Comedian Chris Rock is blaming the Democrats for the coronavirus crisis, saying they were so focused on impeachment, they didn’t keep the President in check.
Using “The Last Emperor” plot as an example, Rock explained what he meant.
“So I’m like, it’s all the Democrats’ fault,” he said to The New York Times. “Did you ever see that movie “The Last Emperor,” where like a 5-year-old is the emperor of China? There’s a kid and he’s the king. So I’m like, it’s all the Democrats’ fault. Because you knew that the emperor was 5 years old. And when the emperor’s 5 years old, they only lead in theory.”
Rock goes on to say Nancy Pelosi should have done something about it.
“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,” he continued.
“Republicans tell outright lies. Democrats leave out key pieces of the truth that would lead to a more nuanced argument. In a sense, it’s all fake news,” Rock said.
