Earlier tonight, President Trump impulsively launched a barrage of Tomahawk missiles at airfields, radar sites, and military depots used by the Syrian government in retribution for the regime’s recent sarin gas attack on Khan Sheikhoun.
One group in particular, is very upset at his decision – his most loyal fans. The alt-right, which adores Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and has been working overtime to promote the outrageous narrative that the gas attack was carried out by George Soros-linked al-Qaeda groups, is horrified by his actions.

While the consequences of Trump’s actions tonight could be momentous, we can take some small satisfaction in the knowledge that Trump’s most ardent fans are now grappling with the harsh realization that he was playing them the whole time.
