(PoliticalLookout.com)- In a surprising attack against the far-left Democrats, comedian Chris Rock lashed out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other high-profile Democratic politicians for obsessing over the failed impeachment efforts while ignoring the COVID-19 outbreak in China. During an interview with The New York Times this week, Chris Rock said the Democrats “let the pandemic come in” by trying to get the president removed from office.
“Part of the reason we’re in the predicament we’re in is, the president’s a landlord,” Rock said. “Now one has less compassion for humans than a landlord,” he added. That’s something a lot of readers here will likely disagree with – as well a lot of Americans – but it’s important to mention as Rock is no fan of the president.
He doesn’t, however, appear to be completely won over by the Democrats. Rock compared President Donald Trump to a “five year old” and suggested the Democrats should have known better.
“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,” he said.
“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 added.
He’s not the only person who accused the Democrats of ignoring important issues while plowing ahead with their impeachment efforts. Democrats attempted to remove the president from office despite knowing the Congressional math didn’t add up and there was insufficient support to make it happen.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina hit out at the Democrats for precisely the same thing.
“When it comes to the month of February, most Democrats and the media were more worried about impeaching President @realDonaldTrump than coronavirus,” he said.

“We voted to acquit President Trump on February 6. During that time, Democrats were making witness requests which – if they had been granted – would have extended the trial through most of February.”
Can you imagine if that had happened?
It wasn’t long after this that Nancy Pelosi was out on the streets on China Town in San Francisco telling people from all over the country to come on down and have a good time, too.
The Democrats, as the evidence shows, didn’t take COVID-19 seriously…and now want to pretend they did!
