In a brand new interview, she's finally spoken out to address the blatant disrespect...
Dr. Jill Biden is our future first lady...
via: GettyBut unbelievably so, she has already been receiving criticism and negativity.
And the most recent message of hate?
via: GettyWell, a male Wall Street Journal journalist shockingly called on her to drop her "doctor" title because she is not a "medical doctor."
This caused floods of outrage...
via: GettyAnd people all around the world, including the vice president-elect herself, rushed to Dr. Biden's defense.
via: GettyDr. Biden has publically addressed the matter herself and she has responded in the best possible way.
Now, Dr. Biden has been by her husband's side from day one
via: GettyBut let's not forget the future FLOTUS has some pretty amazing accomplishments of her own!
After her husband's win last month, she quickly followed with her words of congratulations.
He will be a President for all of our families. https://t.co/iGPKLMMIcK— Dr. Jill Biden (@Dr. Jill Biden)1604774605.0
Many people were gushing over the "normality" of their photo...

The Bidens are undeniably very different to the Trumps...
via: ShutterstockAnd, in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning back in August, the future first lady detailed just how different the White House will be under a Biden rule.
Apparently, Dr. Biden has plans to continue her teaching.
via: ShutterstockDr. Biden, who is currently a full-time English professor at Northern Virginia Community College, previously said: "If we get to the White House, I'm gonna continue to teach. It's important, and I want people to value teachers and know their contributions, and lift up the profession."
In 231 years of the role's existence, Dr. Biden would be making history if she were to continue working.
In the same interview, Biden outlined her other plans as the first lady.
But despite her amazing achievements...
via: GettyThere are people out there who are trying to drag her down, regardless of her intelligence and noble name.
On December 11, Joseph Epstein wrote in the Wall Street Journal that, despite her doctorate, she shouldn't label herself as "Dr. Biden."
@DrBiden Yes Doctor Jill Biden @DrBiden . https://t.co/g4l6NBbUbU— 2021-2029 JB KH (@2021-2029 JB KH)1607904523.0
Here's exactly what he said:
@DrBiden Thank you, Dr. Biden. Your accomplishments are only diminished by those who are threatened by them.— Liddle’ Savage (@Liddle’ Savage)1607904601.0

And it didn't end there...
via: GettyOn December 14, Fox News host Tucker Carlson admitted that he agreed with what was written, stating that she's "a doctor of education, which means basically nothing."
He later said...
via: Getty"Jill Biden is not a doctor, no. Maybe in the same sense, Dr. Pepper is. In 2007, at the age of fifty-five, she got a doctorate in education, so she's got the same degree as Dr. Bill Cosby." Ouch.
He then said that she must have gotten tired of seeing letters addressed to "Senator and Mrs. Biden"...
via: GettyAnd if that wasn't enough, he then said that she was trying "to cure [status anxiety] as so many do in our country, with another pointless title."
Of course, people were outraged...
Adding Dr. to my name. A title that was earned through hardwork, perseverance and determination. Eat dirt… https://t.co/0HZdmIyGKH— Dr. Meghana Rawal (@Dr. Meghana Rawal)1607950266.0
Many have since voiced their support for Dr. Biden, including Michelle Obama.
via: GettyThe former first lady took to Instagram to share how she believes Jill is a role model. She started by writing, "For 8 years, I saw Dr. Jill Biden do what a lot of professional women do—successfully manage more than one responsibility at a time, from her teaching duties to her official obligations in the White House to her roles as a mother, wife, and friend. And right now, we’re all seeing what also happens to so many professional women, whether their titles are Dr., Ms., Mrs., or even First Lady: All too often, our accomplishments are met with skepticism, even derision."
"We’re doubted by those who choose the weakness of ridicule over the strength of respect. And yet somehow, their words can stick—after decades of work, we’re forced to prove ourselves all over again."
via: Getty"Is this really the example we want to set for the next generation?" she asked.
"Dr. Biden gives us a better example."
via: Getty"And this is why I feel so strongly that we could not ask for a better First Lady. She will be a terrific role model not just for young girls but for all of us, wearing her accomplishments with grace, good humor, and yes, pride. I’m thrilled that the world will see what I have come to know—a brilliant woman who has distinguished herself in her profession and with the life she lives every day, always seeking to lift others up, rather than tearing them down."
And the vice president-elect, Kamala Harris, even spoke out on the subject.
via: Shutterstock"I was deeply disappointed that in 2020, that kind of approach would be given any legitimacy," she said. "Let's be clear about it: she worked hard. She raised her kids, she went to school, she went to night school, she got degrees, she earned everything she has. So, when there's anyone who tries to diminish the significance of people who work hard, I think it's just not the American way, frankly."
And now, 2 weeks after the degrading comments were first made, Dr. Biden has finally addressed the issue to the public.
via: GettyAlongside her husband, Dr. Biden spoke on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last week about the disrespect and negativity about her title. "That was such a surprise. It was really the tone of it that I think that - you know, he called me kiddo," she said, as per ABC News.
She then acknowledged her title and her achievements.
via: Getty"And one of the things I'm most proud of is my doctorate," she said, "I mean I worked so hard for it."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves!
