Judy Cole, MSN, RN, is a clinical assistant professor who teaches at the University of Memphis, in Memphis, TN, and a maternal/newborn practicum. She has also taught at Methodist Hospital School of Nursing and Southwest Tennessee Community College.
Judy Cole, a woman who is in the medical field, who takes care of lives, chose to put in her two cents sending out a distasteful tweet trashing Press Secretary Sarah Huckbee Sanders, later backtracking her mistake by deleting or hiding her twitter account, after much backlash. (See Below)
Judy Cole’s tweet read: “If she froze to death, she wouldn’t be missed.”
Her tweet was referring to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Mike Huckabee, Sarah’s father, caught wind and shot back at Judy saying, “Woman teaches nursing at @uofmemphis and wishes my daughter would die. I feel sorry for someone so hateful and vicious. Poor woman makes Nurse Ratched look like Mother Teresa! How angry and bitter is a person who says that? Sad for your students and for you. (See Below)
For those who don’t know, nurse Ratched is a fictional character and the main antagonist of Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, as well as the 1975 film. A cold, heartless tyrant, Nurse Ratched has become the stereotype of the nurse as a battleaxe.
Here are the tweets captured before Judy Cole deleted or hid her account:
DON’T MESS WITH THE HUCKS!
*The twitterverse responded to Mike Huckabee in Sarah Huckabee’s defense overwhelming as well. Here are just a few below:
I'm a nurse and I find what she said totally disturbing. Her mentality does not represent any part of what a nurse symbolizes. I hope the school takes her phrase seriously and fires her. She does not belong in nursing and should not be teaching future nurses.

Let's ask @uofmemphis whether Judy Cole @JudyCol30582983 represents their views. If not, she should be dismissed immediately for her hateful and vicious comment about a good person trying to do her best to serve our country. Stay strong @PressSec. We love you and stand with you.

Nurses may disagree on political ideology, but to wish death on another is unprofessional and barbaric, especially coming from a Nurse Leader. @ANANursingWorld, @TNNursesAssoc please investigate this matter and act swiftly!

What a sad little human being! Being in the medical field she should evaluate her position if she’s gonna speak this way. The college she works for should also.?

What a horrible thing for someone to say! And a nurse? She would probably kill patients who don’t agree with her! Shouldn’t be employed!

Sarah is the best Press Secretary in our lifetime. The truth will always be her sword, but that's why the left hates her.

*Do you think Judy Cole was out of line and the University of Memphis should take action to remove her based on her profession and wishing death upon another human being? Let us know in the comments below, and share to expose.
