Following his Monday attack on future First Lady in which he , on Wednesday, continued mocking Dr. Biden for using the title of doctor. Dr. Biden has a bachelor’s degree, two master’s degrees and a doctorate from the University of Delaware, and with his latest batch of insults, Carlson didn’t just go after Dr. Biden, but also the dissertation that earned her that doctorate.
“We actually read her dissertation this week, the very document that made her, quote, a doctor. And what did we discover when we did that? We’re gonna give it to you in a diagnosis,” Carlson said. “Dr. Jill needs reading glasses. Either that or she’s borderline illiterate. There are typos everywhere, including in the first graph of the introduction. Dr. Jill can’t write. She can’t really think clearly either.”
Not long after, on , and joined the prominent figures, like Vice President-elect and former First Lady , to come to Dr. Biden’s defense.
TUCKER CARLSON: We actually read her dissertation this week-- the very document that made her, quote, "a doctor." And what did we discover when we did that? We're going to give it to you in a diagnosis. Dr. Jill needs reading glasses. Either that, or she's borderline illiterate.
- On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Carlson continued his attacks on soon-to-be first lady Dr. Jill Biden. Following an op-ed in "The Wall Street Journal" last week that many condemned as misogynistic, Carlson, on Monday, compared to Dr. Biden to Dr. Pepper. And on Wednesday, he attacked her dissertation.
TUCKER CARLSON: The whole thing is just incredibly embarrassing. And not simply to poor illiterate Jill Biden, but to the college that considered this crap scholarship. Embarrassing, in fact, to our entire system of higher education, to the nation itself. Jill Biden's doctoral dissertation is our national shame.
- Prominent women like future vice president, Kamala Harris, and former First Lady Michelle Obama, rushed to Dr. Biden's defense following 'The Wall Street Journal" column. And following Carlson's attack on Wednesday, CNN's Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon joined them.
CHRIS CUOMO: Sometimes they don't even know it. They don't know that they're just pissed that it's a woman. You know, like I said--
DON LEMON: Nobody said we shouldn't call Dr. King Dr. King anymore. I mean, you know, what-- they're not mad about that, are they?
