Last week, Joseph Epstein, who teaches at Northwestern University, penned an outrageous op-ed that was published in the Wall Street Journal admonishing Dr. Jill Biden, President-elect Joe Biden’s wife, to stop referring to herself as “Dr.” Epstein wrote “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.” He then commented “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.”
