President Obama announced this morning that the U.S. military had begun dropping bombs in Iraq against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which has been brutally murdering Iraqis.
CNN previously reported that ISIS has "morphed into the world's most dangerous jihadist organization."
But that didn't seem to matter to viewers of "Live with Kelly and Michael," who were furious when ABC cut away from the talk show while Michael Strahan was interviewing Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton to cover the U.S. military action in the Middle East, notes Mediaite.com (video below).
According to UpRoxx.com, some of the Twitter reactions included:
