On Tuesday night, the Pentagon confirmed that more than a dozen ballistic missiles were launched against U.S. military and coalition forces in Iraq from inside Iran, hitting at least two Iraqi military bases at Al-Assad and Irbil, which host U.S. military and coalition personnel.
In the midst of the attacks, left-wing MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell celebrated the hits from Iran apparently as a strike against President Donald Trump.

Now the dog is wagging Trump.
O’Donnell went on to claim that Trump is “speechless” over the attacks from Iran.
These threats of war crimes & mass murder by Iran make this the most dangerous night in history of American military in the Middle East and the President of the United States has no idea what to say. White House says Trump won't make a statement. He's literally speechless. https://t.co/cVxLtR59rP— Lawrence O'Donnell (@Lawrence) January 8, 2020
If you were thinking the president would say something clarifying or reassuring about this night of worldwide confusion & fear, you were thinking of a different president. https://t.co/lERmpsehES— Lawrence O'Donnell (@Lawrence) January 8, 2020
The hatred for President Trump continues to show that the media hates him more than they worry about American troops and America.
Tuesday night’s hit from Iran comes in response to a Trump-ordered kill of terrorist and Iranian general Qassem Soleimani on Friday via an airstrike near Baghdad International Airport. Soleimani was the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization, and responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans.
