Dr. Zeke Emanuel, who served as COVID19 adviser to then-President-elect Joe Biden, has some thoughts when it comes to investigating the origins of the COVID19 pandemic:

Wow! Biden sure can pick ’em, huh?

Our thoughts exactly.
The real issue is not why a mass murderer escaped a prison, the real issue is how we can learn Krav Maga to try to fend off the murderer when he shows up at our door.

You know, for an alleged science-following medical professional, Zeke Emanuel’s approach to pandemic prevention is decidedly anti-science.
It seems to me that understanding how this one happened would be useful in trying to prevent it from happening again.

If we don't know how it happened, how do we protect ourselves? https://t.co/dJPDIwHSKl

Isn’t part of knowing how to deal with next pandemic understanding how this one happened? The water carrying for China over the last 14 months has been mind boggling.

This is particularly interesting since the question of "how did this happen" is

Pretty sure understanding *how* it happened is relevant to protecting ourselves next time, you absolute partisan hack. https://t.co/PNlU8wr3bz

Given Zeke Emanuel’s previous comments about elderly members of the population, it’s not really surprising that he’d be so meh about investigating the origins of a disease that is particularly dangerous to elderly members of the population.
The man’s a ghoul — and an intellectually dishonest one, at that.
Funny how root causes don't matter in some areas when they're paramount in others.

cool, you know, now that i think about it, we don’t need to know how Jan. 6 happened, just how we can protect ourselves from it happening again.
