Why is the press now calling Jill Biden a Doctor. They never called her a doctor before so what gives? Why doesn't Rand Paul use Doctor?
Rand Paul is a real surgical Doctor.

Dr Biden has been a “Doctor” for some time.Rand Paul apparently prefers Senator as opposed to Doctor.

They are white knighting for her.

Jill should quietly refrain from using the title. Yes, she has an "Educationis Doctor" degree. But she will be the First Lady and she'll be meeting world leaders with much more impressive credentials who are not calling themselves Dr.
Putin, Xi, Merkel are all PhDs in the physical sciences. Jill will be the only one calling herself "Dr". It opens her up to scrutiny, comparison and mockery and that's bad protocol, bad press.

Actually they certainly did call her "Doctor" Jill Biden. You just missed that point. They were calling her Dr. back when Joe began his campaign for POTUS.
Jill has an Ed D, doctor of education. It is certainly less of a doctorate than an MD or even a PhD in that many institutions do not require a dissertation for the Ed D. And the Ed D can be obtained in three years part-time while the PhD take three to six years full time. (Mine took eight years, but I was taking my PhD seminars while working at a job.)I would put the Ed D and the JD (for lawyers) at about the same level of education, but certainly not equal to the MD or PhD. To get the Ed D many institutions require that the candidate get a dissertation in practice, which amounts to an internship with some educational institution.

Jill Biden has a doctorate degree in Education & two masters degrees. Rand Paul practiced ophthalmology for 3 yrs before his certification lasped in 1994. He is NOT licensed to practice medicine.

Calling someone doctor as a title via their education and A doctor are very different things... Are you this uneducated?

I'm so sorry that the new First Lady can't use the term "Former Soft Porn Star".
