Some of Donald Trump's most fervent supporters in the media turned on the president Friday over his decision to launch military strikes against Syria in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack.
On Fox News, hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham were uncharacteristically critical of the president, questioning Trump's decision to launch the strikes.

"I guess it feels good because there are horrible things happening there," Ingraham said, sparring with former White House official Sebastian Gorka. "But what do we really accomplish here tonight in Syria? This is not why Donald Trump got elected."
Noting Trump's criticism of the Iraq war on the 2016 campaign trail, Carlson remarked "This is clearly not something he ran on, and and it's inconsistent with a lot of things that he's said over the years."
