate Trump—to the point of being irrational and derange. I wouldn’t put it past some of them to do something that awful to spoil Trump’s plans and make him look bad in front of the media.
Now they’re stuck. They can’t really say anything bad about Trump’s operation unless they appear to be defending ISIS. They can’t even complain about the loss of American lives, because no American was killed.
All they can do is whine that they weren’t briefed ahead of time. Boo-hoo. What a bunch of babies. Hey, this isn’t about you, Democrats. This is about our brave troops scoring a huge win for the entire world. Why can’t you shut up just for once and be happy about that?
Is it because, after all, they really don’t care about America or our successes? Could be.
