Twitter Moments noted back on Nov. 7 that Jill Biden is set to be the first first lady with a doctorate:

Remember when Whoopi Goldberg on “The View” called Biden “an amazing doctor” and suggested she be the next surgeon general? Joseph Epstein wrote in the Wall Street Journal that Biden … “kiddo” … drop the Dr. from her name and enjoy going by first lady.

“As for your Ed.D., Madame First Lady, hard-earned though it may have been, please consider stowing it, at least in public, at least for now.

Forget the small thrill of being Dr. Jill, and settle for the larger thrill of living for the next four years in the best public housing in the world as First Lady Jill Biden.”

The op-ed did not go over well.

“… sounds and feels fraudulent, not to say a touch comic.”

Merriam-Webster even got in a shot:

Here’s Mr. Kamala Harris:

Emily Larsen, however, got in the “shot and chaser” with a Washington Post analysis by Callum Borchers about Sebastian Gorka from 2017.

“Sebastian Gorka, a deputy assistant to President Trump, really, really, likes to be called ‘Dr. Gorka’ — a hang-up for which he was mocked last week by comedian Samantha Bee.” So when a female “comedian” mocks Gorka for wanting to be referred to by his title, it’s OK, because it’s just “a hang-up.”

To be honest, yeah, we think Jill Biden insisting on being called Dr. Biden is a bit much. We’ll bet the mainstream media never makes the mistake of forgetting her degree, though, or writes disparaging pieces about her shoes or accent or Christmas decorations.
