On Thursday night, Joe Biden had made an appearance at a CNN town hall event in Baltimore which was also his first-time visit since taking office.
The CNN town hall event was hosted by Anderson Cooper, they had Joe Biden answer questions for 90 minutes about topics including the economy, immigration, tensions with China, climate change, and the pandemic.
Even in this town hall event, Biden still continued to lie about the $3.5 trillion spending bill.
Cooper then asked Biden if how Jill Biden reacted after she found out that the free community college was scrapped by Joe’s plan.
And what Biden said only made him more like a weirdo in front of the people. He said that Jill made him sleep in the dog house…

This is not the first time that Joe Biden answered this way. While he was visiting schools in Virginia earlier this year as part of the “Getting America Back on Track” tour he also made the same statement.
Biden said, “By the way, I have to admit, if I didn’t have these positions I would be sleeping in the Lincoln bedroom, rather than the Vice Presidents – uh Presidents bedroom.”
The removal of free tuition can affect the opportunity of every American to make college more affordable and to prevent states from slashing higher education funding in the future.
According to the AP News report:
President Joe Biden’s long-sought goal of free community college appears to be a victim of cost-cutting in his social spending plan, dealing a major blow to his vision for a historic expansion of educational opportunity to all Americans.
Biden acknowledged as much in a televised town hall on Thursday night, citing the political realities created by Democratic holdout Sen. Joe Manchin and “one other person.”
Still, he pledged that the fight was not over. “I promise you — I guarantee you — we’re going to get free community college in the next several years and across the board.”
For Biden, it represents yet another setback to a plan he has been pushing for years. He backed a proposal for free community college in 2015 under the Obama administration, made it a key issue in his 2020 presidential campaign and has remained a staunch champion of the idea along with his wife, Jill, who teaches English at a community college.
During the CNN town hall, Biden pointed to other provisions in the legislation, including increased Pell Grants for low-income students, as a way to make up some of the difference.
