Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday labeled Jill Biden as an “illiterate” and blasted her doctoral dissertation in an escalation of his earlier attack against the incoming First Lady.
On his Wednesday show, Carlson continued his criticism against Biden and her doctoral degree in education after The Wall Street Journal published an op-ed last week encouraging her not to use the “Dr.” title as a nonmedical doctor.
On air, Carlson took to criticizing and nitpicking Biden’s doctoral dissertation, which she earned from the University of Delaware in 2007, calling it “our national shame.”
“Dr. Jill needs reading glasses,” he said. “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.”
“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,” Carlson added.
The Fox News host, who regularly scrutinizes President-elect Joe Biden, began his segment by detailing an imaginary incident in which the viewer has a massive coronary, is taken to Jill Biden instead of a medical doctor and therefore dies.
In his criticism of her dissertation, Carlson pointed out numerical inconsistencies and said parts “seem to be written in a foreign language in English words” and are “pure nonsense.”
But he warned viewers, “Whatever you do, do not make fun of it. If you dare to notice that Dr. Jill isn’t a supergenius, you hate all women. You’re a dangerous misogynist.”
He also argued that the incoming first lady and others use “fake” credentials to “justify their power over you.”
