In the aftermath of Joe Biden’s presidential victory, his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, has come under fire for her title. But now she’s hit back at critics…

As the motions begin for 4 years of a Joe Biden presidency, his wife and future first lady, Jill Biden, has revealed her own unique plans for their stay in the White House.  

Sharing a photo of the pair in their Delaware home, she wrote: “He will be a president for all of our families.”

And noting how refreshing it is to have an “actual American family” win the presidency.

The Bidens are undeniably very different to the Trumps…

And, 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.

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.”

Historian Katherine Jellison, a professor at Ohio University who studies first ladies, told CBS News on Saturday that Dr. Biden would be the only first lady to hold a paid job and first to have a doctorate degree.

She’ll advocate for free community college tuition, funding for cancer research, and support for military families, as she did in her role as the second lady.  

Journalist Joseph Epstein wrote a piece about how she should drop her title – and it didn’t go down well.

“Any chance you might drop the ‘Dr.’ before your name?”

“Your degree is, I believe, an Ed.D., a doctor of education, earned at the University of Delaware through a dissertation with the unpromising title ‘Student Retention at the Community College Level: Meeting Students’ Needs’.”

“Think about it, Dr. Jill, and forthwith drop the doc.”

And it’s not hard to understand why.

With many standing up for Biden’s right to use the title she’s earned.

Taking to Twitter to calmly make her point.
