Trump asks Obama surgeon general to resign, replaces him with a black nurse: Libs slam her credentials

It’s not until the last paragraph that the New York Times mentions that Sylvia Trent-Adams has a Ph.D. and was a nurse officer in the Army who had served as deputy surgeon general.
BizPacReview  "For President Trump, no good deed goes unpunished.  
"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.”       
The disses started with liberal media outlets like ABC News, which tepidly announced in a snide tweet: “Dr. Vivek Murthy — an Obama appointee — resigns as Surgeon General, replaced by deputy Sylvia Trent-Adams, a nurse.”  

" 'Actually, she’s a nurse with a Ph.D., so you can call her “Doctor.”' Trump fires Obama surgeon general vivek murthy, replaces her with black nurse sylvia trent adams
"Similarly, the New York Times — the so-called bastion of social justice activism — bleated in a snobby headline: “Nurse Replaces Surgeon General After Obama Appointee Resigns.' ”  

"No one doubted Trent-Adams’ credentials (or lack of a medical degree) when she was deputy surgeon general under Obama. If she was qualified to be second in line to the Surgeon General’s post then, why is she suddenly unqualified now? Is it simply because Trump promoted her?  

"Meanwhile, “tolerant, open-minded” liberals immediately trashed Trent-Adams as unqualified." . . .
