Trump asked an Obama appointed surgeon to step down. In General Dr. Vivek Murthy’s place, the president promoted Deputy Surgeon General Sylvia Trent-Adams as acting surgeon general.
Instead of applauding POTUS for elevating a black, female nurse to the post, leftists went on the attack targeting Dr. Trent-Adams’ credentials. Saying things like she’s “just a nurse.”
Aren’t liberals supposed to be the champion for all successful, career focused women?
Isn’t it sacrilegious of them to be critical of a black woman… who is successful?
ABC News started the dissing with a VERY disparaging tweet:
“Dr. Vivek Murthy — an Obama appointee — resigns as Surgeon General, replaced by deputy Sylvia Trent-Adams, a nurse.”

Then the NYTimes chimed in:
BTW… liberals should know that Obama had appointed her to the initial post held before being promoted.
Any who, other snowflakes started giving their pathetic opinions on her promotion.
@ABC But the word "Surgeon" is in the title. Doesn't that mean something? Or am I being too literal-minded?

Although Sylvia Trent-Adams is very accomplished, the title of @Surgeon_General indicates physician.

@ABC Trump surrounds himself with people he can control. ….a nurse has no real knowledge of science or medicine. …

Trump supporters, whom the MSM slandered as sexist, racists, hit back at the haters by giving applause to Trent-Adams’ appointment.
