The View' co-host says she hopes Jill Biden, who received a doctor of education in educational leadership, becomes surgeon general if Joe Biden is elected president.
"The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg didn't realize on Wednesday that the "Dr." in Dr. Jill Biden's title didn't represent a medical degree.
After former Vice President Joe Biden's wins on Super Tuesday, Goldberg floated the candidate's wife for surgeon general.
"I'm hoping Dr. Jill becomes the surgeon general ... she's a hell of a doctor. She's an amazing doctor," Goldberg said, as if she knew of the former second lady's medical expertise.
After co-host Meghan McCain cast doubt on that, Goldberg said: "I could be wrong. I thought she was a PhD."
"She's a teacher," co-host Sunny Hostin said, "but, you know, might be good for Betsy DeVos' post."
Dr. Jill Biden received her doctoral degree in education leadership from the University of Delaware in 2007. Although her husband's health has become a topic of discussion in 2020, the former second lady does not have experience working as a physician.
After the commercial break, Goldberg acknowledged the mistake.
"I was wrong, before you start texting and emailing," she said, grinning at the audience.
This is how these people operate, Ah, shes a helluva Dr. and would make an awesome Surgeon General. And the thing is, Whoopi isnt even the dumbest old hag on the show, Joy Beho is.
