As liberals seethe over what they claim is a lacking response to the Chinese coronavirus from President Donald Trump’s administration, it’s worth nothing that previous health epidemics in the United States have been met with a far more lenient response, even after they infected far more Americans.
President Barack Obama only designated the 2009 swine flu, or H1N1, a national emergency months after the WHO declared the disease a global pandemic in June.
Reliable liberal “fact-checking” groups such as Snopes have sought to debunk what they falsely claim are erroneous statements on the part of President Trump, who has pointed to the 2009 Swine Flu response as a “disaster.” But they simply ignore that a true national emergency has been declared only weeks after the first American coronavirus diagnosis.
President Obama only declared a swine flu national emergency months after the disease had infected a million people in the United States.
Obama’s national emergency was declared in October 2009. This was six months after the Department of Health and Human Services designated it as an “emergency” in April 2009. The World Health Organization declared it a global emergency in June, four months before Obama’s national emergency.
A million Americans alone had already been stricken with the Swine flu months before the national emergency. Swine flu had caused 87 deaths by June. As of Friday, the Center for Disease Control’s latest figures indicate that Chinese coronavirus has caused 41 deaths- less than half of what swine flu inflicted, all without the national emergency declaration President Trump has enacted.
President Trump declared a coronavirus national emergency the same week the World Health Organization declared a global pandemic.
If there’s a President who truly dropped the ball when it came to a pandemic disease, it’s likely Trump’s predecessor.

Biden Says President “Has To Be Able to Provide For Providing Significantly No More Masks”
Joe Biden’s filled his latest livestream from the recreation room of his Delaware home with a smorgasbord of bizarre verbal gaffes, lining up incomprehensible sentences throughout the MSNBC segment.
The former Vice President seemed to lose his grasp on his phrasing in a pronounced fashion closer to the end of the segment, stating that President Donald Trump “has to be able to provide for providing significantly no more masks to protect these – these first responders and these docs and nurses.”
When asked about his primary message on the federal response to the virus by MSNBC’s Yasmin Vossoughian, Biden gave a seemingly contradictory answer.
“My message is that the president has to move more rapidly. You know, we know from experience that speed matters. We know that you can’t go too fast. It’s about going too slow.”
Biden’s elaboration on his statement didn’t seem to provide much clarification.
“And in order to avoid that – those very high numbers, we have to do at least several things. One, we have to depend on what the president is going to do right now. And first of all, he has to tell, wait until the cases, before anything happens. Look, the whole idea is, he’s got to get in place things that were shortages of.”
Watch the segment here:
The segment isn’t the first time that the presumptive Democratic nominee has struggled to express his train of thought. Since physical campaign events have been put on hold by the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, Biden has consistently given livestream appearances chock full of unclear sentences.
Leading podcaster Joe Rogan expressed his frustration with the Democratic Party’s unwillingness to question his mental acuity in response to footage of Biden’s livestream statements. Some leading Democrats have even expressed frustration in regards to the seeming irrelevance of Biden’s daily cable appearances, when compared to the vigorous press briefings of both President Donald Trump and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
