We look at what happened in D.C. this week, including reaction to the U.S. military strike on Syria, following a deadly chemical weapons attack earlier this week. President Trump said the attack crossed "a lot of lines for me." He also said, "It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack."

Massachusetts Congressman Seth Moulton responded to Trump's actions. "It's rather ironic that President Trump has shut off America to Syrian refugees, the very victims of these attacks, at the same time as he is shooting Tomahawk missiles at their country," he said.

We talk about what the airstrikes mean as well as the confirmation of Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.
