Lol, mass murder when done by national leaders like Bush, Blair, Sarkozy, Obama, and the Clintons…

The media in general reacted favorably to Trump’s attack on the Syrian air base — mostly because it was a reasonable reaction to an atrocity committed by Assad, and it was something reasonably Presidential that he did. However, with some fawning exceptions (like NBC News), most media also pointed out that Trump had not obtained any authorization from Congress before ordering the strike. And once it came out that the Russians were notified prior to the attack AND the air base wasn’t even crippled enough to stop another Assad attack less than 24 hours later, this was duly reported.

This hardly counts as “goading” Trump.
