FLASHBACK: Jon Stewart, Others Mock 2009 ‘Swine Flu’ Outbreak, Disease Killed 12,000 Americans

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.16.20

The mainstream media and their allies in the Democratic Party have used the recent Coronavirus outbreak as a political tool to damage Donald Trump; accusing the Commander-in-Chief of promoting conspiracy theories to minimize the risk of infection.

The same people were less concerned with the Swine Flu Outbreak of 2009 under President Obama; with comedian Jon Stewart mocking the illness as ‘Snoutbreak ’09!’

The disease would ultimately claim the lives of 12,000 people.

“H1N1 flu virus? What do you catch it from droids?” joked Stewart. “The name change comes at the request of the pork industry. They worry that somehow pigs, an animal that eats its own feces, could now be thought of as unclean.”

“The problem of what to call the virus, like the virus itself, is now spreading,” he quipped.

Between April 2009 and late 2010, US officials believe the H1N1 or ‘Swine Flu’ virus infected 60 million Americans; requiring 270,000 hospitalizations across the country.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders weighed-in on the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak across the United States this week; telling reporters the “casualties” could be higher than what “the Armed Forces experienced” in the Second World War.

“In terms of potential deaths…the crisis we face is on a scale of a major war…we also have to face the truth and that is that the number of casualties may actually be even higher than what the armed forces experienced in World War II,” said Sanders during a press briefing on the virus.

President Trump addressed the nation from the Oval Office Wednesday night; saying it’s time for the American people to unify and combat the Coronavirus outbreak as “one family.”

“No nation is more prepared or more resilient than the United States. We have the best healthcare anywhere in the world. We are all in this together. We must put politics aside, stop the partisanship and unify together as one nation and one family,” said the President.

“History has proven time and time again, Americans always rise to the challenge and overcome adversity. Our future remains brighter than anyone can imagine,” he added.

The global Coronavirus outbreak continued to have a major impact on the American economy and sporting world Thursday; with A-list actor Tom Hanks testing positive for the disease and the NBA suspending its entire season until further notice.

“Actor Tom Hanks, his wife Rita Wilson, they have tested positive for Coronavirus. They are in our prayers tonight,” said Hannity.
