In the liberals’ latest post-modern-relativism effort to trash on President Trump, they’ve targeted newly appointed acting-Surgeon General Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams.
As a black, female woman, those profile points should satisfy the everyday liberal, yes? Conservatives definitely approve of one accruing the following accolades: Ph.D., Rear Admiral, Deputy Surgeon General, US Army nurse.
However, Trent-Adams apparently has one, crucial point against her—one that fuels hate in all liberals: President Trump chose her. Because of this, and while she’s just the acting SG, her Trump appointment contaminates her aforementioned accomplishments. Rather than being pleasantly surprised and throwing the president a few points, liberal would rather manipulate the facts—in their favor.
Biz Pac Review had the key points:
“Trump asked Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, an Obama holdover, to step down. In his place, the president promoted Deputy Surgeon General Sylvia Trent-Adams as acting surgeon general.
Instead of applauding President Trump for elevating a black, female nurse to the post, leftists attacked Dr. Trent-Adams’ credentials, saying 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.’”
Despite such a glorious moment, both ABC and The New York Times took their turn at digs—Trent-Adams being the sacrificial lamb. Imagine the The Times’ EIC with a shit-eating grin while publishing the article featuring this headline: “Nurse Replaces Surgeon General After Obama Appointee Resigns.”
The Times’ waited until the end of their article to cite Trent-Adams being more than qualified for the position—she has her Ph.D., was a US Army nurse and served as deputy surgeon general.
Then there was ABC’s cheap-shot Tweet:

At least somebody slapped ABC about it:
“@ABC But the word ‘Surgeon’ is in the title. Doesn’t that mean something? Or am I being too literal-minded?” — fakeJenRauls (@jenrauls) April 22, 2017
Although Sylvia Trent-Adams is very accomplished, the title of @Surgeon_General indicates physician.

Others saw the the B.S. and made note…

To clarify, the liberals definitely accepted Sylvia Trent-Adams as Deputy Surgeon General when Obama reigned. However, because President Trump recommended her for the top spot, suddenly she’s too subpar for the job. Technically, Surgeon Generals direct policy, which doesn’t mandate her to be a “surgeon”—like the title implies. It’s highly probably non-surgical doctors of old have taken up this mantle.
It might be someone else might end up with the permanent position of Surgeon General—Trent-Adams is responsibly fulfilling her duty as “acting.” Nevertheless, folks ultimately need to shut their mouths and realize this woman has accomplished quite a feat upon devoting much of her life to her country.
Acting Surgeon General Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams, we salute and support you!
