Jill Biden is not a medical doctor. She has an advanced degree in education.
Yet she uses the title of doctor before her name.
A recent column in the Wall Street Journal suggested that she should not use the title of Dr. and now Democrats and liberal media types are losing their minds.
The Daily Caller reports:
WSJ Editor Defends Op-Ed On Dr. Jill Biden After Receiving ‘Coordinated’ Backlash From Media, Democrats
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) editor Paul A. Gigot says the Biden team used a recently published op-ed to “send a message to critics” after the post sparked backlash among Democrats who called for the piece to be removed.
“Why go to such lengths to highlight a single op-ed on a relatively minor issue?” Gigot questioned. “My guess is that the Biden team concluded it was a chance to use the big gun of identity politics to send a message to critics as it prepares to take power. There’s nothing like playing the race or gender card to stifle criticism. It’s the left’s version of Donald Trump’s ‘enemy of the people’ tweets.”
Gigot said that when President Donald Trump “rants against the press, the press mobilizes in opposition.” However, when the press goes after a Democrat, “almost all of the press” joins in to denounce the WSJ, citing a New York Times piece entitled ‘An Opinion Writer Argued Jill Biden Should Drop the ‘Dr.’ (Few Were Swayed.)’
The media was awful to Melania Trump for four years but they are going crazy to defend Jill Biden.
.@jamestaranto, you and the @WSJ should be embarrassed to print the disgusting and sexist attack on @DrBiden running on the @WSJopinion page. If you had any respect for women at all you would remove this repugnant display of chauvinism from your paper and apologize to her.

Dr. Biden earned her degrees through hard work and pure grit. She is an inspiration to me, to her students, and to Americans across this country. This story would never have been written about a man. pic.twitter.com/mverJiOsxC

Jill Biden is not a doctor.
Deal with it, Democrats.
