President Donald Trump continues to clean house by replacing all of the former administration's holdovers.

Last week, President Trump asked U.S. Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy to resign. On Friday, Trump appointed Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams as acting U.S. Surgeon General. Trent-Adams is one of the first registered nurses to hold such an esteemed position.

According to the AJC.com, Trent-Adams served as Deputy Surgeon General under Murthy, and she has held various positions within the Department of Health and Human Services.

Dr. Trent-Adams is a graduate of Hampton University and the University of Maryland. She holds a PhD and a Masters degree in nursing and health policy.

Despite her lofty academic achievements, liberals complain that she is not as qualified as Murthy.

The NY Times reported that Murthy's wife claimed her husband was fired after he refused to resign.

Murthy was favored by former President Obama because of his pro gun control and anti vaping opinions.

The liberal media was quick to pounce. "NURSE REPLACES SURGEON GENERAL" screamed Friday's NY Times headline.

ABC News tweeted that Murthy was replaced by "a nurse".

"Surgeon General Vivek Murthy Didn't Get Enough Time to Do What He Wanted", reads a Forbes magazine headline.

Friday's Western Journalism headline mocked the left's fake outrage: "Trump Stirs Controversy By Naming Black Woman To Succeed Obama’s Surgeon General".

The leftwing media fails to mention that Dr. Trent-Adams was appointed to her position by Barack Obama.

    lol dude really can't win.

  • Elevated Soul

    The Alt left is out of their raggedy minds....

    They couldn't play the "race card',so they say that a BLACK WOMAN is not qualified, and of course the NEGROES in that party go right along with the deception,because she was picked by President Trump.

  • MookieFly

    Looks like she got more of those Lego pieces than him on her uniform so it checks out to me ??

  • Kanyade

    Sometimes nurses know more (common sense wise) than the doctors they have to work under. I have no problem with this but I see others do because it is more of a hierarchy thing of doctors>nurses.

  • Cheese eggs

    I got nothing.

  • Renee26

    Good for her! I hope she's able to remain in the roll

  • Renee26

    Lol @ Lego pieces

  • Yoni7

    I can't see a pic (if there is one). But the visual. LOL

    What has Trump accomplished during his first 100 days?

  • Jen_no_juice

    Congrats Sylvia! May you be an inspiration to young girls

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Lol. Let's all wait

  • Jen_no_juice

    Lmao @ Lego pieces. I'm not about to play with you this morning

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    According to the AJC.com, Trent-Adams served as Deputy Surgeon General under Murthy

    This sounds like 'Trump logic'.

    It makes no sense., but as long as Sandra is happy then I guess I am happy.

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    So... are you practically admitting that this is a conservative blog?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The deadline is Saturday.

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Why are you happy because she's happy?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I was being sarcastic.

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Standing for what's right is inspirational

  • Jen_no_juice

    He hired more ICE workers, deported folks, banned folks, given alternative facts, got bids to build a wall. .. oh you meant positive accomplishments?

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Oh.

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    Lol. I'm reading this like...damn, that's a lot of subtraction, which could be good.

  • RespectSelf

    I'm wondering why this is so important for folks. Most President aren't really being define or remembered for actions made in their first 100 days anyway.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Because sometimes Sandra's logic well leaves much to be desired.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    She is not qualified.

  • Jen_no_juice

    But how do you know? Was her resume posted for folks to see?

  • iWasteTime

    How did he replace the Surgeon General with their deputy.
    The Surgeon General is still from the Obama administration.
    How can he take and be given credit for it?

    Anything to detract from the 100 day flop I see.
    All we heard about from Nov 11th to Jan 19th was what would happen in the first 30 and 100 Days. I know he's golfed 19 times in those 100 days though.

  • hottlanta

    Great distraction Sandra. Don't wanna talk about how Dump privately met those 2 guys from Columbia at Cub Med than at the White House last week. They just happen to be there last Saturday the same time Dump was there playing golf with a friend at Club Med. Dump didn't get to go this weekend he took himself and his prostitute wife to give awards to vets at the hospital trying to look all Presidential. He should have said thank you so much for taking my place fighting for this country while I had 5 fake deferments to keep from going to war so I can play golf. Still laughing at how he recused a lady that was captured in Egypt when he said during the election about John McCain people that got captured to him are hot heroes he like people that doesn't get captured. Dump you make us so proud.

  • hottlanta

    I was reading one of his speech transcripts and he has accomplished to be the most non speaking President to use broken English by a President in 100 days.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Ahhhh, yeah.....been that way just more open lately, more so since Obama

  • hottlanta

    He said himself how he was gonna achieve so much in 100 days and yes he did he is starting 3 wars. Broke a world record.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    AHHHHHH....GOTTEN US TO THE BRINK OF WW3.

  • hottlanta

    You forgot to say he signed executive orders and while folks were clapping but he signed for us to drink brown water, breathe bad air, took away Dodd Frank and selling our browser history to other companies. Folks stood behind him grinning and going on like Dump is doing something great.

  • hottlanta

    Yep great intellect to have dinner and folks around you on cellphones in public giving you a briefing and the second time you started a war over chocolate cake but you don't know where the warship is going. We gonna bomb the wrong country because he learned about Korea in 10 minutes from the Chinese instead of talking to his own foreign intelligence team.

  • Scromes1212

    Can't wait to see how they flip this one smh

  • klwbaby

    I have been around nurses and doctors my entire life and that's a correct statement that nurses know WAY more than the doctors.

  • Rayne

    Is it still gonna read the same message on the cigarette box? What's Finna change?

  • hottlanta

    Dump isn't qualified. But that didn't stop folks for voting for him. Talking bout they didn't want a politician but they rather settle for an idiot. His supporters who want that wall let them pay for it and leave the rest of us out of it. Like I have always said, Mexicans ain't trying to jump a wall to live around poor trashy white people. They rather stay in Mexico.

  • klwbaby

    This actually is the first time I can recall the first 100 days being so important. But I think it was trump who started "I have accomplished this much in this number of days rant"....

  • 2brefrank

    Ah, who cares!!

  • Nonya Bizness

    A Rear admiral is equivalent to a 2 Star General in other military branches. That's a huge deal. Some people will never be happy and always find something to complain about.

  • Blak

    A nurse practitioner or clinical nurse, is just as qualified and educated to give a medical opinion on things such as public and family health and health care policy. A minimum of 8 years, plus significant clinical hours as a nurse is required to get a doctorate in nursing, it's not just handed out and she probably has just as much, if not more policy and clinical experience then he has. People should be excited that a nurse, who has a more holistic point of view on care, will be making decisions related to health care. The idea of states expanding the scope of practice for family nurse practitioners especially will ensure that even the lower economical class will have access to affordable health care. This to me is amazing news

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The point is that she is Murthy's deputy which means she was also appointed by Obama so what is the point of replacing him with her?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    iWasteTime: How did he replace the Surgeon General with their deputy.

    The Surgeon General is still from the Obama administration.

    That is why people are upset--Trump was being petty by replacing Murthy.

  • TOO REAL

    Just because she's black people shouldn't complain? Is that what you are saying Sandy. Trust me, when you die these white people will not be at your funeral for all the ass kissing you do.

  • MookieFly

    What I do? Lol

  • Just An Observation

    Freedom of speech must be nice even for the ignorant.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Didn't he say Congratulations and Tremendous, followed by a clap on the back and kiss on his wife's cheek.........

    (Dude face is like---Wait, What? Are you serious?) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/47bc7e9d9d3755c43e95c7039dae6e74357e21fb7f4143633ad0fd37042b7b58.jpg

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    According to dump and his minions or should this answer be truthful?!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    She is much more controllable than he was.
    She ain't even smart enough to see that she is being used. Too busy being proud that she (a nurse) is replacing a doctor.

  • OP2

    The difference: Unlike him...She DID NOT make the outrageous & irresponsible (unsound) statements such as gun violence is a health issues (to avoid personal accountability). She Did Not politicize drugs (to avoid pointing to flawed character and holding snowflakes accountable for being dealers and users) by calling it a disease and health epidemic.

    -it is an insult to those who actually have a disease or cancer or medical condition which can be tested and proven via blood work or an MRI, etc.

    No one ever says hey give me a bag of disease with a side order of cancer. They sneak around to buy and sell drugs and then lie about when caught.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL.
    You're so eager to place blame and make a moral judgment that you don't see it from a medical perspective.
    All doctors like Murthy see are the bloodied and broken bodies that end up in ERs due to gun violence that they have to repair and the same with drug addicts.
    Doctors don't ask how/why they got there just that they want people to get better and usually there are underlying causes for drug addictions but you're too busy throwing stones at people to care.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I prefer my nurses to my doctor anytime...they seem like they know more and are just simply kinder.

  • OP2

    She is not being used. -he was fired and she was next in line.

    She is an ranked Admiral (a GOAT). A powerful top highest ranking position in the federal gov't which is much higher than being a nurse! -and you don't get there by being a dummy (simple-minded & all emotional and without insight, vision, intellect with the ability to see right through people).

    In addition, you have to well-educated and highly ambitious military officer to move up the ladder to that powerful position.

    -she has 2 masters degrees and a Doctorate. Well-Qualified!!

    Sorry, but not all Black folks are snowflake liberals with a dysfunctional slave mentality trapped on a plantation maze. A number of Black military men/women; entrepreneurs and conservative Christians vote Republican. -they are aware of history or that the southern Dems created the dysfunctional crime-riddled modern day plantation (hoods with handouts) to set minorities up for failure. Dems created the triple K and slave patrollers; J1m Cr0w laws and that the Republicans fought hard alongside the slaves to free them from the southern Demon-craps massas. ijs

  • OP2

    Simple. Fire that person...then the next one in line gets the position. ;)

  • Ryan

    Conservatives are a bunch of danged nasty little crybabies. Always complaining about liberal this and liberal that. Go do some volunteer work or something and make yourselves useful to society for once in your lives. That might actually make you happier and take some of that edge off.

  • Julia Lyons

    The best medical treatment I ever received was under the care of a Nurse Practitioner.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Dr. Trent-Adams is a graduate of Hampton University and the University of Maryland. She holds a PhD and a Masters degree in nursing and health policy.
    ==================================================Sounds qualified to me..... Hopefully, she can do some good and make real change that benefits all of us...

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!! Ain't nothing changing with them cancer sticks..... Nothing but the increase in price....

  • OP2

    Not all doctors are created equal. Take a look at a number of them who have committed heinous crimes or have deviant behaviors. -he allowed himself to used as a political tool to make a statement that is unSOUND and not scientific just to cover up or push an agenda.

    Only a snowflake would see it as throwing stones. Plenty of doctors will say gun violence is a character flaw (a dysfunctional cultural mentality or deviant individual). It is only a health issue in the sense that the victim and criminals need bullets removed or to be stitched up, etc.

    Otherwise, it is a choice. Sneaking around to buy, sell and use drugs is a CHOICE. To steal, buy and use a gun to murder someone is a thought-process that often requires plottin' & plannin...therefore, it too is a CHOICE.

    Gun violence, selling and using drugs is not a disease or cancer which can be detected like most cancers and diseases in a bloodlab or MRI, etc. -no one says hey "give me a bag of disease with a side order of tumors, cancer, etc. -what an insult!!

    He needed to be fired!! -onto sound judgement and commonsense as a replacement!

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!! Come on!!! Give us sumthing!!!!

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!

  • hottlanta

    Yep he will probably play pimp my vet again at his address to the nation speech again like the last time he pimped that vet widow and say you broke the world record with the longest clap thanks to him.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I wasn't talking to you.....hence my comment is under Roderick's.

  • hottlanta

    Sandy somebody been reading the dictionary again and using a big word like "lofty" as if she isn't qualified but says Dump is a successful businessman even though he has filed bankruptcy 6 times and owe a lot of debt. Folks wanted to see President Obama birth certificate but don't wanna see Dump's college transcripts. You know if Dump got a note to not got to war, he got a note to graduate college as well. His folks should have carpel tunnel by now writing him all them notes to pass him through life.

  • AriesSun

    Great comment. Snowflakes will never get it.

  • AriesSun

    It's not about her being Black. It's about the pattern of your party to deem anyone picked by a Republican as racist but since they couldn't in this case,they deemed this woman unqualified and that seems mighty racist to me

  • Lisa daniels

    I feel that she will get Colin Powelled. ?

  • NicoleZee

    Really?? I think nurses are trained to be more caring, but I've met some great and compassionate doctors along the way. I'd rather have a doctor's opinion and care though. But I'm wondering why some nurses don't just go ahead and apply to medical school??!! When it comes to very complex and complicated procedures and the complicated questions I sometimes like to ask, I just feel more comfortable with a board certified medical doctor. But we do need nurses, I don't think any medical facility can survive without them.

  • Lisa daniels

    I need a doctor. I have bad experiences with nurse practitioners.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    So folks truly believe that this woman (who is also African American) will be respected in her position, by the same folks who disrespected the former President ( who also happened to be African American)? She going right in the basement with Ben.

    Speaking of.....why wasn't he pulled from HUD and given the job? I mean he is only a surgeon right?! SMDH

  • Mbailey

    In this case, it was the white media that was quick to demean her, as they did President Barack Obama. Obama couldn't get a thing done under the Party of No, but they pretend to be afraid of Trump and all of the mad and stupid things he is doing. Black are quick to call a distinguished person by their credentials. Whites are still sore that blacks can distinguish themselves.

  • ??Tommys_Female_Doppelganger??

    Maybe its the circles that I run in but I failed to see this uproar about her appointment due to experience from any liberals anywhere... Again I think this is something you're cooking up in your dramatic.. Jeez - I never knew your s3xual kind of people were so hatefully sensitive... You'd think a gay person would be the least hateful person around...

  • Wile E. Coli

    Her race isn't important. She looks to be just fine for the job. The sooner Obama's appointments are out, the better. The only thing they were good at was politicizing their offices.

  • Wile E. Coli

    +10

  • Wile E. Coli

    truly a disgusting post. From an idjut.

  • Wile E. Coli

    If you didn't want Trump you should have made sure Obama didn't piss on the country like he had. And you should NEVER have run a Clinton. Pendulum swings.

    You point about Mexicans, pure stupid. Sorry.

  • Sinny

    Don't bunch us together, please. You're reaching...

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    She is not a medical doctor.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I think it's great for her and all nurses, but I question Trump and his adivsors' true motivations??? Will he later appoint someone to a position so underqualified as a pawn for political and personal monetary gain???

    How does this appointment affect future White House Surgeon Generals. I always thought the person had to be a doctor, but I guess not. She was his deputy, but does that qualify her for this position, IDK???

    Did Trump do this to piss off white people, and ignite 'affirmative action' banter some people love to accredit to successful black people?

    Waiting...

  • Shira Harding-James

    OMG yes, I was just saying that above

  • Shira Harding-James

    Exactly you know the number of nurses who execute doctor duties on a daily basis, just visit an urgent care facility

  • Rayne

    Ok lol

  • Miss Thang

    Lol it really depends on the individual. Between an ARNP and an MD, the titles are just a matter of the level of narcotic they can prescribe. You have to look at their actual experience and specialization in order to judge whether they are qualified to answer your questions. Also, we don't apply to medical school because we don't want to be doctors. We want to be nurses. It's a different point of view on caring for the patient. Doctors only view the curative aspect of care.

  • MistaO

    Congratulations!

  • Miss Thang

    We will never be able to cure societal ills by treating it as a moral issue. Gun violence and drugs are a symptom of poverty and bad education and lack of opportunities and resources.

  • Evillene

    I am sure she's eminently qualified for the position. I wonder if she was truly an appointee or if she was selected as a 'placeholder' because the only plan was to ask the SG to resign and have his deputy take over. Like when he fired the former acting-AG, Sally Yates, she was replaced by her deputy until Sessions was confirmed.

  • Coco

    I thought the parties were switched, the current democrats were republicans and vice versa.

  • chris

    Liberals are against you black people. You are no longer needed for their agenda.

    The liberals only need black for votes....
    What are there plans for Americans.... anyone Know? Do they have any? Or is it just oppose Trump.... Don't matter what.... Make jokes, come up with lies.

  • Wellbalancedlibra

    They prob hired her to put the blame on a black person or her credentials. U never know with these elites.

  • Quitedeliteful

    She just might... SMH...

  • Lisa daniels

    Yeah. Let's pray not but you know this administration loves to blame others for their fck ups. She gots to me careful

  • NicoleZee

    Thank you for your insight and thank you for your service in the nursing field. What you said makes all the sense in the world. I just wondered sometimes if some nurses were ever interested in attending medical school, but I see why they would prefer a nursing career. When I had my baby almost 2 years ago, I met some of the greatest nurses ever! My OB checked on me a few times but it was the nurses that cared for me, calmed me down, and put up with me! I was in so much pain after my C-section. Now that I think about it, I have had some great conversations with nurses, they seem to offer insight beyond the actual problem that a patient has. I never made it through basic chemistry in college; I graduated with a degree in psychology, so I commend you on your very brave accomplishment!

  • OP2

    No. During the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s, there were a divide among Democrats where some became sympathizers and moderates being compassionate about the plights of Blacks.

    Hardcore J1m Cr0ws among the Southern Dems rejected and fought hard against this CRM. Most, but not all, rejected their own party and left for the other side.

    -therefore, you have triple k's or J1m Cr0ws still on both side. Each playing people to the middle in order to stay employed and in control.

  • OP2

    ...and flawed characters with deviant behaviors. Plenty of well-educated people with opportunities and resources (money) are drug abusers and/or have committed heinous acts and crimes just like those who are impoverished, etc.

    By the same token, "there are plenty of people who have come from poverty and lack of opportunity and resources" who did not do drugs; made the best of whatever little education was put before them to excel at learning.

    Those individuals continued to work hard and apply themselves to their focus or goals and nd have gone on to succeed in life as well-educated doctors, engineers, CEOs, entrepreneurs and so many more solid careers to lift themselves up out poverty for good.

    -therefore it is a moral issue often stemming from either poor parenting and/or negative surroundings.

  • OP2

    ...and so do nurses who are working alongside the doctors. The nurses who are working there "before, after and during care" of bloodied and broken bodies that end up the ER.

    -Clinicians who also have a Master's Degree in Public Health Policy are in a position to gather statistics on patients visits, diagnosis and diseases.

    This is how the public are aware of number of and types STDs [or other diseases] rising or falling in a certain area along with the demographics (ethnicities, gender & socio-economic background) of different patients and what they were treated for during any given point. That info is then analyze and then passed onto various health organizations before being reported to the public. -she has been there...done that! Therefore, qualified!!
