Typically when you see a headline about the New York Times commenting on something done by President Trump, it results in an immediate eye roll, as it’s almost a guarantee they’re going to sling a bunch of feces at him like the leftist rag they are.

However, it seems hell has frozen over, because the NYT recently did a story about Trump that didn’t involve them attempting to flay his personal character or performance in the Oval Office, but contained actual praise.

Brace yourselves. You chin may hit the floor.

Fox News has the details:

Ross Douthat, who previously endorsed Hillary Clinton, wrote that the Trump administration surprised him in foreign policy, namely in the war on ISIS that Trump has won.

“If you had told me in late 2016 that almost a year into the Trump era the caliphate would be all-but-beaten without something far worse happening in the Middle East, I would have been surprised and gratified,” Douthat wrote in an column titled “A War Trump Won.”

Douthat wrote that Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq – which he calls “the defining foreign policy calamity of Barack Obama’s second term” – were effectively routed by Trump without the need of a massive ground troop invasion and without getting into a war with Russia or Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

Douthat wrote that it is a “press failure” for succumbing to “the narrative of Trumpian disaster” and ignoring the story.

“But this is also a press failure, a case where the media is not adequately reporting an important success because it does not fit into the narrative of Trumpian disaster in which our journalistic entities are all invested,” he wrote.

Douthat went on to note Trump’s restraint and ability to avoid the temptation of getting involved in too many military conflicts on too many different fronts.

The columnist was also super happy with the president’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, noting that the Middle East has greatly changed it’s priorities over the last several decades.

It’s almost too much of a shock to the system to see such high praise coming from an unabashedly left-wing publication. One has to wonder how angry it’s making other writers on the staff to see their paper/site upholding Trump and giving him much earned praise?

Foreign policy is a difficult issue for any president to tackle, but Trump really had his work cut out for him after the mess Obama left with ISIS, strained relations with Israel, and generally unfavorable feelings from the rest of the world.

We were weak, no longer a strong leader on the global stage that could provide the solid example we used to when handling struggles and hardships. We lost a lot of respect as a result of Obama’s failed policies, and Trump is working hard to get that all back on track.

Looks like he’s doing a fabulous job thus far. If more people in the media were objective, this would likely be the kind of reporting you’d see about Trump on a regular basis, which just goes to show you how corrupt and biased today’s media really is.
