More people have died of coronavirus than H1N1 in the US, so how will Trump supporters deflect now?

Anti Trump zealots will push the 2009 Swine Flu response as fast & effective when 2009 H1N1 swine flu was just slightly different from the 1918 original H1N1 Spanish flu. It was weaker than the original 1918. Not much alarming concern came into light because it wasn't entirely new. Thousands of deaths are anticipated from H#N# variants annually since 1918. There were 4 pandemic flus before 2009 & vaccines for H#N# variants were and are being develop year after year.
COVID-19 is entirely new, 85% of the infected people who either didn't become ill or just got mildly ill similar to a common cold (There are 4 harmless corona viruses that causes the common cold) enabled COVID-19 to easily and quickly spreads as those infected think they only have a cold. No one knew a thing about the new COVID-19 virus, until at risk people started dying in great numbers prompting the expediency to study & record data. 14% seriously to critically ill are recovering from COVID-19. Without drugs or vaccine to combat it. It might be on the road of being as fatal as the 1918 Influenza or Spanish Flu (500 million infection 50 million death toll out of 1.8 Billion world population) which is very unlikely. COVID-19 can attempt to kill 50 million people only because there are 8 billion people in the world today, 4 1/2 times more than a 100 years ago. 1918 Influenza didn't care whether you're young, old, sick, or healthy while COVID-19 mostly victimizes the old & the sickly.
The Administration & CDC were monitoring the outbreak in Wuhan at the time POTUS was being impeached. The Admin sent & requested for US CDC Scientists to help, but they were blocked as proud Chinese Government wanted to handle the situation themselves & didn't want to lose face receiving help from an adversary. CDC had no choice but to copy how China & the rest of Asia handles this new COVID-19 Virus that is relatively unknown. China did a good job containing SARS from infecting the world, but was ill prepared to handle containment of a highly infectious respiratory disease 3-5 times more contagious than the seasonal flu, but 2/3 less lethal now known as COVID-19. COVID-19 may be impossible to contain in a world connected by travel & transport where every day life requires social interactions in close proximity where COVID-19 air droplets can easily spread & infect in which the whole world was not prepared for.
Unlike Ebola, 99% lethal in mortality, is transmitted by eating rare to medium well Gorilla or any African primate/monkey bush meat or primate/monkey saliva, blood, urine from a bite attack or spat, sprinkled or sprayed onto an open wound, eye, mouth, anus or birth canal similar with HIV transmission. It took 3 1/2 decades of study & data to put a 1%-5% dent recovery from a 100% mortality rate without a vaccine, yet to be developed & procured knowledge in preparation to prevention & containment long before Obama came into picture. In terms of contagiousness COVID-19 is far more contagious than Ebola as transmission is through air droplets inhaled or touched from a surface having contaminated hand touching orifices on the face.
(D)wTDS thinks the CDC was perfect under Obama to elevate Obama & vilify his successor, when it's the same CDC & personnel running it for 3-4 decades. There are certain situation that no amount of preparation can prepare for. Anthony Fauci wasn't prepared for what was coming, though he is an expert & has served since the early 80s, he & most of the scientist on disease control just didn't know what they were dealing with. CDC had no choice but to copy how China & the rest of Asia handles this new COVID-19 Virus that is relatively unknown along with the data China release upon who are the most vulnerable, what pre-existing condition & blood type will likely gets seriously ill & dies... Without known vivid details about how seriously contagious the disease is, he & many other (lib) experts concluded that the Wuhan Flu is less of a threat than the seasonal flu. So, Anthony Fauci in Jan. 21st assured the public on NEWSMAX that the Wuhan Virus is not a threat to America. In Feb. 17th, he again said on air that the danger from the Wuhan Virus was miniscule. As the 15 days guidelines was near its end in late March, Fauci contemplated in quarantine up to a year. In early April it turns out that the computer projection model is over estimated.
The government under Trump began working on a vaccine BEFORE the first case in the US. Obama 6 days AFTER.
Trump had a test ready to go three days after the first case. Obama 13 days.
Trump declared coronavirus a public health emergency 9 days later. Obama 15 days.
Trump declared a national emergency 53 days later. Obama 204 days later
Trump was warning everyone about the coronavirus 15 days after the first case. No warning from Obama at that point.
The country hit 1m cases of H1N1 71 days after the first case. On the 78th day there were 367,000 cases of corona in the US .
The first vaccines started getting tested 56 days later under Trump. It was 98 days for Obama.
Obama also used up all of the N95 masks & ventilators from the previous administration and didn't replace them.
Obama would have allowed every major city in each state to become an epicenter & spreader through every entertainment arena & every mode of transportation because travel bans are 'racist'.
Once in a hundred years there's a pandemic that mankind can't prevent or control anytime. Single Cell Bacterial Viruses mutate all the time that allowed evolution to occur for billions of years & led to multi-cell organisms. Viral outbreak seems to pop up where large flocks, herds, & communities are densely packed. Every living thing (Animal, Plant, Fungi) on the planet has some sort of disease for billions of years. As mankind converts 85% of the planet's forest cover for human use: cultivation, roads, & development: entertainment, settlement, warehouse, airports... diseases have nowhere to go but where humans are to survive.

The virus would have killed everyone if Hillary

Unfortunately I feel like they'll find a way. It won't be until it's them getting sick and dying that they'll see it as a real thing.

H1n1 is something our immune systems have encountered before unlike this virus if it exists

Deflect what? There is nothing to deflect. Trump is doing a great job.
In fact, even Biden admitted that stopping flights from China was a good idea, after he first called it xenophobic and fear-mongering.

Hillary, Obama, Benghazi… take your pick.
Or maybe Monica Lewinski
Conservative America is eternally re-hashing the grievances of the past (nevermind it was always all based on lies), eternally looking for vindication.
Meanwhile, they haven't noticed the XXIst century is here. And they are keeping America backwards.
