Old Twitter posts from Joe Biden and one of his most senior aides - both attacking President Donald Trump - reemerged on Thursday after the White House ordered airstrikes against an Iran-backed militia stronghold in Syria.

The anti-Trump posts from the two Democrats weren't appearing to age well.

In 2017, now-White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki questioned what the Trump administration’s "legal authority for strikes" was in Syria.

Her comments were a response to a Trump-ordered military action, similar to one Biden ordered this week.

"Assad is a brutal dictator," Psaki tweeted, "But Syria is a sovereign country."

When Psaki’s nearly four-year-old tweet resurfaced, many Twitter users appreciated the irony.

"Hey girl! guessing you circled back to this one, huh?" one user wrote.

"Great tweet," another person commented.

"I look forward to you condemning @JoeBiden's illegal strikes in your press conference tomorrow."

Even progressive U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) retweeted Psaki's old post, writing sarcastically: "Great question." 

In April 2017, the Trump administration launched airstrikes against Syria in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack the Assad regime carried out against its own people.

In October 2019, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden called President Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Northern Syria "erratic" and "impulsive."

"The events of the past week … have had devastating clarity of just how dangerous this president is," Biden said during a speech in Iowa about Trump’s decision, which critics saw as "abandoning" Kurdish allies in the region. 

In Thursday’s attack, the Biden administration targeted Iraqi border-based Shia militia groups, Kait’ib Hezbollah and Kait’ib Sayyid al Shuhada, which are suspected of having received funding and military support from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard.

A senior official said the strike was a "shot across the bow" and a defensive strategy, intended to deter Iran and its militia from launching rockets at U.S. forces in the region, like the recent attacks in Iraq.
