Deroy Murdock: The defeat of ISIS is another Trump promise made, kept ... and nearly ignored by the liberal media

The recent defeat of the ISIS caliphate by U.S.-backed forces might not have merited the cheering crowds that clogged Times Square on V-J Day -- Aug. 14, 1945 -- when America toasted victory over Japan and won World War II. But the annihilation of the vicious, barbaric Islamic State -- once the size of two New Jerseys -- deserved far more than the relative shrug with which the media greeted it.

President Trump grasped this event’s significance and remarked accordingly. “I am pleased to announce that, together with our partners in the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, including the Iraqi Security Forces and the Syrian Democratic Forces, the United States has liberated all ISIS-controlled territory in Syria and Iraq — 100 percent of the caliphate,’” Trump stated March 23.....

…..But the liberal media’s response was far more muted, perhaps to give President Trump as little credit for obliterating these mass murderers whom Obama once foolishly dismissed as a “JV team.”
