In 2013, Donald Trump was perfectly fine with chemical attacks in Syria. So fine, in fact, that he sent more than a dozen tweets explaining how America should stay out of it and reminding everyone that those people dying from sarin nerve gas were no angels.

But after railing that Obama should stay out of Syria, stay out of Syria, and stay out of Syria despite the fact that more than 1,400 people had died in that earlier chemical weapons attack, Trump's tiny heart finally thawed after an attack an order of magnitude smaller. Why?

Everyone's favorite Sopranos bit character has the answer.

Trump's 33-year-old son, Eric, told The Daily Telegraph on Monday that the strike was influenced in part by Ivanka, who he said was "heartbroken and outraged" by the chemical attack.

Sure. There were people who thought that Ivanka might convince her daddy dearest that climate change wasn't a Chinese hoax, or that women were also human beings. Nuh-uh.

But apparently he will fire missiles at her command.
