Army General Tweets Jill Biden: 'Glad You Finally Know What a Woman Is'
Three-star general suspended after tweet
A three-star general had his military contract suspended after tweeting first lady Jill Biden which appeared to mock her in the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Retired Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky is the Army's former top spokesman, but while in retirement he recently signed a contract with the Army to command the Combined Arms Center and advise active-duty officers.
He is now being investigated for the below now-deleted tweet:
"For nearly 50 years, women have had the right to make our own decisions about our bodies," Jill Biden's initial tweet said.
"Today, that right was stolen from us."
For nearly 50 years, women have had the right to make our own decisions about our bodies.— Jill Biden (@FLOTUS) June 24, 2022
Today, that right was stolen from us.
And while we may be devastated by this injustice, we will not be silent. We will not sit back as the progress we have already won slips away.
Gen. Volesky responded using his personal Twitter account:
"Glad to see you finally know what a woman is," the General tweeted.
The tweet was sent on June 24, and Volesky later deleted it without explanation or apology.
"A retired three-star general has been suspended from a $92-an-hour contract consulting the Army and is under investigation after posting a tweet that appeared to mock first lady Jill Biden on a hot-button social issue, according to the Army," the report said.
The incident is relatively rare for the Pentagon given senior commanders aren't supposed to get "political".
Gen. Volesky was referencing what's become a meme highlighting the utter inconsistency of the Left and its inability to maintain basic definitions of reality.
It goes back to the March Congressional hearing when Biden's US Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson was asked by Sen. Marsha Blackburn to simply define the word "woman."
Jackson's absurd response while refusing to acknowledge what a woman is, was to say:
"I'm not a biologist"
Meanwhile, we hardly have to remind readers how frequently generals and high-ranking government officials mocked and/or criticized the Trump presidency when he was in office.
