Syria pokes a finger in Donald Trump’s eyes as it has resumed operations from the air field that the U.S. bombed during Tomahawk missile strikes Thursday night. Um, so much winning. It was all a charade.

Imagine how many refugees we could have helped with the money spent last night that accomplished nothing. Donald Trump halted accepting refugees from Syria just because he’s hellbent on carrying out his Muslim ban.
The Syrian government anticipated the U.S. military strike. Um, so much for the element of surprise Donald Trump bragged about on the campaign trail.

I thank the NSA for not being willing to go along with a charade that used heroes in the US military for Trump's base distraction politics https://t.co/qp5oOhUfDT

(PICS 1) Notice that the airfield is still usable. Only one of five aircraft shelters was destroyed. "Damaged" shelters mean intact planes. pic.twitter.com/C1ezEitfgz

@Reuters It was all for show! Trump never meant to have this "strike" be anything significant. His ratings are garbage and the noose is tightening.

@Reuters Wait – I thought they were going to cower because of that signal sent by the first strong president in the history of the world?
