JOE Biden has claimed he became an Ivy League professor after leaving the Senate despite never teaching a class.

The 77-year-old appeared to get confused during a virtual roundtable while taking questions from students about the debt crisis.

The former Vice President was speaking to students when he made the claim

The former Vice President is favorite to become the Democrats candidate to take on Donald Trump in this year’s presidential election.

But his campaign has been marred by a series of gaffes, the latest of which concerned his career after leaving the Senate.

“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 famously became vice president under President Obama when he left the Senate in 2009.

It wasn’t until 2017 that he received the title of “Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor” from the University of Pennsylvania.

His then spokesperson Kate Bedingfield, who now is now his deputy campaign manager, told the the Daily Pennsylvania at the time: “He will not be teaching classes.”

Biden is known for making confusing and controversial statements during his campaign.

He mistakenly referred to New Hampshire as Nevada on the night of the state’s first-in-the-nation primary.

During a confused campaign speech in South Carolina he told a rally: “My name’s Joe Biden and I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate.”

While campaigning in Iowa in September, Biden said the 1968 assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy happened in the 1970s.

He also confused the timeline of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Parkland, Florida in February 2018, saying said he was in office at the time when he’d already left the White House.

Biden also incorrectly claimed that 150 million people in the U.S. had been killed by guns, when the actual figure was 150,000.

He also admitted he was not actually arrested in South Africa when he tried to meet Nelson Mandela in the 1970s as he previously claimed.
