While the press, Trump, and Lindsey Graham are breathlessly recounting the mission in which ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson joined AM Joy to take the wind out of their sails just a wee bit. Guest host Yasmin Vassoughian asked the former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell to both Trump's and Graham's remarks about the mission in which our Special Operations troops chased him down and he ignited his suicide vest, killing himself and three of his children.
Vassoughian asked about Trump's taking credit for this raid, despite raging against President Barack Obama when Osama Bin Laden was killed that the president should get zero credit for that operation. Wilkerson put on his armchair psychologist hat, and spoke the understatement of the century.
Wilkerson went on to say Trump, and his lapdog Graham, are doing all they can to fight off the impending impeachment, and this is obviously, easily a big play in that game. Taking nothing, NOTHING away from the brave soldiers who did their duty and did it well, Wilkerson would like the rest of us to know it's not the victory Trump and Republicans are trying to make it out to be.
