Celebrities React to Trump's Syrian Missile Attack

And they're almost unilaterally upset.

On the evening of April 6, Donald Trump launched a missile attack on Syria in retaliation for their chemical attack on civilians earlier this week. The missiles struck Syria's Al Shayrat airfield, where the chemical weapons were believed to have been launched.

"On Tuesday, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians," Trump said in a speech at Mar-a-Lago. "Using a deadly nerve agent, Assad choked out the life of innocent men, women, and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many, even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror."

Regardless of whether or not Trump made the right call to launch missiles (Note that he didn't clear it with Congress), the hypocrisy of this move is hard to ignore. Not only did Trump attempt to ban immigrants earlier this year, he told Obama not to attack Syria in a series of tweets back in 2013. As a result, the internet—and celebrities—are speaking out.
