Donald J. Trump is his own al-Baghdadi Bob. General Gaslight’s bone spur bloodlust for oil kills the head of ISIS, but helps recruiting for Al-Q in the Global War on Terror… “as though you were watching a movie”. Trump was actually still playing golf during the raid.
Here's the moment: Trump downplays the operation to kill Osama bin Laden under President Obama because bin Laden didn't become "big" until the World Trade Center attacks and al-Baghdadi created a caliphate. pic.twitter.com/efLwLu1ROZ

Pool loaded into vans and drove short distance to Trump National Golf Club entrance, where we joined rest of motorcade for trip back to White House.
Motorcade was rolling at 3:33 p.m. Pooler did not spot any supporters or protesters at the club’s entrance.
#alBaghdadi mission is a testament to the professionalism of the National Mission Units. It also reveals Trump has no clue how we conduct Tier1 combat missions. Everything routine a President knows was clearly fascinating to him, even use of a K9 (which he calls a “dog” ISYN)

Can a reporter right now please ask Donald Trump this:
“To clarify, Mr President, at exactly the same time you were abandoning the Syrian Kurds to be slaughtered, and insulting them and telling us all they weren’t at Normandy, those same Kurds were helping you find Baghdadi?”

Good that #alBaghdadi is dead. The world is a better place.
Odd to hear Trump claim that killing Baghdadi was the number one goal of his presidency. I remember "Build the wall!" I remember "Lock her up!" I don't recall "Kill al Baghdadi!" Maybe I missed something…? #AMJoy

Can someone please tell Trump that US will need our allies to go after remaining ISIS terrorists and help national security objectives? That it isn't smart to mock them and instead praise Russia which is hostile to the US but very, very friendly to Trump? Oh…nevermind.
