“Hi, I’m Jill. Jill Biden. But please, call me Dr. Biden”
“She said, ‘I was so sick of the mail coming to Sen. and Mrs. Biden. I wanted to get mail addressed to Dr. and Sen. Biden.’ That’s the real reason she got her doctorate,”
So Joe Biden basically told the U of Delaware to give Jill a “doctorate” and of course they obliged.
Mrs. Biden wanted the credential for its own sake. As for its quality, well. She got it from the University of Delaware, whose ties to her husband, its most illustrious alumnus if you don’t count Joe Flacco, run so deep that it has a school of public policy named after him. That the University of Delaware would have rejected her 2006 dissertation as sloppy, poorly written, non-academic, and barely fit for a middle-school Social Studies classroom (all of which it is) when her husband had been representing its state in the U.S. Senate for more than three decades was about as likely as Tom Hagen telling Vito Corleone that his wife is a fat sow on payday. The only risk to the University of Delaware was that it might strain its collective wrist in its rush to rubber-stamp her doctoral paper. Mrs. Biden could have turned in a quarter-a**ed excuse for a magazine article written at the level of Simple English Wikipedia and been heartily congratulated by the university for her towering mastery. Which is exactly what happened.
This explains Dr. Jill’s inability to properly pronounce simple Spanish words and liken Hispanics to Mexican food. In April of 2021 she mangled this simple phrase
Si say pwodway? Pathetic effort, DR. Jill. It should have been “Si, say PWAYday” It’s not difficult, especially for a DOCTOR.
She put her matchbook degree on display once again with a clumsy, obsequious effort at a compliment.
U.S. first lady Jill Biden’s attempt to compliment Latinos flopped on Monday when she said they were as unique as ‘breakfast tacos,’ prompting criticism from across the political spectrum.
Did you catch the other mispronunciation? Bodegas. A small grocery store. It’s bo-DAY-gahs, not BO-guh-das.
The National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) responded: “We are not tacos”
She insists on using the term LatinX, which many Hispanics find offensive.
A recent Politico poll of Hispanic voters found that only 2 percent of those polled refer to themselves as ‘Latinx,’ 68 percent prefer ‘Hispanic,’ and 21 percent favored ‘Latino’ or ‘Latina.’ At the same time 40 percent said Latinx bothers or offends them while 30 percent said that use of the term would make them less likely to vote for a candidate.
DOCTOR Jill, like AOC and Elizabeth Warren, continue to use the term and promote its use no matter what Hispanics think. Being liberals, they know better than do Hispanics themselves. And here I thought it was just Joe.
Anyway, in response Sen. Marco Rubio changed his profile picture
