Comedian Chris Rock said that Democrats are responsible for the spread of COVID-19 because party leaders “let the pandemic come in” while they were busy pushing to impeach President Donald Trump.
Rock told The New York Times that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in particular was to blame.

Rock Said Democrats ‘Let The Pandemic Come In’
“It was totally up to Pelosi and the Democrats,” Rock said “Their thing was, ‘We’re going to get him impeached,’ which was never going to happen.”
“You let the pandemic come in,” he added. “Yes, we can blame Trump, but he’s really the 5-year-old.”
Democrat leaders did not show much interest in taking the coronavirus pandemic seriously during the pandemic’s early months. When concerns were being raised about COVID-19 in January, congressional Democrats were busy with staged photo-ops with the articles of impeachment.
In early February, as pandemic concerns were taking shape, Speaker Pelosi infamously tore up a copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address on live television.
This speech was about American heroes and American workers. She decided THAT was worth literally tearing apart.

Rock Compares Trump To Child Ruler In The Movie ‘The Last Emperor’
In that address, Trump promised that the White House “will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat.”
In his Times interview, Chris Rock, showing little respect for the President, compared him to a child ruler.
“Did you ever see that movie The Last Emperor, where like a 5-year-old is the emperor of China?” Rock said. “There’s a kid and he’s the king.”
“So I’m like, it’s all the Democrats’ fault,” Rock continued. “Because you knew that the emperor was 5 years old. 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.’”
On Feb. 2, while the media and Democrats in the House and Senate were still obsessed with their impeachment scheme, President @realDonaldTrump was restricting travel from China to slow the rate of new infections on our shores. https://t.co/TlQBjgE6QS

Rock also revealed that he didn’t believe Barack Obama’s presidency did much good for black Americans.
“Obama becoming the president, it’s progress for white people,” Rock said.
“It’s not progress for Black people,” he added.
