Trump suddenly cares about Syrian babies

We are supposed to believe that Donald Trump has an aversion to civilian casualties in wartime.

Yesterday’s chemical attack, a chemical attack so horrific in Syria against innocent people including women, small children, and even beautiful little babies, their deaths was an affront to humanity.

That would be a perfectly normal response from a normal leader.  But coming from the guy who falsely said this:

We have to stop the tremendous flow of Syrian refugees into the United States.  We don’t know who they are. They have no documentation and we don’t know what they’re planning.

about those same women and children.  Trump is the guy who suspended the refugee program, specifically turning Syrians away in violation of the 1951 Refugee Convention.

Not only was he not bothered by the deaths of 93,000 Syrian civilians during the six years of the Syrian civil war, he specifically called on President Obama to leave Syria alone, not once but more than a dozen times.

He encouraged people to hate when it suited his short term political needs.  Now his short term political need is to go to war against Syria, so he pretends to care about babies long enough to launch the missiles.
