Independent journalist Megyn Kelly put voice to what many Americans feel when she saw a clip of first lady Jill Biden attending the NFC Championship Game in Philadelphia.
While President Joe Biden was nowhere to be found, Mrs. Biden was seen sitting in a private suite at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday to support the Philadelphia Eagles, sitting next to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell — this being perhaps a good explanation as to why the NFL went full “woke,” embracing the Black Lives Matter grift and allowing to this day social justice messages on players helmets and the field of play.
Fox Sports broadcasters referred to the first lady as “Dr. Jill Biden,” as did the chyron at the bottom of the screen:

Jill Biden is not a medical doctor, although she does hold a doctorate in education from the University of Delaware — the Los Angeles Times noted in a 2009 article on Biden. The media generally does not apply the honorific “Dr.” before a person’s name unless that person has a medical degree.
Either way, the pomposity was too much for Kelly to bear.
“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,” the former Fox News host tweeted.

As for the game, the competition failed to meet the high expectations going into the contest when young phenom and starting San Francisco QB Brock Purdy left the game early due to an injury, relegating the 49ers to a fourth-string backup who has bounced around the league — there would be story tell ending, with the Eagles prevailing 31-7.
Interestingly, U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., best known for having fallen for a CCP honeytrap, and engaging in a sexual relationship with a suspected Chinese spy, turned up in Philadelphia for the game. It’s entirely possible that he jinxed the team, putting the Fang Fang whammy on the 49ers while sharing a photo of himself repping with a ballcap.
“Possibly last post,” he tweeted, this being a play on how unfriendly Eagles fans are in the City of Brotherly Love.

Here are a couple of responses seen on Twitter from those who see Kelly’s point:
But maybe not at the football game…

Insisting on the title “Dr.” is pompous & entitled enough for Ph.Ds, but a doctorate in education is in no way more deserving of the honorific than my juris doctor. Everybody knows this, but partisans have to defend her out of sheer tribalism. https://t.co/Qq5Kk4L34K

On the other hand, water carriers on the left, who appear to believe their calling in life is to prop up the administration of an 80-year-old president who may be suffering from early-stage dementia, had a fit, spewing their venom at Megyn Kelly:
Hey @megynkelly, on behalf of everybody who has a phd, or knows somebody who has one and can appreciate the tireless years of work it takes to research, write, and defend a dissertation, go f*ck yourself. https://t.co/OP6lapFn6a

Jill Biden actually earned a doctorate. On the other hand, you @megynkelly are an entertainer who claims to be a journalist. STFU. We’re watching the game. https://t.co/f8LlVyyx0Y

Do you realize that getting a PhD doesn’t mean you’re a medical doctor? Are you that ignorant or are you just treating your audience as if they are? https://t.co/hdCvrALIz6
