Michelle Obama has spoken out after Dr. Jill Biden recently received some pretty harsh comments surrounding her title, and she didn't hold back...
Jill Biden has been by her husband's side from day one, but let's not forget the future FLOTUS has some pretty amazing accomplishments of her own...As the motions begin for 4 years of a Joe Biden presidency, Jill Biden has had to deal with her fair share of insulting remarks. And people are loving how she's dealing with them...
After Biden's win, she quickly followed with her words of congratulations.
Sharing a photo of the pair in their Delaware home, she wrote: "He will be a president for all of our families."
He will be a President for all of our families. https://t.co/iGPKLMMIcK— Dr. Jill Biden (@Dr. Jill Biden)1604774605.0
Many people have been gushing over the "normality" of their photo...
And noting how refreshing it is to have an "actual American family" win the presidency.
@DrBiden Just looking at the background of this picture....lots of books, a slightly worn couch that looks like peo… https://t.co/7lGpWkoDsK— HappyEnchilada (@HappyEnchilada)1604775053.0
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.
Apparently, Dr. Biden has plans to continue teaching.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.
Despite her amazing accomplishments so far, there's one that refuses to acknowledge her hard work...Conservative political commentator Tucker Carlson has defended the Wall Street Journal writer who said Jill Biden should drop the "Dr." title in her name. And people are loving her response...

On December 11, Joseph Epstein wrote in the Wall Street Journal that, despite her doctorate, she shouldn't label herself as "Dr. Biden."
He advised her that she should "drop the doc" as the title "feels fraudulent."
@DrBiden Yes Doctor Jill Biden @DrBiden . https://t.co/g4l6NBbUbU— 2021-2029 JB KH (@2021-2029 JB KH)1607904523.0
You can read what the journalist wrote below...
"Madame First Lady—Mrs. Biden—Jill—kiddo: a bit of advice on what may seem like a small but I think is a not unimportant matter. Any chance you might drop the 'Dr.' before your name? "Dr. Jill Biden sounds and feels fraudulent, not to say a touch comic. 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.'"
@DrBiden Thank you, Dr. Biden. Your accomplishments are only diminished by those who are threatened by them.— Liddle’ Savage (@Liddle’ Savage)1607904601.0
"A wise man once said that no one should call himself 'Dr.' unless he has delivered a child. Think about it, Dr. Jill, and forthwith drop the doc."
@DrBiden Right on DR. Biden. I am ecstatic to have an honourable intellectual as our #FLOTUS for the first time in… https://t.co/gnKfAXPxtF— Shamanator (@Shamanator)1607904626.0
And it doesn't end there... on December 14, Fox News host Tucker Carlson brought up the comment, even admitting he agreed with what he wrote...
Stating that she's "a doctor of education, which means basically nothing."
@cmclymer @DrBiden @NOVAcommcollege Pretty much says it all. https://t.co/DCOQ5CkP8B— EJ Mondini 🌈 (@EJ Mondini 🌈)1607907028.0
He later said...
"Jill Biden is not a doctor, no. Maybe in the same sense, Dr Pepper is," he added. "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.
@DrBiden Thank you, Dr. Biden. https://t.co/ABgr4wmMpe— Janet (@Janet)1607905613.0
He then said that she must have gotten tired of seeing letters addressed to "Senator and Mrs. Biden."
And 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."

Dr. Biden took to Twitter to respond...
She wrote: "Together, we will build a world where the accomplishments of our daughters will be celebrated, rather than diminished." We love it!
