During an interview with “comedian” Stephen Colbert, former Second Lady Jill Biden spoke out about everyone making fun of her for her “doctorate” degree.
“You once said in your own memoir, ‘The role I always felt most at home in is Dr. Biden,’” Colbert started. “Now some people have recently taken upon themselves to question that title of yours. Do you have any reaction to those people?”
The Daily Wire reports: “Colbert was apparently referencing a Saturday op-ed by Joseph Epstein in The Wall Street Journal titled “Is There a Doctor in the White House? Not if You Need an M.D.” Epstein, a former lecturer at Northwestern University who served as editor of The American Scholar from 1975 to 1997, argued that Jill Biden, who obtained a doctorate in education from the University of Delaware in 2007, should drop the title.”
“Yeah, that was such a surprise,” Jill Biden replied. “It was really the tone of it that I think that — you know, he called me ‘kiddo.’ One of the things I’m most proud of is my doctorate; I mean, I worked so hard for it. And, you know, Joe came when I defended my thesis.”
“I got to hand her her doctorate on the stage at the University of Delaware,” Joe Biden interjected. “She had two masters’ degrees, she kept going to school all the time while teaching at night, and then what happens is, I said, ‘Jill, why don’t a doctorate and make us some real money.’ She gets a doctorate and gets a $2,000 raise.”
“But look at all the people who came out in support of me,” Jill Biden continued. “I am so grateful. And I was just overwhelmed by how gracious people were toward me.”

One of the people to make fun of Jill Biden was Fox News host Tucker Carlson who compared her to “Dr. Bill Cosby.”
The comments from Carlson came in response to an op-ed written by Joseph Epstein which caused a lot of controversy this week. Epstein’s said that Jill Biden should not go by “Dr.” considering she is a doctor of education, not one of an actual medical profession.
Carlson agreed with Epstein’s assessment as he mocked Jill Biden, saying she’s “a doctor of education, which means basically nothing.”
“Jill Biden is not a doctor, no. Maybe in the same sense Dr. Pepper is,” Carlson mocked. “In 2007, at the age of 55, she got a doctorate in education, so she’s got the same degree as Dr. Bill Cosby.”
Carlson continued by unleashing on Jill Biden for having “status anxiety,” saying she “decided to cure that, as so many do in our country, with another pointless title.”
