Hollywood stars blamed President Donald Trump for Iran’s attack Tuesday night, in which over a lots missiles were fired at Iraqi bases hosting U.S. troop– though no casualties were reported.
The missiles were fired in retaliation for Trump’s effective airstrike versus Iranian fear mastermind Qasim Soleimani recently, who had been behind an escalation of attacks on Americans in Iraq, both civilian and military, including the U.S. embassy.

Singer and starlet Bette Midler:
With all due regard, Mr Adams, you are dumb as a brick. Iran is countless years old, enormous, & 70 %of its people are under 50, now whipped into a frenzy of hate. That’s what your idiot “man in control” has actually done. He’s “cocked and loaded” and you’re just a suckup. https://t.co/OdEIaiwNnf

Filmmaker Michael Moore:
Keep in mind– everything you speak with Trump and his cronies about Iran, like whatever else he says, is a lie. Fortunately lots of in the media tonight are saying the exact same thing regarding his lies about this war. We should withstand. We must speak up. We should NOT duplicate the lies. War! STOP!

Airborne Hazardous Event lead singer Mikel Jollett:
Before Trump, Iran was adhering to the points of the nuclear offer and nowhere near war with the United States.
Since of Trump’s absolute idiocy, it is now firing rockets at US troops and we are getting dragged into a pointless CATASTROPHE: an unneeded and preventable war.

Star John Cusack:
If Iran strikes did not cause casualties its still possible to avoid larger war.
Trump will try again once again– as his impeachment looms and the walls close in- to go to war to avoid justice–
