CNN Hack Who Endorsed Josef Stalin Over Trump Retracts Comment Saying ISIS Leader Wasn't A Coward

Posted: Oct 29, 2019 1:20 PM

On Monday, Washington Post and CNN contributor Max Boot published an op-ed saying that President Donald J. Trump's assertion that the now deceased ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was a coward was "contradicted by the fact that rather than be captured, he blew himself up." Al-Baghdadi killed himself via a suicide vest and murdered three of his children during the explosion. He was using his offspring as a human shield against U.S. forces. After immediate backlash for his column, the Never Trump pundit issued a retraction on his post. 

"An earlier version included a sentence questioning whether Trump was right to call Baghdadi a coward. That was removed b/c it wrongly conveyed the impression that I considered Baghdadi courageous. As I wrote Sun: Baghdadi was 'a sick and depraved man,'" Boot tweeted. The statement was also added to his column.

As pointed out by National Republican Senate Committee senior advisor Matt Whitlock, Boot is the same person who also said, "I would sooner vote for Josef Stalin than I would vote for Donald Trump." 

Stalin's regime killed anywhere from 20 million to 60 million people, at least. Boot has long been a "Never Trump" media pundit invited on to CNN to discuss his insane rantings against the current president. The most notable thing about him is his fedora.
