On Tuesday morning, Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes was ignored by the establishment media. Biden cheered Holmes for her 2015 “maintaining highest standards” in developing low-cost blood tests using only one prick of blood. However, the establishment media ignored Biden’s praise for Holmes. She was found guilty Monday of four fraud charges and for her failed invention.
The Wall Street Journal and Washington Post carried headlines Tuesday morning about Holmes’ fraud conviction without mentioning the president’s involvement.
Biden met Holmes in 2015 and the Theranos founder praised it on social media. Holmes spoke highly of Vice President Biden’s visit to Theranos, where he participated in a summit on preventive health care.
This roundtable was created as a call for action. Because we can’t change the health care system from being reactive to proactive, it’s up to leaders in health to come together. The Vice President is the best at this because he has dedicated his entire career to taking bold actions to improve people’s lives.
Biden spoke highly of Holmes and Theranos during the meeting. Breitbart News reported:
After touring the facility together with Holmes, Biden stated, “This is the laboratory for the future.” He added that “you can just walk through this facility and see what innovation means.” He said, “The fact you are voluntarily submitting all your tests to FDA is a sign of your confidence in your work.”
Talk about being inspired. This is the definition of inspiration. “It is incredible to me, Elizabeth,” Biden stated.
Holmes was invited to attend the Obama White House State Dinner with Shinzo Abe, the Japanese Prime Minister. He was then appointed Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship.
