Joe the Professor [*eyeroll*]

Joe the Professor [*eyeroll*]

Last night during his softball town hall, Joe Biden said if he loses the election he will “go back to being a professor.”


He’s the modern-day, real life Professor Kingsfield from “The Paper Chase.” John Houseman has nothin’ on Professor Joe!

Problem is, it’s hard to “go back to being a professor” when you never really were one in the first place.

As is usually the case when dealing with Joe Biden’s flights of fancy, reality is wildly different.

See, in 2017 the University of Pennsylvania gave Joe a symbolic position that was really nothing more than a title and an overblown salary.

Joe was dubbed the “Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor.”

And how many classes did Joe teach?

Zero. Zip. Nada.

The symbolic role, for which Joe earned $776,527.00, consisted of making four speeches in two years.

But up there in the magical world of Joe Biden’s dementia-addled brain, giving four speeches over the course of two years has morphed into “I was a professor!”

In a rather scathing piece from 2019 about Joe’s symbolic “professorship,” Philly Magazine wrote this:

What, then, does Biden actually do for all that money at Penn? It’s a good question — one student journalists at the Daily Pennsylvanian have been asking since his appointment. But maybe it makes sense: Passing from vice president to non-teaching Penn prof is a pretty seamless progression from sinecure to sinecure, when you think about it.

Penn spokesperson Stephen MacCarthy says there are indeed job duties attached to Biden’s role, namely expanding Penn’s “global outreach” and “sharing his wisdom and insights with thousands of Penn students through seminars, talks and classroom visits.” (Biden’s Penn events have included talks with former Mexico president Felipe Calderón and a former deputy prime minister of the United Kingdom.)

But it sounds to us like Biden’s professorship is really more of speaking residency. He’s been on campus so infrequently that it becomes news when he actually is there.

Leave it to old Joe to turn this largely symbolic, no-show paid position into “I am a professor at the University of Pennsylvania!”

This isn’t the first time Joe claimed that he became a professor after leaving office. He’s brought it up on numerous occasions during the campaign — no doubt to make himself look far smarter than he actually is.

And I think when Joe first started telling this lie, he knew he was lying. But now? Who knows? As I said the other day, in Joe’s mashed potato brain, fact and fiction have blended together to the point where Joe doesn’t know which is which. So by now, it’s very possible that Joe doesn’t even realize that in the two years he was paid by UPenn, he never once taught a single, solitary class.

    I doubt that Joe even knows what the truth is anymore. I bet he can actually say that he did nothing wrong in regards to the explosive Hunter Biden computer expose because he can’t remember that far back. And since he is such a wonderful and smart guy he can’t have done anything wrong or immoral or illegal.

    Given the pathetic state of “education” today Biden is probably sharper than most Department Heads at most “universities”. I hope DJT makes top to bottom reform of “education” in his second term. It has turned into a grossly overpriced waste of time for most “students”. Everything (!!) Leftists touch is destroyed. They have been working their magic on “education” for a half-century. Wonder why most young people sound like that beauty pageant girl in 2007.

      OMG, I had never seen that. So sad, she just became another “blonde joke”.
