Max Boot, the fedora adorning dimwit who pens political op-eds over at Washington Post, used his platform on Monday to denigrate the sitting president of the United States and show his support for the now-dead leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. In his column titled, "Al-Baghdadi’s death could have been Trump’s finest hour. He messed it up anyway," Boot asserted that President Trump was wrong to have called Al-Baghdadi a coward because the terrorist blew himself and his children up instead of allowing himself to be captured by United States forces. Yes, Washington Post's star Never Trump columnist literally chose to praise Islamic extremists responsible for hundreds of deaths, rapes, and slavery in order to try and embarrass President Trump.
Here's the key portion of Boot's column:
A president who has never heard a shot fired in anger reveled in Baghdadi’s last moments, even claiming “he died like a coward … whimpering and crying and screaming all the way.” Trump could not possibly have heard “whimpering and crying” on the overhead imagery because there was no audio, and Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper and Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, pointedly refused to confirm those details. The assertion that Baghdadi died as a coward was, in any case, contradicted by the fact that rather than be captured, he blew himself up.

To be clear, according to the U.S. government, the ISIS leader died via suicide vest, killing his three children with him. In Max Boot's twisted mind, that makes him not a coward. Pathetic.
