Jill Biden insists on being called “Dr.” As we previously reported, Joe Biden said that she went back to school later in life to get her doctoral degree, not because she wanted to provide some greater scholarship — which her Ed.D position paper certainly didn’t provide — but because she wanted the title.

Joe Biden once explained it was about the status. “She said, ‘I was so sick of the mail coming to Sen. and Mrs. Biden. I wanted to get mail addressed to Dr. and Sen. Biden.’ That’s the real reason she got her doctorate.”

That explains so much, like this Edith Wilson-type moment on Air Force One last year.

In case it wasn’t clear, that’s the presidential desk on the plane that she’s sitting in “prepping for the G7.” What was she prepping for? It’s like she wanted to play a role, and undercut Joe in the process, but didn’t seem concerned about that.

Perhaps it also explains why — instead of Joe Biden being retired and visiting with his grandchildren — he’s at the White House when he has such issues, and the position is so beyond his abilities at this point. The desire for status and power trumped sense and concern about what was best for the country.

So it’s ironic that–after all that–Joe Biden seems to have blown up any good feelings that people may have had about him before he took office. His ratings are in the basement, and he may just have beaten out Jimmy Carter for the worst of all time.

But, what about that status Jill Biden has craved so much?

Well, we have a new indicator of how interested — or not — Americans are in Jill Biden. It seems that, despite Democrats trying to sell her as the congenial “Dr.”, Americans aren’t interested.

The numbers are in on a new biography out on Jill Biden by two AP reporters. It costs $26 and it looks like either no one wants to pay that or no one wants to read about Jill. Only 250 copies sold in the first week of circulation, according to Politico. That’s abysmal, and it says something about Jill Biden.

The Politico article reports that journalists find it “boring and difficult” to cover the Biden Administration–and apparently, that applies to Jill as well. But maybe if they did their job and reported honestly about her, it wouldn’t be “boring.” But they’re not willing to delve or be critical.

Meanwhile, books about President Donald Trump are far more lucrative.

NPD BookScan, which tracks book sales in the U.S., said that prominent books about Trump released in his first two years of office outsold Biden books during his first year and a half by, what an official there said was, “essentially 10:1.”

Bottom line — people are interested in Trump, who’s still living rent-free in the minds of Democrats, as well. Biden, who they would like us to think is so popular? People just can’t give a darn. Jill isn’t going to like this at all.
