    That misongynist President Trump…oh wait? Congratultations Colonel, and Thank you President Trump and Secretary Mattis. Watch the feminists and the Women’s March movements run for cover on this promotion. First female Brigadier General, First female CIA Director (If the Dems allow it), the first female DHS Secretary, first female campaign manager for a winning Presidential candidate, and in the private sector, the first female project manager for construction of a skyscraper. Just to name some.
