    Mexican H1N1 Swine Flu

    This is how Obama reacted to the Mexican H1N1 Swine Flu, but Obama never declared a national emergency until November 12, 2009.





    Obama: Swine Flu Cause for Concern, Not Alarm | Apr 27, 2009

    On April 26, 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services declared Swine Flu a public health emergency.[127] On October 24, 2009, President Barack Obama declared Swine Flu a national emergency in the United States.

    The left claims Trump didn't act fast enough. Obama gets on TV saying he's monitoring the flu and preparing "to do what ever it takes" to stop the spread of the Mexican Swine Flu. Apparently, closing the southern border and banning air travel to Mexico for other than immediate family of U.S. citizens and permanent residents was beyond what ever it takes. Obama declared a national emergency just 19 days before the CDC "reported an estimated 22 million Americans had been infected with 2009 A H1N1 and 4,000 Americans have died." Biden was Obama's VP what did he do during all this but nod his head and say yes boss! Folks need to call him on this one.

    Doesn't matter.

    Obama never let this flu become the monster we know today.

    Obama has never called H1N1 "a right-wing hoax".

    He never boasted, in the midst of the epidemic, that his press briefings attracted a larger audience than the Bachelor's either. Apart from fanatical Trumpster fanatics (of which you are one), you won't convince anyone that Obama underestimated H1N1.

    Like the narcissistic clown we all know, Trump treats this pandemic as another opportunity to flatter his oversized ego.

    To convince him to keep the containment measures beyond Easter, Fauci had to explain to him that the coronavirus could kill 2 million Americans.

    That's the kind of President you wholeheartedly support.

    To quote Ronald Reagan......"The trouble with our liberal friends is they know so much that simply isn't so"
