The Huffington Post reports:
Conservative commentator Megyn Kelly threw a fit on Twitter during Sunday’s NFC Championship game over a single word uttered by the announcers: “Doctor,” as in “Dr. Jill Biden.” The first lady grew up in the Philadelphia area and was at the game to cheer on her Eagles as the team defeated the San Francisco 49ers to earn a trip to the Super Bowl. The announcers used the title when they spotted her in the crowd, causing Kelly to rage-tweet.
Read the full article. Of note, Kelly often refers to anti-abortion activist Alveda King as “Dr.” even though King’s is an honorary title issued by a Christian college. In recent days Kelly has hosted prominent anti-vaxxers on the SiriuxXM show. Kelly last appeared on JMG when she whined that wearing a mask felt like “having Joe Biden’s hand over my mouth.”
Announcers for this Eagles-49ers game just spotted the First Lady in a box and of course call her “Dr. Jill Biden.” Wonder if she realizes what a wannabe she looks like insisting on this fake title. Get a real MD or just work on your self-esteem.

Why is this important? All of my professors in college were referred to as “Dr.” No one had a problem with it.

PhDs existed before MDs. You sound jealous and petty.

Hey, this you?
Alveda King doesn’t have an MD, hon. pic.twitter.com/WikMtshMmp
