Gidley slams Washington Post over al-Baghdadi obituary headline

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islamic State’s ‘terrorist-in-chief,’ dies at 48.”
The Washington Post calls Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and "austere religious scholar"

Principal deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley discusses the Trump administration’s Syria strategy and the raid that killed ISIS leader al-Baghdadi, along with The Washinton Post’s al-Baghdadi obituary headline with Harris Faulkner.

Some of what Gidley said was,”This President has great relationships across the globe despite what so many in the media and the democrat side. That’s exactly why we where able to pull off this mission and be so successful, but I have to be clear, what happened over the weekend was historic in so many ways and it protects the world at large. thousands of lives, countless lives quite frankly are going to be saved because of this successful mission and despite what the Washington Post wants you to think this was not some religious leader, a religious scholar, this was a terrorist, a disgusting man with a record of death and viciousness, destruction. He would put people in cages and set them on fire. He would decapitate people and put that video on the internet. Who could forget that precious girl Kayla Mueller, and what he did to her. It is unspeakable. She was a Christian missionary on the ground there professing the Bible and Christ and because she refused to denounce her religion, she was killed for it. She is a modern day martyr, and there is a special place for Kayla in Heaven and a special place for al-Baghdadi in Hell.”
