Morgan told the “Today” show that “now is not the time for blame” as the coronavirus pandemic is “difficult” for the president. 

“People want to criticize the president, but imagine being president of a country and half your country got sick,” he said.


He encouraged the viewers to “pull together as people now” amid the crisis.

“Now is not the time for blame and all these other things and anger,” he continued. “It’s here now. We gotta just be together.”

“So let’s just stay safe and do the protocol that we have to do to protect our kids and our pets,” he said.

Critics have condemned the president and his administration for moving too slowly to fight the pandemic, saying he should have acted before the end of January and issued consistent messaging about the dangers of the virus. 

The comedian also commended hospital workers for their work during the pandemic. Morgan had praised the medical professionals that assisted him after his nearly fatal car accident in 2014.

Morgan was promoting the new third season of his TBS show "The Last O.G.," which aired Tuesday.
