US Army General suspended for mocking first lady Jill Biden

The U.S. Army has suspended a former top spokesperson from a consulting position and put him under investigation after he posted a tweet appearing to mock Jill Biden

The tweet by retired Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky came in response to a June 24 statement posted to the first lady's Twitter account following the court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.

“For nearly 50 years, women have had the right to make our own decisions about our bodies. Today, that right was stolen from us,” Biden said.

"Glad to see you finally know what a woman is," Volesky responded, according to USA Today, which first reported the story. The tweet has since been deleted.

Volesky is a decorated, retired three-star general who received one of the military's highest honors, the Silver Star, for his valor in Iraq

Volesky was on a $92-an-hour contract with the Army serving as a senior mentor advising top military officers and other personnel on war games strategy and other military activities

Spokeswoman Cynthia Smith confirmed that Volesky had been suspended pending the inquiry's outcome
