Trump Just Gave The LAMEST Excuse for His Failed Syria Strike

Amidst reports that Syria is continuing to launch airstrikes from the base that Trump just sent 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles to destroy, President Trump just tweeted out the lamest excuse.

Most people would expect that the aim of a missile strike costing U.S. taxpayers at least $60 million would be to eliminate Syria’s capability to repeat the kind of air-launched chemical weapons atrocity that the strike was responding to.

However, according to The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, within a day of the attack two warplanes “took off from inside the Shayrat base, which is partially back in service, and struck targets near Palmyra.”

In addition, CNN reports that the town in rebel-held Idlib province that was originally hit by the chemical attack was again hit by airstrikes the very day after the U.S. airstrikes.

Of course, the twitter-sphere did not let Trump off the hook easily for his flippant excuse:

Sorry President Trump, but people are not buying your excuses and fabrications!
