Im hoping Dr Jill becomes surgeon, general. Yes, yes, you know she is a x hell of a doctor. Just dont ask her to commit surgery, shes, not actually a physician, shes, a doctor of education, which means basically nothing on Friday. The Wall Street Journal pointed this out. They ran a bad, true and obvious point. Jill Biden is not a doctor nowin, two thousand and seven at the age of fifty five. She a doctorate in education. She has the same degree as Dr Bill Cosby in two thousand and nine back when 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, thats, the real reason Jill bided was diagnosed with a very bad case of status and security. That is all true, its 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 and America in two thousand and twenty of course, Michelle Obama from either Hawaii or Marthas Vineyard, wrote about her disappointment with the Wall Street Journal. It is racist, it is sexist or something none of this is new weird. For years we have known about the bidens, they have deep class and security. This was Joe Biden back in nineteen. Eighty eight, 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 did decided I didnt 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 the outstanding student in the political science department paired. I graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school and one hundred and sixty five credits only needed one hundred and twenty three credits. I would be delighted to compare my iq to you. Dont, like yours, laughs, a very high iq and by wife is a doctor laughs. He has more hair now too LISA Boothe is not a doctor. Shes a Fox news contributor. She joins us tonight, Dr Booth, its good to see you hi Tucker. It is Dr Jill Biden and dont. You forget it or else.
As you noted Joe Joe Epstein ha, learn the hard way. I want to read the quote that really triggered the left, but this up right now im going to read this quote to you from Joseph Epstein. This is what he said. Madam first lady, MRS Biden Jill Kiddo any advice on what might seem like a small but not unimportant matter, any chance. You would drop the doctor before your name question MIKE. It feels fraudulent to not say, 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 Bidens Communication yeah Joe Bidens 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 those 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 twenty fifteen, 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 who separated you cant, make it up how unbelievable touching they are. They have no sense of humor about this. Its 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 credential is on, and now I have to refer to Jill Biden. I will never be able to refer to her as Dr Jill Biden, because its not just Dr Jill bided, it is all of them, with their dumb degrees from Cornell pen. Do 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 wont be impressed by the fact that I dont work at Mckinsey anymore,
its a revealing moment, Dr Booth, its great to see.
