Last night, during Biden’s BIG acceptance speech, he acted like if elected he’ll magically find a way to stop COVID from destroying our lives and our country. Because you know, he and Obama did such a bang-up job of dealing with H1N1 back in 2009.
No, they didn’t.
But you know, oRaNgE mAn Bad.

From the Wall Street Journal:
Democrats even claim Mr. Biden saved lives in 2014. Michelle Obama: “Our leaders had worked hand in hand with scientists to help prevent an Ebola outbreak from becoming a global pandemic.” Ms. Harris last week: “Remember that pandemic? Barack Obama and Joe Biden did their job. Only two people died in the United States.”
Ebola is a terrifying disease, but outbreaks tend to happen only in very poor nations, and if caught early the virus is difficult to transmit outside hospitals. Anthony Fauci said in 2014 that a U.S. outbreak was “very, very, very unlikely.” Mr. Obama told Americans to chill out: “Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch. It’s not transmitted through the air like the flu.”
The Ebola example is designed to divert attention from a more relevant comparison: the H1N1 swine-flu outbreak of 2009-10. Democrats don’t like to talk about H1N1, because it didn’t go well. If it had been as deadly as Covid-19, the toll would have been catastrophic. The history is a powerful reminder that governments can’t stop a virus—although they can make epidemics worse.
Governments can’t stop a virus.
So many people just forget !

Or they forget because the media loves to spin it … as long as it makes Biden or Obama look better.
Wait I thought it was Ebola they saved us from!

And yet we still weren’t under lockdown the media gave him a free pass. This virus has one goal to remove Donald Trump.

It is certainly beginning to feel that way, that’s for sure.
