Remember how former vice president and election-stealer Joe Biden promised that if elected, his administration would cure cancer?
The not-yet-certfied President-elect initially made his bold proclamation at a campaign event in Iowa in June of 2019.
CNN’s Kate Bolduan was so dumbfounded by Biden’s comment that she challenged the former VP’s campaign co-chairman Rep. Cedric Richmond about it during a segment on her show.
Who are we to question the legitimacy of Biden’s promise to cure cancer? Sure, Biden has about as much credibility on predicting the future as a Magic 8-Ball, but that’s no reason to doubt his claim.
Further, the Biden Cancer Initiative has raised millions of dollars to “develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research and care and to reduce disparities in cancer outcomes.”
Unfortunately, none of the millions of dollars the Biden Cancer Initiative was paid out in grants, nor did it go to research. Instead, donors’ millions went to pay the salaries of former Washington DC aides.
Filthy Facts: The Biden Cancer Initiative raised $4,809,619 in contributions in fiscal years 2017 and 2018, and spent $3,070,301 on payroll in those two years. The group’s president, Gregory Simon, raked in $429,850 in fiscal 2018 (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019), according to the charity’s most recent federal tax filings, as reported by Fox Business.
Curing Cancer Without a Cancer Initiative: After only two years, the charity “paused” its operations when Biden and his wife stepped down for Joe Biden’s presidential run.
Nothing says “We’ll cure cancer” like shutting down your “let’s cure cancer foundation.”
Reality Check: “Cancer” is a catch-all name for hundreds and maybe even thousands of types of diseases.
