There is no pleasing liberals if you are President Donald Trump.
No matter what Trump does, liberals will criticize him and find a way to spin the story into a negative.
Over the weekend, the Obama-era Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy was forced out by Trump and Deputy Surgeon General Sylvia Trent-Adams was appointed as his replacement.
Trent-Adams is a Ph.D holding nurse of African-American descent.
The liberal media immediately criticized Trump and his decision to appoint a “nurse” as the Surgeon General.

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

A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services issued the following statement:
“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.”
Murthy himself made the following post on Facebook:
“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.”
What is most shocking about this entire story is the fact that liberals were so overly critical of Trump’s pick because she previously worked as a nurse. They conveniently hid the fact that she has obtained a Ph.D and that she has dedicated years of her life in the medical field.
This is just another case of liberals trying to divide our country on every single issue that they can.
