Wednesday on “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg made a cringeworthy recommendation for Joe Biden’s wife to be Surgeon General.
Dr. Jill Biden has no medical experience and her background is in teaching English.
The DailyBeast reports “I’m hoping Dr. Jill becomes the Surgeon General, his wife,” she exclaimed, prompting Karl to awkwardly laugh.
“Joe Biden’s wife,” Goldberg continued. “She would never do it but, yeah, she’s a hell of a doctor. She’s an amazing doctor.”
Liberal co-host Joy Behar appeared entirely confused by Goldberg’s claim, and McCain chimed in that she believes Biden isn’t actually a medical doctor.
“I could be wrong,” Goldberg replied.
“She’s a teacher but might be good for [Secretary of Education] Betsy DeVos’s post,” co-host Sunny Hostin stepped in. Behar excitedly declared in response, “Yes, perfect!”
Jill Biden has spent much of her career teaching English in high school and community college, and received a doctoral degree in education from the University of Delaware in 2007. The current U.S. surgeon general, Jerome Adams, is an anesthesiologist who previously served as Indiana’s state health commissioner.
Following a commercial break, Goldberg addressed her on-air faux pas.
“I was wrong about his wife,” she said. “I was wrong, before you start texting and emailing.”
