WATCH: Another disastrous live-stream—Joe Biden falsely claims he was once ‘a professor’

To what degree will Biden provide falsity? Here's an academic one.

Either Joe Biden is a pathological liar or his symptoms of dementia are getting the better of him. Here we go again with another Biden whopper or cognitive dream sequence. During yet another disastrous live-stream, Biden made a false claim that after he left the Senate he was a “professor.”

That’s completely untrue. Biden has never taught a class—not once. To merely use his name, University of Pennsylvania paid Biden handsomely. Once again, Biden using his prestige and power to line his pockets.

But Penn probably didn’t pay Biden for what he would bring to the classroom or lecture hall, according to higher-education experts. Instead, the school was likely paying for something less tangible: the prestige of associating with a former vice president and senator who had burnished his reputation as a global figure.

“I know that it sounds like a really big salary for not teaching, and that’s right, but even if he were teaching, that’s not the value that Penn is hoping to get from having him associated with them,” said Temple University’s Douglas Webber, who studies the economics of higher education. “They’re wanting prestige, they’re wanting to brag about this to donors. Penn plays with big money donors, and if this moves the needle even a little bit in terms of getting a big donation, then it’s instantly worth the investment.” [The Philadelphia Inquirer]

The media is giving Biden a pass on all of these flubs. Perhaps they can’t keep up with them. Biden needs his own full-time “fact-checker.” But the truth of the matter is that this is all part of the media’s plan to try and prop up this “candidate.”
