“People want to criticize the president, but imagine being a president of a country and half your country got sick,” he said around the 3:17 mark of the interview. “So it’s difficult for him. We all got to pull together as people, now. Now is not the time for blame and all these other things and anger. It’s here now. We got to just be together. We got to all stay safe.”

A newly released poll by POLITICO/Morning Consult shows that 61 percent of voters believe that Trump was ill prepared to deal with the outbreak. 

Additionally, 46 percent said he was “very unprepared” to handle it, 15 percent called him “somewhat unprepared,” 14 percent said Trump was “very prepared” and 18 percent consider him “somewhat prepared.”

After people caught wind of Morgan’s comments, he got lit up on social media.

“Tracy Morgan need to go somewhere and be quiet!!!” wrote someone on Instagram.

“Don’t make us throw your ass away with him @tracymorgan,” wrote another person.

“It smell like coon in here,” another comment read.

“Bye Hustle man,” someone else wrote.

Other celebrities like Trevor Noah, 50 Cent and Jeezy also have responded to Trump’s handling of the crisis, but unlike Morgan they had rather harsh words for him.

“Trump, he’s one-of-a-kind man, because it takes a different type of leader to make things about him,” said Jeezy on MSNBC April 3. “I feel like a lot of times you see his ego. Right now, you know, it’s about the people.

“To me, you talking about ‘Make America Great.’ We gon’ make America greater than it’s ever been with or without him,” he added. “You know he’s gotta understand that. We are the people. You are one person and we get it, but this not about you right now. We all in this together, all of us.”
