“It was totally up to Pelosi and the Democrats," Rock said when it came to the coronavirus. "Their thing was, ‘We’re going to get him impeached,’ which was never going to happen ... Yes, we can blame Trump, but he’s really the 5-year-old." https://t.co/DRlG5oHnDH— The Hill (@thehill) September 17, 2020
The 55 year old actor while promoting his the upcoming 4th season of Fargo which he is starring in said in an interview 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. There’s usually an adult who’s like, ‘OK, this is what we’re really going to do.’ 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.”
Republicans and right-wingers, including Donald Trump Jr., have been tweeting this left and right since the interview came out yesterday as if Chris Rock is the deciding authority on who was respnsible for the US being so badly effected by the Coronavirus and not realizng that he also called Trump a 5-year old.
