Fox News’ Chris Wallace Defends Jill Biden From ‘Silly, Sexist And Absurd’ Questions About Her ‘Doctor’ Status

Fox News host Chris Wallace spoke out over the weekend to defend Jill Biden from the “fuss” over her title of “doctor” after a Wall Street Journal op-ed claimed that she did not deserve the title.

Wallace Defends Jill Biden

“There has been some criticism recently from conservatives, including some conservatives on Fox News about the fact that First Lady-to-be Jill Biden goes by the title doctor,” Wallace said.

“I wonder what is the Biden’s reaction to that, especially given the fact that so many people over the years — I think of Dr. Henry Kissinger, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King have gone by the title doctor, even though they’re not medical doctors and nobody seems to have made a fuss about that,” he continued.

Jen Psaki, who is Joe Biden’s pick for White House press secretary, spoke out to defend Jill as well.

“It’s a bit perplexing to me, and I’m sure to millions of Americans that with thousands of people dying every day of COVID, millions out of work, that anyone would wake up in the morning and decide that the focus they need to have, the way they can contribute to society that day is to question whether or not Dr. Jill Biden — someone who is still teaching, who has a Ph.D. in education — should be called ‘doctor’ or not,” Psaki said.

“Of course, she should. As anyone who works through that challenging process of getting a Ph.D. It’s a really silly, sexist and absurd conversation that’s happening a bit in society,” she added. 

Jill Defends Herself

Jill had defended herself last week in an interview with late night television host Stephen Colbert.

“That was such a surprise!” she said of the op-ed. “It was really the tone of it … You know, he called me ‘kiddo.’ One of the things I’m most proud of is my doctorate, I mean, I worked so hard for it.”

The media has been up in arms over this one “sexist” op-ed bashing Jill, yet they were silent over the past four years when First Lady Melania Trump was hit with sexist attack after sexist attack. The hypocrisy of the left is truly staggering.
