The media and politicians have been conveniently forgetting about the 2009 H1N1 pandemic during Obama’s presidency. The H1N1 or Swine Flu was devastating to the US because over twelve thousand Americans died.
Here’s a history lesson for Speaker Pelosi:
—H1N1 pandemic was in 2009
—Estimated 60 mil cases
—12,469 deaths in the US
The number of deaths in America due to the coronavirus pandemic is now around 1,000. Deaths from coronavirus WORLDWIDE still haven’t reached as many deaths as the number of deaths from influenza just in the US this year, which are at 22,000 right now.
In the video below, Nancy Pelosi says COVID-19 is “a pandemic that we haven’t even seen, since, for over 100 years.”

Remember the swine flu in 2009? The politicized media doesn’t want anyone to remember how poorly Obama handled the pandemic. In contrast, the biased media has criticized every single move that President Trump has made from the beginning of the coronavirus.
One item to note: The World Health Organization (WHO) declared H1N1/Swine flu a global pandemic in June 2009. President Obama declared it a national emergency in October 2009.
While Democrats say that they want to come together and be bipartisan, they do the opposite. The media has politicized this pandemic in partnership with the Democrats. In fact, there was no media panic with Obama’s swine flue like there is with Trump’s coronavirus outbreak.
The difference in statistics is huge but you won’t see this on mainstream media.
-59 million Americans got H1N1 Swine Flu when Obama was President
-265,000+ were hospitalized
The US has 37 dead of the coronavirus and there will likely be more.
Thanks to President Trump’s aggressive measures with travel restrictions in January, the deaths could be much lower.
A fantastic thread from RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel gives a timeline of everything President Trump has done to prevent the spread of the coronavirus:
