“Dr. Jill needs reading glasses,” he said. “Either that, or she’s illiterate. There are typos everywhere, including in the first graph of the introduction. Dr. Jill can’t write. She can’t really think clearly either. . “

In his critique of her thesis, Carlson pointed to numerical inconsistencies, saying that parts “appear to be written in a foreign language in English words” and are “pure nonsense”.

He also argued that the incoming first lady and others are using “false” credentials to “justify their power over you.”
