Schumer And Pelosi Break From Colleagues, Back Trump’s Missile Strike On Syria


Senate and House minority leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have moved away from their Democratic colleagues by endorsing President Donald Trump’s missile strike on Syria.

“Making sure Assad knows that when he commits such despicable atrocities he will pay a price is the right thing to do,” Schumer said in a statement, ABC News reports.

“It is incumbent on the Trump administration to come up with a strategy and consult with Congress before implementing it. I salute the professionalism and skill of our Armed Forces who took action today,” Schumer added.

Pelosi had much of the same reaction, calling the Tomahawk missile strike ordered by Trump against the al-Shayrat military base in Syria a “proportional response to the regime’s use of chemical weapons.”

  1. PDT attack was for show only, which is why the Dems like it. The Russians were given a heads-up by PDT before the attack. PDT suspects the Chem attack was a jihadi false flag, and he is trying to avoid being drawn in against Assad, while mollifying the euroleft warhawks at the same time.

    It makes no sense for Assad to do this the week after Trump stated that regime change in Syria is not a US goal. I’m not buying the “Vizzini” that Assad did the chem attack to forestall an agreement between Russia and the US which would be detrimental to Assad. This was jihadi snuff propaganda.

  2. So much for PRESIDENT Trump being Putin’s bitch, right Chuck & Nancy?

    No wonder they’re hightailing it to kiss PRESIDENT Trump’s ass. 🤣

  3. There’s LOTS of (non conspiracy) sites pointing out the oddities of this supposed chemical attack. That it was staged. (like the first responders not wearing gloves, I guess that’s a dead giveaway)

    So, yeah this was more 4D chess. Perhaps the people that staged the attack (if it was staged) were using that base.

    Either way, DJT spent 59 missiles to send a message.

  4. BULL SHIT! Next month they will be calling Trump a baby killer and a war monger. Don’t trust these shitpickle cockweasles.

  5. well if I wasn’t bothered enough with trump for doing this pelosi and schumer signing on really drives home the point this is not what it appears to be.

    hang on it’s going to get much bumpier.

  6. We can’t know if Assad was responsible for this chemical attack or if it was a false flag. All we can do is evaluate the effectiveness of the attack:
    1. The target was military with no civilians involved. The airfield- where the chemical attack supposedly came from – was destroyed.
    2. Trump did NOT respond by droning civilians as Obama did.
    3. This sent a message not only to Assad but to Putin (how’s that Putin’s bitch narrative selling?), North Korea and Chinese PM Xi who Trump was hosting that America’s back. All those countries have been rattling swords to test Trump. All those countries respect strength. I would have loved to be sitting next to Xi at that dinner.
    4. This tells the white hats in the military and the few remaining in intelligence that Trump is the leader they’ve been yearning for since Reagan. I expect to hear more info leaked from the white hats supporting Trump’s wiretap claims—and MORE.

    While some Trump supporters may be unhappy by the strike on Syria, this is a major win for Trump with no downside. How can any liberal argue that Trump should not have taken action when little children we callously poisoned with Sarin gas? What liberal is going to stand next to a picture of dead children and say Trump should have ignored it?

    The cost was strictly military and everyone’s OK with destroying military targets.

    The bad guys got the answer to their test – limp wristed America hating Obama is not in charge anymore. Trespass at your own risk.

    The media lost their Putin’s bitch narrative.

    Obama admin is proven to have lied, again, about chemical weapons in Syria. Rice and Kerry both assured the world in 2013 and 2014 that they made Assad get rid of his chemical weapons as their reason for not taking stronger action when Assad crossed Obama’s multiple red lines.

    We know that Trump took this action with the full knowledge if not at the urging of Egypt & Jordan who just visited and the UAE and Israel.

    At this moment I see this as Trump winning bigly on all scores. If this is as far as we have to go in Syria, it will prove to have been a brilliant move militarily and politically.

  7. I think we may be over thinking this. The region has been in conflict for a long time and gassing people is a war crime. Also, Russia invading Crimea and Ukraine was an act of war. This shot over the bow tells all players in the middle east and Asia that Trump is going to pussy foot. It sends a strong message to the pussies in congress that Trump is going to execute as commander in chief when he sees fit. All in all I am pleased with this move. Obama let atrocities be committed in Syria with his “red lines” that had no teeth. Asad is not a good egg, but I’m sure he could have easily been targeted in this surprise rebuttal.

  8. Phil,
    This isn’t about the middle east or the Crimea, it’s about an out of control federal government, using powers not granted to it by the Constitution, to fly air support for the jihad in Syria.

  9. Wonder what they told Pelosi to trick her into saying something smart for a change. Schumer, on the other hand, probably got his advice for focus groups and polling firms. Neither one of those two idiots have this country’s best interest at heart.

  10. As of today, Pelousy and Slumlor had no choice but to agree with Trump’s actions. Just like Muslims, they can lie.

  11. A couple of US missiles fired at Gaddafi, and he hunkered down and stayed harmless for the rest of his reign.
    Assad is well aware those 60 missiles could just as easily dropped on his bedroom as on his airfield.
    Regardless of false flags or other ploys, Trump just successfully sent a no-warning-shots message to NoKo, Iran, etc.

    I would expect a new level of compliance from Assad re: creating safe zones for his refugees in EU to be “repatriated” to.
