Josh Gad, Trevor Noah Sophia Bush and George Takei are among those in Hollywood calling out President Donald Trump's "hypocrisy" for his decision to launch an air strike on Syria Thursday.
"My God. Just my God. Hypocrisy is a tremendous thing," tweeted Gad.
The "Beauty and the Beast" star was referencing this old Trump tweet: "What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long term conflict? Obama needs Congressional approval."
Bush found another tweet that "has not aged well."
Be prepared, there is a small chance that our horrendous leadership could unknowingly lead us into World War III.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 31, 2013
"Daily Show" host Noah tweeted, "It's sad that politicians can't find money for education, clean water or healthcare but they can spend millions to 'send a message to Syria.'"
Takei, on the other hand, took Trump to task for avenging deaths of Syrian people through a missile attack, but not allowing refugees of the war-torn country into the United States.
In a speech from his Mar a Lago resort on Thursday, Trump cited Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad's "horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians" as the reasoning for the strike.
"Using a deadly nerve agent, Assad choked out the life of innocent men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many, even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror," Trump said.
"It is in this vital, national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons," the President added. "There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the U.N. Security Council."

Moved enough by innocent casualties to excuse bombing them, but not enough to accept refugees. War is a game of hypocrisy & greed #Syria— Lauren Jauregui (@LaurenJauregui) April 7, 2017
