Biden visited Elizabeth Holmes' Theranos HQ in 2015 while he was VP and gushed that the fraudster's 'achievements' were 'amazing and inspiring'

I have to wonder about the headline of that story. It singles out Joe Biden, as if he should have been prescient enough to see through a scam that was deceiving everyone at the time and was only brought to justice fully 6 years later. The real story is surely the celebrities who invested in EH and lost big time:-

Quote:
Her wealthiest and most high profile victims include Rupert Murdoch, who lost $125m and the DeVos family - including Trump-era Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who invested $100m.

Other notable figures who lost large amounts include former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who invested $3 million, ex-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who lost $85 million, and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who invested $1 million.

Also duped was the Walton family, who own Walmart. They sunk a cool $150 million into Theranos.
That Biden was among many who took EH's claims at face value hardly justifies pulling his name out of the hat of hundreds who were deceived. He wasn't duped out of millions of dollars and to single him out for the headline is a blatant example of a newspaper article trying to bash Biden at any price, imo.
Shouldn't a headline focus on the most essential element of the story that follows? In this case, it would be "Fraud Scam Scams People Fraudulently!"
Now that's the way to sell newspapers.

And today, the real headline for a Joe Biden Love Thread:-

His speech on Jan 6, 2022. Go Biden!

I hate it when the press is mean to the most powerful person in the world just to sell more copies of the evening newspaper. When you print all manner of traducement and vilification about nice old Joe, the hot-off-the-press copies are going like hotcakes! Very very unfair!

What I like is when the media give him his due and celebrate him for speaking truth to power!

If we're blaming Biden for visiting with Homes, wait until you see the D.C. A-listers that served on her board.

I'm sure this really hurt Kissinger's reputation.

Listen, the Bombing of Cambodia was a matter of perspective.

Well, let's not get deflected by Psy-Fi's mis-placed non story. Big picture: In yesterday's speech, Biden defended your right to vote and spelled out the truth about the 2020 election results:-



^ No need to watch all 9 mins of what is almost certainly biased reporting, but the clip is there if anyone wants to focus on the actual issues surrounding Biden and yesterday's speech.

Is he still calling for unity with the people who think he stole the election like a dumb bitch?

I have hope on this one. He still needs to pony up on the Student Debt promise but since voting rights is in the politicians interest, I'm hopeful.
