A US Army General has been suspended over making a mocking tweet to Jill Biden. Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky published the tweet on June 24, and subsequently deleted it.
In response to a tweet addressed to first lady Jill Biden that seemed to make fun of her and the government in the wake of Roe v. Wade’s reversal, a three-star general had his military contract canceled and is now under investigation.
Retired The Army’s former spokesperson, Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky, recently accepted a contract to lead the Combined Arms Center and provide guidance to active duty officers while being retired. For the following, since-deleted tweet, he is under investigation:
“For nearly 50 years, women have had the right to make our own decisions about our bodies. Today, that right was stolen from us, ” said Jill Biden’s initial post. Utilizing his personal Twitter account, Gen. Volesky replied, “Glad to see you finally know what a woman is.”
Volesky published the tweet on June 24, and subsequently deleted it without providing a reason or an apology. On Saturday, USA Today revealed the investigation for the first time.
