On Saturday, ABC News reported that Vivek Murthy, the U.S. Surgeon General under the Obama Administration, was removed from his post by the Trump administration, elevating his deputy, Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams, a black female registered nurse who, by the way, holds a Ph.D., something ABC News failed to mention in its report.
“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,” said Department of Health and Human Services spokesperson Alleigh Marré in a statement. “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.”
Even though ABC never mentioned her Ph.D., the report further said:
In addition to her duties as deputy Surgeon General, Trent-Adams also served as the chief nurse officer of the U.S. Public Health Service from November 2013 through May 2016. In this role, she advised the Office of the Surgeon General and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on the recruitment, assignment, deployment, retention, and career development of Corps nurse professionals.
Prior to joining the Office of the Surgeon General, Trent-Adams was the deputy associate administrator for the HIV/AIDS Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration.
Naturally, the liberal hate machine sprang into action, trashing the acting Surgeon General.

It was a forced resignation due to change of Administration. Replacement is good but a nurse, hopefully, this is temporary!

Yes, a registered nurse with a Ph.D., so you can, technically, call her “Doctor,” even though she may not have a medical degree.
And it’s interesting to note that no one seemed to have a problem when she was named to be Murthy’s deputy. Apparently, it only matters because of the current occupant of the White House.
You’re being too literal minded.
The New York Times further bleated: “Nurse Replaces Surgeon General After Obama Appointee Resigns.”
And, BizPac Review said, the Times never mentioned her education until the very last paragraph.

That must be the reason…
