Barack Obama Pops Off About the Coronavirus, Praises Mass Hysteria and Cancellations of Sporting Events

Barack Obama popped off about the Coronavirus on Thursday.

Obama praised the cancellations of large gatherings and American sporting events.

First the NBA, then the NHL, MLB spring training cancellations and then March Madness.

The NCAA cancelled Division I men’s and women’s 2020 basketball tournaments and all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships due to Coronavirus concerns.

Obama praised the cancellations although there were no such measures taken when Swine Flu was sweeping the nation in 2009.

“If you’re wondering whether it’s an overreaction to cancel large gatherings and public events (and I love basketball), here’s a useful primer as to why these measures can slow the spread of the virus and save lives. We have to look out for each other,” Obama said linking to a Vox article.

Barack Obama is in no position to lecture Americans on pandemics.

In October 2009 Barack Obama declared the H1N1 a national emergency.

But this was not before millions of Americans were infected and 1,000 Americans were dead from the viral infection.

And despite the fact that the virus was coming into the US from Mexico President Obama NEVER shut down the border with Mexico.

Over 60 million Americans were infected with Swine Flu and over 12,000 Americans died.

Why wasn’t there mass hysteria and cancellations of large gathering due to Swine Flu when Obama was President?
