The View’s Whoopi Goldberg didn’t realize Dr. Jill Biden’s title isn’t for a medical degree and said she should be surgeon general because she’s “one hell of a doctor.” The truth is that Goldberg was behaving as if she knew of Dr. Biden’s experience as an “amazing” medical doctor.
After Biden’s surprise wins on Super Tuesday, Goldberg had this to say about Dr. Biden:
“I’m hoping Dr. Jill becomes the surgeon general…she’s a hell of a doctor. She’s an amazing doctor.”
When Goldberg was called out on the lie, she said:
“I could be wrong. I thought she was a PhD.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin corrected Bloomberg and then said Dr. Biden could take the Secretary of Education job:
“She’s a teacher…but, you know, might be good for Betsy DeVos’ post.”
The truth is that Dr. Biden received her doctoral degree in education leadership from the University of Delaware in 2007.
