In one of the newest White House developments Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy who was a President Obama appointee was forced out by President Trump. He was turned down over Deputy Surgeon General Sylvia Trent-Adams who will now be the acting Surgeon General. She is an African-American female nurse no less. So much for that xenophobia people accuse the President of.
Supporters of the former attorney general are knocking her down for being what they call just a nurse. Even mainstream liberal media are taking passive aggressive jabs at the new Surgeon General. They released an article that was titled, “Dr. Vivek Murthy — an Obama appointee — resigns as Surgeon General, replaced by deputy Sylvia Trent-Adams, a nurse.”

Despite being only a nurse as they called her she also has a Ph.D. which they failed to mention. Probably because it does not fit into their narrative. The New York Times treated her the same way by releasing an article with a similar title reading, “Nurse Replaces Surgeon General After Obama Appointee Resigns.”

They wait until the very last paragraph of the article to note that she has the advanced doctorate degree and was a nurse in the army who was formerly the Deputy Surgeon General. Yet when she was the Deputy Surgeon General who was second in command to her predecessor nobody questioned her history or credentials. If she was good enough then why is she no that ok enough now? Especially considering she would have had the role she currently has, had the former Surgeon General resigned or stepped down.

This woman is a Rear Admiral in the CCPHS. More than qualified to serve as Acting Surgeon General, even as a nursing officer.

She's the Deputy SG. She's temporarily acting SG. Trump didn't "hire" her.

The President could have fired her when his administration began. It isn’t uncommon after all to keep people in high positions such as that when a new administration is being put into place. Which means the President must have confidence in her credentials and capabilities to put her in this position.
Despite the fact that this is a temporary promotion it was the conservative media that went out and applauded Trent-Adams for her promotion to this high position. The same people that liberals call racist, xenophobic, homophobic and every derogatory slur under the sun. If they were all those things why would they be happy at her appointment?
Spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services said,
“Dr. Murthy, the leader of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, was asked to resign from his duties as Surgeon General after assisting in a smooth transition into the new Trump Administration. Dr. Murthy has been relieved of his duties as Surgeon General and will continue to serve as a member of the Commissioned Corps. Secretary [Tom] Price thanks him for his dedicated service to the nation.”
In his own Facebook post, the former Surgeon General said,
“While I had hoped to do more to help our nation tackle its biggest health challenges, I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to have served. For the grandson of a poor farmer from India to be asked by the president to look out for the health of an entire nation was a humbling and uniquely American story. I will always be grateful to our country for welcoming my immigrant family nearly 40 years ago and giving me this opportunity to serve.”
As some users noted, she will be the very first female RN nurse to hold the position she currently holds. Which is a huge milestone in itself. As President Trump said during his campaign he knows how to surround himself with talented people and this is what he is doing. Running his country like a well-oiled machine like he does his business. It certainly worked well for him in business will likely continue to work for this country.
It doesn’t matter that she is a woman, nurse, or African American. Clearly, the President thinks she is the best woman for the job so he appointed her. That should be enough for people especially considering she was originally appointed by President Obama. But liberal progressives will find any excuse under the sun to criticize the President even in a ludicrous and ridiculous situation such as this.
This just shows how little liberals care about equality. They want equality when it suits their needs, benefits, and desires but they don’t when it doesn’t. It is hypocrisy at its absolute finest. If you are against misogyny and xenophobia then you are against it anywhere and everywhere not just when it suits you.
