Well over one year into his presidency, Donald Trump on Sunday blamed former President Barack Obama for the latest gas attack in Syria that resulted in the deaths of dozens of women and children.

Following a week in which the President insisted the U.S. end involvement in Syria, pro-government forces and their allies attacked Douma, the last remaining rebel stronghold near the Syrian capital.

Trump was late to criticize the al-Assad government on Sunday morning, choosing instead to launch a broadside at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Washington Post, but when he did, he included, Obama.

“Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price to pay,” Trump tweeted.

He added, “Open area immediately for medical help and verification. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. SICK! If President Obama had crossed his stated Red Line In The Sand, the Syrian disaster would have ended long ago! Animal Assad would have been history!”

This gas attack was the second since Trump became President and he has done little about Syria in the intervening year.

And he's sending out a daily fusillade of emails begging for money, with the alleged goal of overturning the results.

Bernie Sanders is imploring the leadership of the Democratic Party and the incoming Biden administration to aggressively pursue an agenda that confronts powerful special interests, improves people's lives, and exposes the phony populism of President Donald Trump and his Republican allies.

On Wednesday, writing on Twitter, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman invited a Trump supporter accused of voter fraud to apply for a pardon if convicted — in thanks for showing Pennsylvania voters, and Republicans around the country, how difficult it is to commit voter fraud.

The case centers on a man in Forty Fort, Luzerne County, who allegedly filled out an absentee ballot application for his deceased mother with the intention of casting a second ballot for President Donald Trump, in her name. He faces up to 10 years in prison if found guilty.
