Just when you thought the left couldn’t get more duplicitous, they do.
On Saturday, President Trump asked Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, an Obama appointee, to step down.
Murthy resigned, and immediately the commander-in-chief put in a replacement.
He promoted Deputy Surgeon General Sylvia Trent-Adams, making her acting surgeon general — it’s worth noting that she is a certified, African American nurse.
However, it seems that wasn’t good enough for the left, as they scolded the president and attacked Trent-Adams’ credentials.
Instead of thanking President Trump for elevating a black, female nurse to the post, leftists decided to say that she’s “just a nurse.” Obviously, Trump’s promotion of a black woman doesn’t fit the liberal media narrative that he’s a “racist misogynist.”
In contrast, Trump supporters — whom mainstream media have repeatedly blasted as racist and sexist — applauded Trent-Adams’ promotion. Even if it’s temporary (which we’re still not sure of), it’s still a milestone.
Congratulations to Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams being appointed Acting @Surgeon_General
