    A bit dramatic.

    Trump was the only world leader, I knew of, referring to Covid as "The China Virus".

    I'm not sure how anybody couldn't see how offensive that could be to Chinese Americans, or any Chinese person in North America.

    There is a reason no one calls a lawyer "Doctor" . J D stands for juris doctor but it doesn't mean you have a doctorate. It is just the very basic law degree without even any specialization . There is another title for that ... J S D or SJD...Doctor of Juridical Science, that you get after extended study of the law and in that line of study you write and defend a dissertation.

    so to be an attorney and be rightfully called "Dr" you would have to study an additional 3 years or so in a specialized area like constitutional law, , write a dissertation and get your JSD degree. Your typical practicing lawyer will not go this route, It is basically for those who go into teaching at a very high level or research

    However in college unless we had been instructed otherwise, we were to call all of our professors who had doctorates "Doctor". Didn't matter if they had a PHD in Economics, History, Theater or Music, we were to call them Doctor unless they told us not to

    just reread the post and you will see that he is actually saying that FLOTUS are hyper criticized and can't win....so it really isn't worth it to try, Might as well dodge the heat by doing nothing

    which is pretty much what Melania did.

    so you can apologize to D2 once you see the error of your ways

    The reason we are still told to call professors with PhDs as “doctor” is that’s actually where the word comes from.

    Now, as a matter of linguistics, usage determines meaning. So if we continue to specialize the term doctor to only mean physicians, then that’s the way it’s going to be.

    However, if you look backwards, the English word doctor comes from the Latin word for teacher. It meant someone with enough education they had the right to teach.

    We started referring to physicians as doctors after doctor also began being used as a verb, first to say they doctored you or awarded you the title of doctor. Physicians were previously referred to as “leeches,” a Germanic term for counselor, healer, or enchanter.

    To doctor means to change things, and so eventually it was used to refer to people as medical doctors, especially as surgery or surgeons became more common.

    Anecdotally, the medical doctors I know refer to themselves as physicians and their title is Doctor, much like a professor might refer to themselves as an economist but their title would still be Doctor.

    Why is Biden always squinting like a vampire who hates light?

    Is it just from so many facelifts?

    But that's to be expected. She's a liberal on a liberal network. How about the constant bootlicking Hannity gave Trump in every interview? It's to be expected from those partisan networks.

    The WH press corps should be asking tough questions of our elected leaders.

    I don't really care about the title doctor. I just think that if you are a physician, well the name carries a bit more weight. Don't care about the semantics. If I decided to put that Dr in front of my name I actually would be a bit embarrassed. Just like I am a veteran but don't publicize it on my car, wear hats, shirts, etc. Reason why is I didn't do anything but serve. I wasn't on the front line. While in the Navy, I never went "haze grey and underway" Did all my time on shore. Closest thing to combat I saw was playing war games on Iceland and being in boot camp during the first Gulf War.

    To other veterans I am a light weight. I don't belong to any clubs or anything because I am a bit ashamed that I don't deserve the right to say "veteran" I think those who risked their lives do. So kind of feel the way with Dr. You save lives or try to make people's lives better, you get the title. If you simply are just into history, well just go by your first and last name.

    Sure your education is an accomplishment and nobody is wrong for flaunting it. I just think a different way

    We had a guy at my company who insisted everyone call him Dr Elias (i think his name was) because he was a doctor in literature or something. Everyone hated that guy.
