    "Under the title of “Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor,” Biden will lead the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, based out of Washington, D.C. The center, which is set to open later this year, will be focused on diplomacy, foreign policy and national security, according to a University statement released Tuesday morning."

    He was VP for 8 years. What's the problem?

    Why do people on the right always find random stories that are old and pass it off as new? The story is from 2017. Do some research on what has already happened! Sheesh!

    Yes. Unlike Trump where every moronic thing he says happens every day of the week. "We have this virus under control. Soon it will just be gone". "Let's open the beach and let the swimmers back into the water. This is hurting our economy. They got the shark". Oh wait, that last one was in Jaws. Easy to confuse the two.

    I think it has more to do with the leaders that don't have any human empathy in capitalist systems. Those who are leaders with human empathy in capitalist systems are doing the right thing and putting public safety first.

    Trump of course, has no empathy for human life, aside from his own. He doesn't care if a few million American die, so long as his economic numbers look good come November. That's who we have in office right now. Do we really need to say "I told you so", to him when the death tolls skyrocket out of control?

    Even then, he'll claim victory. And his followers will celebrate his leadership on the graves of American citizens. "He did the right thing. Money first".

    Perhaps you should heed your own advice. The reason this is in the news his because Biden himself resurrected it. In a recent statement he claimed that he became a Professor after leaving the Senate.

    Joe Biden claims to be University of Pennsylvania professor

    Mr. Biden has no one but himself for this imbroglio.

    So you are stating for the record that the government does not have this virus under control and it will not soon be gone. History will determine who are the morons.

    If he says we are going to send people back to work in a couple weeks, yes, I will go on record it will not soon be gone, but it will escalate out of control. Yes. That's what the health experts say.

    I'll go on record saying I'll trust the words of health experts over the fantasies of a delusional Reality TV show host in the White House. Yes. Are there examples of this in the world we can look at? Other countries perhaps?

    Denialism, which Trump is the world champion of, is not going to end the virus. It will get people killed needlessly.

    Only the right would whine about such a thing.

    You realize it's all just about saying, "See Trump isn't a complete clueless lying Buffoon. Biden said some dumb things too, if we look hard enough".

    President Trump has said he wants people to go back to work, not that the decision has been made that they are going back. Different things.

    If he is saying he wants people to go back to work, that it is okay to go back into the waters, so to speak, that is against all the disease control experts' advice, and it will lead to a greater spread of the pandemic in America. It is highly irresponsible and dangerous for him as President to go against the health experts in a time of crisis for the sake of money.

    Yes, put me on record saying that as well. If people follow his horrible, dangerous advice, they put everyone, including themselves at great risk. Do not listen to Trump.

    Do you have a problem with decisions made by higher education and thus prefer to micro-manage them to suit your own fancy? Would you have posted much the same if it was Trump out of office versus Biden who got the job?

    I do believe it's really very clear what your motivation here is, and it really has nothing to do with higher education and the universities that are quite capable of making their own decisions without your "help".

    No one cares what Cadet Bone Spurs wants. And neither should you. The man is a disgrace. Been that way his whole life.

    It's utterly pathetic watching Biden being carried through this primary. The guy is in such cognitive decline he has trouble completing a sentence. They guy shouldn't even be driving a car much less driving the country. The DNC and the mainstream media have been handling him with kid gloves and giving him a free ride at every turn. And they expect him to share a debate stage with Trump??? A guy who has no shame in hitting below the belt?? This is how low we have sunk.

    You want it to be that President Trump and his Administration experts have different positions and division. They don’t. Since President Trump isn’t “going against the health experts” your point is moot.

    These health experts are in agreement with President Trump. So, yes, we should certainly listen to the President of the United States, especially over the opinion of an internet denizen, even if his moniker is Windwalker.

    So pathetic, and I'm not referring to Biden. :(

    Two years ago, Lindsey Graham referred to Biden as being probably the most moral politician he ever has known, and even recently Meghan McCain has said much the same, and they're both Republicans.

    Thus, the problem is not so much with Biden than it is with those who fabricate stories to denigrate those in the other political "tribe" while blindly praising the super-hero in their own "tribe".

    On the contrary, nobody cares what some anonymous guy on the internet (that includes you) versus the opinion of the elected President of the United States.

    In case you didn't know, Biden has "fought" a stuttering problem all his life and, I have heard some specialists say, this can cause some verbal blunders. And he is getting old :). But such things pale in comparison to the things Trump says - intentionally, IMHO.
