Hollywood celebrities blamed President Donald Trump for Iran’s attack Tuesday evening, in which over a dozen missiles were fired at Iraqi bases hosting U.S. troop — though no casualties were reported.

The missiles were fired in retaliation for Trump’s successful airstrike against Iranian terror mastermind Qasim Soleimani last week, who had been behind an escalation of attacks on Americans in Iraq, both civilian and military, including the U.S. embassy.
