If your hatred of President Trump is such that you can’t refrain from booing him at a ballgame on the evening after the world’s most dangerous terrorist has been eliminated, then, hey, go for it.

But it was not a good look.

It would have been a gracious gesture to lay off the president for just one night, acknowledging that the world is a safer place and because an implacable enemy of the United States (and civilization!) is dead.

The Washington Post, as you know by now, tried to soften the portrait of ISIS monster Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi with an obit originally bearing this headline:

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.

You’ve got to love this snippet from the obit:

From his teens, he was fascinated with Islamic history and the intricacies of Islamic law. Acquaintances would remember him as a shy, nearsighted youth who liked soccer but preferred to spend his free time at the local mosque.

“He always had religious or other books attached on the back of his bike,” Tariq Hameed, an acquaintance from the same lower-middle-class neighborhood, told a Newsweek interviewer in 2014. The young Ibrahim disdained the Western clothes popular with Samarra’s young men, preferring the traditional prayer cap, beard and white dishdasha robe of the religiously devout, neighbors said.

The London Times is also an anti-Trump paper, but, as Power Line notes, it did a more accurate obituary that serves as a “good reminder of how evil al-Baghdadi was.” Read this obituary(Power Line has it) for a more balanced take on the nearsighted soccer fan who has beheaded thousands of human beings.

Yes, it is true that the President’s announcement of the deed was sometimes less than elegant. Jonathan Tobin captured the atmospherics:

While giving the proper credit to the heroism of the operators who put an end to the career of a murderer and rapist who was one of the planet’s true villains, Trump did the presidential equivalent of an NFL touchdown dance

Pure Trump.

While the president often lacks graciousness in public, he is gutsy.

If our Acela Corridor elites are behaving as they are when the mission succeeds, can you imagine the reaction if it had failed?

Gutsy? Let's make that courgeous in this instance.
