Thursday was not the first time he brandished his supposed credentials as a former professor at the University of Pennsylvania.
After leaving the White House, Biden was given the title Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor at the University of Pennsylvania.
Biden’s claim to have been a professor has been looked into previously, with Snopes determining in April 2022 that “this role was honorary.” While Biden held the honorary post, he made about $900,000. He gave roughly a dozen lectures and talks but never taught a full semester’s course. Nor did he conduct any research or have any administrative responsibilities.
It doesn’t just end with make-believe professions that Biden has claimed to have. He recently said that he lost his eldest son in Iraq just to try and relate to voters on inflation. Now, Joe’s son did not die in Iraq but also, what the hell does Iraq have to do with inflation? According to Biden, everything.
“They talk about inflation … inflation is a worldwide problem right now because of a war in Iraq and the impact on oil and what Russia’s doing … excuse me, the war in Ukraine,” the president said. “I’m thinking about Iraq because that’s where my son died.”
Beau Biden passed away after a battle with brain cancer in May 2015 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., at the age of 46. He returned from a yearlong deployment to Iraq in September 2009, where he served as a military lawyer in a Delaware National Guard brigade.
Democrats and the media need to stop humoring Biden and pretending that he’s just a ‘harmless old man’. There is nothing harmless about how Biden just naturally changes facts to fit the narrative at that moment. It just feels orchestrated, to me. Like he’s just betting that someone out there will believe him and they undoubtedly do because no one is calling him out!
