"Dr. Jill Biden has the very same degree as Dr. Bill Cosby does, which is one degree from Dr. Pepper,” he said. "Jill Biden is not a doctor, no. Maybe in the same sense, Dr. Pepper is.”
Soon after television presenter and a political commentator from Fox News compared Jill Biden's "Dr." title to Dr. Pepper and Bill Cosby, people on social media responded with an infuriating reaction. Jill Biden, the incoming first lady, uses the title of Dr. in her name and has a doctorate in education. When a Wall Street Journal column recently made a suggestion regarding the removal of "Dr." from Jill Biden's name, it gave way to sexism controversy, and soon, former first ladies Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton jumped to her defense.
Tucker Carlson also discussed the topic in his show on Fox News and mocked Biden for preferring the title even though she’s not a medical doctor.
“Dr. Jill Biden has the very same degree as Dr. Bill Cosby does, which is one degree from Dr. Pepper,” he said. "Jill Biden is not a doctor, no. Maybe in the same sense, Dr. Pepper is.” He also compared the incoming first lady to Bill Cosby, who’s serving time for sex crimes.
Given that Tucker Carlson is a frozen food heir, HE’S actually closer to Dr. Pepper. 🥤— Santa Claus, CEO (@SantaInc) December 16, 2020
Tucker Carlson says Jill Biden "is a doctor in the same sense Dr Pepper is". Dude, I've never seen you trending for a good reason. You wouldn't last a day in a real PhD program— Dr. Asatar Bair (@asatarbair) December 16, 2020
Tucker Carlson is so pressed, envious & fearful of a woman with a higher education than he has to say that Dr. Jill Biden is "a doctor of education, which means basically nothing."— 👽 (@__kayxtay) December 16, 2020
