    You specifically labeled some lies as "stand out" lies, what would be a "stand out" lie ??

    If he taught anything I would've thought it would be showering with your daughter.

    LOL

    I was wondering when something like this would appear. I hadn't seen this when I posted my "anything Donald Trump......"

    Except this statement wasn't a lie. He didn't teach any full, semester-long courses at Penn, but he did give lectures and hold one-off seminars for students on political science topics.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden came to campus on Feb. 28 to deliver a lecture to students enrolled in William Lauder's leadership course.

    Since his formal appointment as the Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor" a year ago, Biden has increased his engagement with the University. Last year, the former VP came to speak on campus three times, attracting a full house of students, staff, and faculty at each event. Earlier this year, Biden also officiated the opening of the Penn Biden Center alongside President Amy Gutmann and NBC News anchor Andrea Mitchell.

    He was also one of the panelists at this year's Silfen Forum where he discussed the importance of immigration to American identity. At the packed event, Biden argued that there is no compelling evidence that immigration has led to economic dislocation in the United States.

    None of that says he taught political theory. A lecture, speaking engagements, officiating, panel discussion are not teaching a course.

    He didn't say that he taught a course. But he did give a number of lectures and participate in a number of forums at Penn on political topics. Yes, Joe Biden does have a tendency to exaggerate his life experience, but this statement is technically accurate.

    This is what he said: "I taught at the University of Pennsylvania for four years and I used to teach political theory."
