Chris Rock Comes After Democrats, Partially Blaming Them For COVID Response

Chris Rock seems to be blaming the Democrats for the pandemic, saying that they’ve been too focused on trying to impeach Trump.

The comedian gave an interview with the New York Times where he touched on the current state of the world, explaining it was up to Democrats like Nancy Pelosi to keep Trump in check.

Chris even compared the situation to the film The Last Emperor.

“So I’m like, it’s all the Democrats’ fault. Because you knew that the emperor was 5 years old,” he said. “And when the emperor’s 5 years old, they only lead in theory. There’s usually an adult who’s like, ‘OK, this is what we’re really going to do.’”

He continued, “And it was totally up to Pelosi and the Democrats. Their thing was, ‘We’re going to get him impeached,’ which was never going to happen. You let the pandemic come in. Yes, we can blame Trump, but he’s really the 5-year-old.”

“Put it this way: Republicans tell outright lies. Democrats leave out key pieces of the truth that would lead to a more nuanced argument,” he said. “In a sense, it’s all fake news.”
