(HorizonPost.com) – Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden said during a speech that if President Donald Trump doesn’t essentially concede and start working with his transition team, many Americans will die from COVID-19. He believes that this is a huge stumbling block to getting the vaccine to 300 million-plus Americans. This concern seems like it might be a bit disingenuous, considering the views of one of his picks for his team.
Dr. Zeke Emanuel was a part of the team picked by former President Barack Obama to develop Obamacare and he’s certainly a controversial figure. He’s the author of an essay from 2014 titled “Why I Hope to Die at 75” saying of that age, “it robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world.”
HORRIFYING: Biden appoints Dr. Zeke Emanuel to his COVID task force. Emanuel: "I hope to die at 75."
This man is now in charge of protecting the nation's elderly.https://t.co/ky287nRAe1

Dr. Emanuel is also co-author of a paper outlining his “Fair Priority Model” for any vaccines, which would see them distributed globally based on certain metrics he developed. Not only do those conflict with WHO guidelines, but they also put other countries in front of the United States, rendering Biden’s argument moot.
