Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to have made some factual errors during a virtual roundtable on Wednesday regarding this claim that he "became a professor" after leaving the Senate.
During an online campaign event, Biden took questions from young people and while discussing the student debt crisis, Biden spoke about all the time he had spent on "campus."
"When I left the United States Senate, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania," Biden said. "And I've spent a lot of time -- and the University of Delaware has the Biden School as well, so I've spent a lot of time on campus with college students."
Biden, quite notably, became vice president of the United States under President Obama when he left the Senate in 2009. It was, however, in 2017 when he received the title of "Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor" from the University of Pennsylvania.
Greg Price ✔ @greg_price11 So Biden just said "when I left the United States Senate, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania."
That's not true. He never taught a class.https://dailycaller.com/2020/02/28/biden-penn-professor-south-carolina/

In addition, Kate Bedingfield, a spokesperson for Biden at the time who now serves as his deputy campaign manager, told the paper, "He will not be teaching classes.
Biden similarly claimed he "became a teacher" on the campaign trail back in February although he didn't specifically say where he taught.

Lol. Funny picture
What’s going on with the son these days?
Joe Biden “The Absentminded Professor.”
And they say Trump is a liar?
He became a professor of what?
I saw this on Aces site.
Biden is also royalty, he has the hat from Burger King to prove it!
He's self quarantining. He was in the same state as somebody that tested positive.
Fact Checkers saaaaaaaaaaaaay: “Totally True.”
I wonder why a university wouldn't let him. It's probably the Alzheimer's.
Was there ever a better argument for term limits or at least repealing the 17th Amendment then the buffoon Biden & his corrupt clan?
Thank you Delaware voters for having shown for 36+ years the civic awareness of a garden slug !
Jeez...Biden is, and always has been, the classic neighborhood bar BULLSHITTER.
That’s ok. I’m a Fellow at Yale.
Well, at the very least I’m a Fellow :)
I guess he didn’t become a speech professor.
I wonder if joe got the professor gig by claiming he is part Delaware indian. Its been known to work in some circles.
Hussein got away with claiming to be a law professor when had only been a.lecturer.
He’s told this lie before.
The new Prof. Irwin Corey.
It is difficult to put an adjective to the Biden candidacy. “Tragic” does not cut it, nor does “comical,” nor “absurd.” No need to use a pejorative, for even that does not capture things quite right. Maybe the English language can coin the word, and Joe plagiarize it.
