Here’s what she said.
According to The Daily Wire, Jill Biden stated that she is shocked that people are doubting her medical degree.
“You once said in your own memoir, ‘The role I always felt most at home in is Dr. Biden,’” Stephen Colbert began. “Now some people have recently taken upon themselves to question that title of yours. Do you have any reaction to those people?”
“Yeah, that was such a surprise,” Jill Biden answered Colbert, adding, “It was really the tone of it that I think that — you know, he called me ‘kiddo.’ One of the things I’m most proud of is my doctorate; I mean, I worked so hard for it. And, you know, Joe came when I defended my thesis.”
“I got to hand her her doctorate on the stage at the University of Delaware,” Joe Biden interjected. “She had two masters’ degrees, she kept going to school all the time while teaching at night, and then what happens is, I said, ‘Jill, why don’t a doctorate and make us some real money.’ She gets a doctorate and gets a $2,000 raise.” You can read the full article here.
