The administration of President Joe Biden launched an airstrike on Syria killing an estimated 22 people according to the Syria Observatory for Human Rights. The strike was intended to disrupt Iranian-backed forces in the region after several rocket attacks on a US-backed coalition base in Erbil, Iraq.
Reaction to the strike has been a mixed bag on television and social media. Partisan Democrats who opposed Trump for his strike on Syria with fewer casualties praised Biden for his strike. Other Democrats appeared disillusioned with the current administration, asking for an explanation for the airstrike instead of the promised stimulus checks. Then, of course, the is the question of an economic impact. With gas steadily rising in price since Inauguration Day, many are left wondering if gas will continue to rise higher.

Cenk Uygur on Twitter: “So, @JoeBiden bombs Syria and kills the minimum wage hike, confirming every fear progressives had. Soon they’ll renege on getting $2000 checks to everyone in the middle class by limiting who gets it (to appease their donors). The establishment is back! And it absolutely sucks.” / Twitter
