A tweet about Jill Biden led to the suspension of a three-star official

A retired three-star general of the U.S Army has been suspended from his mentor position as he had sarcastically congratulated the first lady of US Jill Biden, for learning "what women are."

The retired general's name is Volesky, and he had locked Jill Biden on social media in June by responding to a tweet about the Supreme Court overturning the Roe judgment.

The first lady Jill Biden had tweeted: "for nearly fifty years, women have had the right to make our own decisions about our bodies. Today, that right is stolen from us."

Volesky mocked Jill Biden on social media in June, responding to a tweet about the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. She also wrote after the Dobbs case, "And while we may be silent. We will not sit back as the process we have already won slips away."

In response to this tweet, Volesky replied by saying, "glad to see you finally know what a woman is." The tweet was deleted later on.

While speaking to Fox News, the army confirmed the suspension and the speculation that the veteran was under "internal investigation," a spokesman for the army confirmed that Retired Lt. General Gary Volesky has now been suspended. This suspension was a part of an "inquiry," and they didn't provide further details.
