Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) just made a scathing remark on Twitter concerning Trump's horrible handling of the situation in Syria, and returning a verbal jab for Trump's address to Congress in February.

“Delivering one scripted speech before Congress & bombing another country doesn't make you presidential,” Maxine wrote.

She didn't stop there, either, she also attacked Trump for illegally taking this action without the approval of Congress, per the Constitution.

“Assad's unconscionable actions must be addressed through a thoughtful & coherent strategy – w/ Congress. I don't trust Trump w/ that task,” Rep Waters tweeted.

From The Hill:

The U.S. conducted a missiles strike in Syria last week amid reports of a chemical attack there.

Warships fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at an airfield near the Syrian city of Homs on April 7, attempting to damage the air base that purportedly launched the gas attack.

Trump delivered his justification for the strikes to Congress last Saturday, adding that the U.S. is prepared for further military action there if necessary.

“I acted in the vital national security and foreign policy interests of the United States, pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct foreign relations as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive,” he wrote.

Yet, where is the outcry from the right about a president violating the constitution? That's right, they're nowhere to be found…
