In a Monday appearance on the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, former Army captain and Stand Down author 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.”
“Killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was a victory to the United States and it was a great day for all Americans, whether on the left or right or center,” Hasson told Carlson. “But instead, some in the media and the left, although I repeat myself, seem to be incapable of viewing any issue outside the prism of ‘what is good for Donald Trump is bad, and what is bad for Donald Trump is good.”
He recalled how shortly after news of Baghdadi’s death broke, there was “a cascade of attempts to either downplay the significance of the mission, or to find a negative angle from which to spin it.” Hasson also informed his host about how “CNN had a story on their homepage called: ‘How does killing Baghdadi affect the impeachment inquiry?’”
