President Trump approving the airstrike that killed Quds leader Qassem Soleimani and Iranâs subsequent firing of rockets at U.S. bases inside Iraq has caused many Democrats to sound as if theyâre spokespeople for the Ayatollah. Some are even refusing to blame Iran for shooting down a passenger jet over their own country, opting instead to say Trumpâs at fault. This has all culminated in congressional Democrats taking an approach clearly designed to portray Trump as a warmonger:
House Democrats on Thursday will deliver a powerful rebuke of President Trumpâs war-making powers amid the ongoing crisis with Iran https://t.co/V4nwaiHlkr

Eight Democrats broke with their party to vote against the Iran War Powers resolution â an effort to restrain President Trump's ability to use military action against Iran without congressional approval â that passed the House of Representatives. https://t.co/c5Iu6SZXwO

Brit Hume rolled his eyes at the âpowerful rebukeâ report:
âPowerfulâ my a**. Itâs nonbiinding and going nowhere. https://t.co/5mkSG7NjqW

Itâs purely symbolic, not that the MSM wonât continue to push the âpowerful rebukeâ narrative.
Greg Gutfeld also swatted down the Democratsâ effort to paint Trump as a warmonger, and used the New York Times to do so:
"Love or hate him, Trump has used military force less than any other president since Jimmy Carter." â today's Times.
(which is why when he uses force, critics need to latch onto it and hysterically amplify it â because it's rare).

That quote is from a David Brooks column published today.

Irony and accuracy at the same time. https://t.co/zjpJL0EOrw

One thingâs for sure: The Democrats (and their stenographers in the media) are completely off the rails.
