<p>The country&rsquo;s emotions ran high as horrific images flooded in from Syria on Tuesday, where dictator Bashar al-Assad killed dozens and wounded hundreds more in a chemical weapon attack on his own people. &ldquo;Even by the horrors of the Syrian civil war, what happened today will stand out as a crime against humanity,&rdquo; was the first sentence uttered by Anchor Scott Pelley as <em>CBS Evening News</em> came on the air. But he then seemed to insinuate that the blame rested at President Trump&rsquo;s feet.</p>

<p>&ldquo;The attack came five days after the Trump administration signaled that the Syrian dictator would not be held accountable for the slaughter of his people,&rdquo; stated a very serious Pelley, &ldquo;The Trump administration said Bashar al-Assad could remain in power, a reversal of Obama-era policy that said Assad had to go.&rdquo;</p>

<p>&ldquo;Despite the appeasing change in his policy, Mr. Trump blamed today&#39;s attack on President Obama calling it a &lsquo;Consequence of the past administration&#39;s weakness,&rsquo;&rdquo; he continued to chide.</p>

<p>Pelley&rsquo;s claim that the Trump administration was giving a free pass to a murderous monster, had been a <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/30/politics/tillerson-haley-syria-assad-turk… narrative</a> circulating around the liberal media for the past few days. US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley told reporters that when it came to Assad &ldquo;Do we think he&#39;s a hindrance? Yes &hellip; Are we going to sit there and focus on getting him out? No.&rdquo; But Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also stated that the &ldquo;longer-term status of President Assad will be decided by the Syrian people.&rdquo;</p>

<p>Yet when it came to the efforts of former President Barack Obama, who never made a serious attempt to take out Assad after he crossed the infamous &ldquo;red line,&rdquo; CBS defended them from Trump.</p>
