I’m just going to say this about the missile strikes in Syria last night: It sucks that Donald Trump is our President during times like these, because we can’t trust his judgment, and — because he’s obsessed with ratings and churning over the news cycle — we can’t know if his intentions here were on the up-and-up. But, this was a James Mattis operation, because Donald Trump doesn’t know what the hell he is doing, and my guess is that Obama and Hillary would have done the same thing: A targetted strike meant to take out chemical weapons with minimum casualties and without, hopefully, embroiling us into World War III.
That said, Jesus, Trump: “Mission Accomplished”?
A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 14, 2018
It’s like you’re determined to jinx us.
It's literally the only 2-word phrase you can't use if you're a President launching military action in the Middle East. He could've ended that tweet with "Elephant Farts!" or "Knuckle Turd!" or any other combination of two words and no one would've really cared.— Ken Tremendous (@KenTremendous) April 14, 2018
Anyway, there is no one angrier about the strikes in Syria than Alex Jones, who went on a rant to end all rants.

That clip was from before he went on air. After he went on air, he cried about Trump’s betrayal, and somehow suggested that custody of his kids was taken away from him because he supported Trump, and now he feels doubly betrayed.

Jones wasn’t the only alt-wingnut to turn against Trump for the action. Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham were also critical.
