Prominent supporters of President Trump broke with his decision to launch airstrikes against Syria on Friday over last weekend apparent chemical weapons attack, slamming the move as overly aggressive and unnecessary.
Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham both spoke out against Trump’s decision to strike during their shows Friday night.
Carlson noted that the move was inconsistent with the president’s message during his 2016 campaign, and Ingraham said she found that intervention in other countries could be risky as shown in the Iraq War, according to The Daily Beast.
Michael Savage, a prominent conservative radio host and author, tweeted that “sad warmongers are hijacking our nation” in the wake of the strike.
Infowars’ Alex Jones broke down in tears while speaking out against the military action.
“If he had been a piece of crap from the beginning, it wouldn’t be so bad,” Jones said of Trump. “We’ve made so many sacrifices and now he’s crapping all over us. It makes me sick." 
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter also shared her opposition to the strike, retweeting a series of other conservative or right-wing figures who condemned the move and resurfacing Trump's own past tweets against military action in Syria.
And far-right figures Mike Cernovich and Laura Loomer also ripped Trump over the military strike in Syria.
