The Commander in Chief addressed the nation Sunday morning where he announced the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and described him as dying in a vicious and violent way, blowing himself up with his own vest, as a coward, running and crying. “He died like a dog, he died like a coward, … whimpering and screaming– in a dead-end tunnel,” President Trump expressed.
Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Doug Collins (R-GA), weighed in with host Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” following the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, saying the President “kept his eye on the ball”, despite Democrats’ impeachment efforts.
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 Idlib Province. Trump said he died whimpering at the back of a dead-end tunnel, as reported by Fox News.
“First and foremost, it’s a great day for our special forces, those folks who dedicate themselves to doing exactly what they are trained to do, … root out evil, find it and kill it. I think it’s also a great day for the world when you see the whimpering coward of a terrorist Abu Baghdadi, who went into a cave and blew himself up,” Rep. Collins said.
“This is a man who threatened the world, who led a group who would rape, pillage and plunder, and yet he wanted to go in a cave and whimper and cower? All around the world, anybody who looks to ISIS right now, ought to look to their leader who whimpered and cowered in a corner and blew himself up,” Collins explained.
The Georgia Congressman then said he has a better story: “[Adam Schiff] can’t get information from his own intel committee about Syria. It goes to show you that this President, who has been attacked and who has been harassed, by an impeachment probe for the last 10 months, while all of this is going on, while the House is shut down, my committee, Judiciary can’t work, intelligence committee can’t work– Speaker Pelosi is completely helpless in trying to lead the House.” (Continued Below)
“This President took not only that and [has] been working with that, but kept his eye on the ball, kept his eye on the ball of killing ISIS leader and [a] terrorist. He shows you can do two things at one time. Obviously, our House can’t do this. Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats are incapable of doing that. The President has shown how true leadership looks,” Rep. Collins declared.
The Judiciary ranking member said of Pelosi, Schiff, and Schumer: “They are focused on one thing: that’s an election next November. This should be something celebrated by all parties, Democrats, Republicans, especially Americans, and around the world.”
“ISIS separated themselves. Their leader Abu Baghdadi separated themselves out and did not want to participate as the world we know it. They did not want to be a part– they wanted to kill everything and disrespect themselves from a civilized world knows,” he explained. (Video Below)
“Everyone this morning should be praising that and to see the silence on there– maybe they’re upset that their impeachment headlines are knocked off the front page for a morning. Maybe they’re just worried that they don’t know what to say. But I would encourage the Speaker, this is a good day for America. This is a good day for this administration, and it’s a good day for everyone who serves,” Collins added.
