According to a report from Breitbart, Tracy Morgan defended President Trump on Tuesday as he called for national unity amidst the spreading pandemic.

In an interview with Today, Morgan said, “The struggle is real.”

“People want to criticize the president, but imagine being a president of a country and have your country get sick. So it’s difficult for him. We’ve all got to pull together as people, now.”

“Now is not the time for blame and all these other things, and anger,” he added. “It’s here now. We just got to be together. We’ve got to all stay safe. Nobody wants to transmit it, nobody wants to attract it, nobody wants to get it. So let’s just stay safe and do the protocol that we have to do.”

The interview was conducted virtually, and Morgan continued, “Me and my wife have been quarantined in here for like three weeks.”

The comedian commended those who work in the healthcare profession saying, “These are the good-headed people, they know what they’re doing,” said Morgan. “They’re fighting the frontlines, I love them.”

“I know these people, I know they work hard to take care of you,” he added. “I’m very proud of them, they’re my heroes — while we’re running out of the burning building, the firemen are running in.”

“These police officers that come out of their homes and patrol the streets, they don’t know if they’re ever going back home,” said Morgan. “We gotta give them respect.”
