You know, she is a hell of a doctor.
> Tucker: Just don’t ask her to perform surgery. She’s not actually a physician, she’s a doctor of education which means basically nothing. On Friday, “The Wall Street Journal” pointed this out. They ran a very, true and obvious point. Jill Biden is not a doctor. In 2007 at the age of 55 she got a doctorate in education. She has the same degree as Dr. Bill Cosby. In 2009, back when America was more honest, “I was so sick of the mail coming to center, I wanted to get it addressed to Dr. and Senator Biden.” That’s the real reason. Jill Biden was diagnosed with a very bad case of status and security. That is all true, it’s all obvious, therefore you are not allowed to say it.
“The Washington Post” column called Joe Epstein a weird, grumpy, elitist man. Because he told the truth, which is the one sin in America in 2020. Of course, Michelle Obama from either Hawaii or Martha’s vineyard wrote about her disappointment with “The Wall Street Journal.” It is racist, it is sexist, or something. None of this is new we’ve known for years, we have known about the Bidens. They have deep class and security. This was Joe Biden back in 1988 for example.
> I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do. I suspect. I went to law school on a full academic scholarship, the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship. The first year I decided I didn’t want to be in law school and ended up in the bottom two-thirds of my class and decided I want to stay, went back to law school, and in fact ended up in the top half of my class. I won the international competition, I was an outstanding student in the political science department paired I graduated with 3 degrees from undergraduate school and 165 credits. Only needed 123 credits. I would be delighted to compare my IQ to … yours.
> Tucker: [Laughs] A very high IQ. And my wife is a doctor.[Laughs]
He has more hair now too. Lisa Boothe is not a doctor. She’s a Fox News contributor. She joins us tonight. Dr. Booth, it’s good to see you.
> Hi, Tucker. It is Dr. Jill Biden and don’t you forget it, or else. As you no Joe Epstein had to learn the hard way. I want to read the quote that really triggered the left. But this up right now. I’m going to read this quote to you from Joseph Epstein. This is what he said.
“Madame First Lady—Mrs. Biden—Jill—kiddo: a bit of advice on what may seem like a small but I think is a not unimportant matter. Any chance you might drop the “Dr.” before your name? “Dr. Jill Biden ” sounds and feels fraudulent, not to say a touch comic.”
As you can imagine, this article, this op-ed was not well received. As you pointed out, it provoked a response from Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton also tweeted she is Dr. Jill Biden, get used to it. Joe Biden’s communication — yeah, Joe Biden’s communication team called it shameful, sexist. They called “The Wall Street Journal” to remove it and issue an apology. Northwestern called his comments misogynistic and they removed his profile from the website. And all of this, also Joe Biden responded as well.
She responded in a tweet saying this about two young daughters everywhere. She said, “Together, we will build a world where the accomplishments of our daughters will be celebrated rather than diminished.”
This is the kicker for me. Is if you go through and read all of the articles outlining that controversy that happened, they all use the dash they all know they use AP style which does not use doctor to refer to academic credentials, which is precisely the point that Joseph Epstein was making in his column. So this is what I think is absolutely hilarious is that there is all of this when this is precisely the point he was making. Also, in 2015 “The New York Times” was three times as likely to use Dr. In referring to Jill Biden then Ben Carson, who is a noted and prestigious neurosurgeon.
> Tucker: Who separated — —
> You can’t make it up.
> Tucker: How unbelievable touchy they are. They have no sense of humor about this. It’s like going up to a Panamanian general asking where all those metals came from. They are self-awarded. This is a threat to their entire system of credentials is on.
> And now I have to refer to Jill Biden. I will never be able to refer to her as Dr. Jill Biden.
>> Tucker: Because it’s not just Dr. Jill Biden, it is all of them with their dumb degrees from Cornell, Penn. Are we supposed to be impressed? They are totally unimpressive. If they can make fun of Jill Biden, mock a ludicrous potential like a doctor of education, boy, maybe they won’t be impressed by the fact that I don’t work at McKinsey anymore. It’s a revealing moment.
