Today’s quote, sorry to say, comes from the increasingly scary presumptive Democrat presidential nominee, Joe Biden.
Yesterday, in rambling out an “answer” to an 18 year old who asked him what he is doing to connect with young people who supported Bernie Sanders, Biden actually said this:
“When I left the United States Senate, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania…I’ve spent a lot of time on campus with college students.”
Uh…do you recall reading about Joe Biden taking on a professorship at UPenn?
Probably not, since, as pointed out in Jame Varney’s article for the Washington Times, Biden never was one.
In reality (as opposed to what Mr. Biden said), UPenn named him an “honorary professor”.
This was not – repeat, NOT – a teaching position. Joe Biden never taught so much as one class there.
But he did show up at a few high-profile events…for which he was paid $900,000 by the school.
In other words, he was not a professor at all. He was given an honorary title, then paid a ton of money for doing nothing other than just showing up and giving UPenn the “prestige” of a former Vice President being on campus.
Well, at least it’s more than what his son, Hunter Biden, did to get millions and millions of dollars from Ukraine. Hunter didn’t even bother to show up for the money.
And, as Varney points out, this is not the first time Joe Biden has made this wholly bogus claim:
Campaigning last month in South Carolina, according to the Daily Wire, Mr. Biden said that when he left the White House in 2017, instead of “taking a Wall Street job,” he “became a teacher, became a professor.”
I award Quote Of The Day “honors” for showing that, despite the increasingly voluminous evidence that his mental acuity is seriously diminished, he still does display at least one talent.
Unfortunately, however, the talent is lying about his background.
