Syria Strikes: Twitter Scorches John McCain, Lindsey Graham for Asking Americans to Rally Around Trump

McCain and Graham said in a joint statement: “Unlike the previous administration, President Trump confronted a pivotal moment in Syria and took action. For that, he deserves the support of the American people. Building on tonight’s credible first step, we must finally learn the lessons of history and ensure that tactical success leads to strategic progress.”

“That means following through with a new, comprehensive strategy in coordination with our allies and partners to end the conflict in Syria. The first measure in such a strategy must be to take Assad’s air force—which is responsible not just for the latest chemical weapons attack, but countless atrocities against the Syrian people—completely out of the fight. We must also bolster support for the vetted Syrian opposition and establish safe zones to address the ongoing humanitarian crisis. As we do, we can and must continue the campaign to achieve ISIS’s lasting defeat.”

Mr. Trump may have sent a message but it was blunted by the fact that he notified Russia, who in turn notified Syria and some assets were moved from the airfield in anticipation of the attack.

Um, that didn’t sit well with many on Twitter and they scorched Graham and McCain:
