While promoting his role in the upcoming 4th season of Fargo, Chris Rock veered SLIGHTLY OFF TOPIC in an interview with The New York Times, saying that it was THE DEMOCRATS and NANCY PELOSI that allowed the spread of the coronavirus because of their obsession with impeachment. And Trump is totally off the hook because… *checks notes*…. he’s basically a child who doesn’t know what he’s doing:
“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.”

Where do we start?
Well…. Here’s one commenter who gets it:
Wow that’s a horrible take. Trump is not a 5 y/o, he’s an adult surrounded by other adults and as the Woodward tapes show had a grasp of how bad it had the capacity to be. He made the conscious effort to downplay it, he knew exactly what he was doing and every action he has taken in the last 6 months has just made it worse.
This is the total product of dereliction of duty from the USG at all levels. Trump, of course. His ilk, absolutely. The fact that these fools still recessed while this is all happening. Mitch McConnell for sitting on helpful legislation that would help more people.
The fact that we’ve only been given $1200 USD to survive and we have no national plan, nor a grasp on how to deal moving forward… the fact that the onus of a plan has fallen to frontline workers and teachers, whom are already overtaxed, overworked and under appreciated.
And then there’s this:
Delusional. First off, the House impeachment trial was in December. Secondly, they impeached him because he’s corrupt and they warned about just this sort of thing happening if he was allowed to retain power. Thirdly, the House can’t do shit because of the Senate, Judiciary, and Executive, which is why impeachment failed, we don’t have Trump’s tax returns, don’t have pandemic aid, and don’t have anything remotely helpful for the public. They have one house in one branch of government, so what the hell are they supposed to do? How exactly are they supposed to overrule this freakshow if they can’t impeach him? Make it make sense.
I’m not even going to touch the logic of his spawn saying that Trump can’t be trusted with responsibility so vote Trump, but that’s about the best you can expect from that gene pool.
What do you think? Out-of-touch celeb gives another vote to Kanye? Or spot-on deduction, GO TRUMP!
