In a surprising accusation from a major Hollywood figure, comedian Chris Rock is holding Democrats responsible for the spread of the coronavirus, saying party leaders “let the pandemic come in” while they were busy pushing the ultimately unsuccessful impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Chris Rock made the accusation in a wide-ranging interview with The New York Times in which he also discussed President Trump and the use of blackface in entertainment.

The comedian told the Times that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Congressional Democrats allowed the virus to spread because they were focused on impeachment proceedings.

“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,” Rock said.

Democrat leaders showed little to no public interest in the coronavirus pandemic during its early months. In January, when the gravity of the virus was becoming apparent, Congressional Democrats staged a photo-op in which they solemnly walked the articles of impeachment through the Capitol rotunda.

Later that month, Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) infamously tore up a copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address on live television, even though the address directly referenced the pandemic and promised that the White House “will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat.”

Rock also said that the Obama presidency didn’t represent a positive for black Americans.

“Obama becoming the president, it’s progress for white people. It’s not progress for Black people.”
