A stopped clock may be right twice a day, but in the Trump Administration, Democrats can’t even claim THAT much.
When Trump was green-lighting the attack that would take out the ISIS leader that was responsible for so much death, destruction, devastation and displacement, Democrats were throwing insults in a profound display of their ignorance.
Arizona Democrat Party Chairman Felecia Rotellini falsely claimed on Saturday that President Donald Trump “has aligned himself with ISIS,” a remark that was made as Trump and other top officials prepared to gather in the White House Situation Room to watch U.S. forces kill ISIS Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
What’s the call on that political assessment?
She was so far off on that call that we had to go to the archives for that one.
Maybe she made some sort of a qualifying statement that would make it seem a little less dopey?

Nope. It was nothing but naked propaganda, desperately looking to find SOME kind of a weakness in Trump’s policy that can be used against him.
You can love the policy, hate the policy, or think it was probably the least-worst of the complex competing interests in the available options on the table with Turkey taking an impatiently aggressive posture against neighbors they see as a terrorist threat. (Yours truly is in that last category.)
With the death of al-Baghdadi — and others, including his likely successor — this Dem talking point has them looking pretty foolish.
The commitment anti-Trump propaganda seems to have turned a LOT of people into ISIS boosters…
