Trump and The Wuhan Bat-Soup-Chinka-Virus?
Obama Let 1000 People Die Before Declaring a National Emergency
HOW many people died before Trump declared?
Obama Waited Until Millions Of Americans Were Infected With Swine Flu, 1000
Died, Before Acting
Democrats and their left-wing media minions have wasted no time politicizing
the coronavirus outbreak to attack President Trump. Unfortunately for them, the
facts smack them in the face.
This week, the New York Times called the coronavirus the "Trumpvirus," and the
rest of the Left gleefully cheered for a stock market crash in the hopes that
it'll hurt Trump's chances for reelection.
Notably, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senator Chuck Schumer, and Democratic
presidential candidates Joe Biden and Mike Bloomberg accused President Trump of
waiting too long to counteract the spread of the coronavirus.
Many on the Left also trashed Trump's reaction to the coronavirus as
However, as PJ Media pointed out, the Left said nothing in 2009, when Barack
Obama waited for six months after the swine flu (H1N1 virus) had infected
millions of Americans and killed more than 1,000 people in the United States
before declaring it a public health emergency.
Naturally, the Left did not criticize Obama for his delayed, limp-wristed
reaction to the pandemic.
In October 2009 - six months after the H1N1 virus had become a global pandemic
- Obama declared a national emergency to deal with the rapid spread of the
swine flu across the United States. CNN reported:
"Since the H1N1 flu pandemic began in April , millions of people in the
United States have been infected.
At least 20,000 have been hospitalized and more than 1,000 have died, said
Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and
In contrast, President Trump declared the coronavirus a national emergency in
January - just weeks after the coronavirus was first observed in Wuhan, China
As a precaution, Trump also wisely restricted travel from China into the United
States in response to the virus. Predictably, the unhinged Left reacted by
calling the President a racist.
Many leftists have also rabidly slammed President Trump as a racist for wanting
to build a wall to secure the U.S. border. However, the swine flu came into the
U.S. from Mexico, according to the Virology Journal: "The swine-origin
influenza A (H1N1) virus that appeared in 2009 and was first found in human
beings in Mexico."
Here's a flashback of Obama urging Americans in 2009 to wash their hands after
the H1N1 virus had already exploded into a global pandemic. Obama also exhorted
Americans to remain calm instead of panicking.
Meanwhile, when President Trump urged Americans to wash their hands and remain
calm at a press conference this week, the Left mocked him and accused him of
downplaying the coronavirus.
By now, most people are aware of the media's left-wing bias and the
pathological Trump Derangement Syndrome that causes them to blame Trump for
anything bad that happens to anyone, anywhere in the world.
Donald Trump Jr. said he's disgusted that the Left are rabidly hoping that the
coronavirus hurts the U.S. economy and sickens Americans if it means they can
use it against his father.
"Anything that they can use to try to hurt Trump, they will," Don Jr. told Fox
& Friends. "Anything he does in a positive sense... they will not give him
credit for. The playbook is old at this point. But for them to take a pandemic
and seemingly hope that it comes here, and kills millions of people so that
they could end Donald Trump's streak of winning is a new level of sickness."
Don Jr. continued: "I don't know if this is coronavirus or Trump Derangement
Syndrome, but these people are infected badly. Now those same Democrats - when
my father shut down travel to and from China - were saying, 'It's an
overreaction! You're being xenophobic!' Now they're flipping that. They can
have it both ways because no one in the media will actually cover themselves
honestly. That's what's going on. And I think the American people have seen it
for what it is. It's an absolute travesty."
