The Bidens are undeniably very different to the Trumps...

Apparently, Dr. Biden has plans to continue teaching.

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.
Despite her amazing accomplishments so far, there's one that refuses to acknowledge her hard work...

Dr. Biden took to Twitter to respond...
Together, we will build a world where the accomplishments of our daughters will be celebrated, rather than diminished.— Dr. Jill Biden (@Dr. Jill Biden)1607904455.0
Many have voiced their support for Dr. Biden, including Michelle Obama.
via: Getty ImagesThe 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."
via: Getty Images"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 Images"Is this really the example we want to set for the next generation?" she asked.
"Dr. Biden gives us a better example."
via: Getty Images"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 now Kamala Harris has spoken out on the subject, too.
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."
via: Shutterstock"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."
