The Bidens have a nasty habit of getting paid a lot of money for doing absolutely nothing. Joe Biden told supporters that he has worked as a professor. That is a lie. he got paid as a professor but as far as working is concerned, he never taught a single class despite being paid $776,527. That's double what the average professor at Penn malkes but those professors made the mistake of actually teaching classes.
The Daily Caller contacted Penn and asked them if Joe Biden had actually taught any classes at all. They were told no and said that Biden's job entailed working with the Penn Biden Center, which opened in 2018. Biden is currently on a leave of absence from doing nothing. The university spokesperson did not elaborate on what Biden's actual duties entail.
Vice President Joe Biden claims he “became a professor” after leaving the White House in 2017, but reports from the time say neither he nor the university that hired him expected him to teach any classes, and students and faculty were confused about what he would be doing.
Biden made the claim Wednesday at a campaign event in Georgetown, South Carolina, saying he “became a teacher, became a professor” rather than “taking a Wall Street job” before his book about his son, Beau, released. The University of Pennsylvania did indeed make Biden the “Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor” in 2017, but neither the school nor Biden expected him to teach any classes, according to comments at the time.
“He will not be teaching classes,” Biden spokesperson Kate Bedingfield said in 2017.
One article at The Daily Pennsylvanian featured the headline “No One Is Really Sure What Joe Biden Will Be Doing At Penn.”
UPenn announced Biden’s hiring on February 7, just a week after he left office, and by the end of February Biden’s role was “still uncertain” and “being ironed out,” University spokesperson Stephen MacCarthy told the Pennsylvanian.
