Tracy Morgan has made a career off speaking his mind. Yet during an interview with Today's Hoda Kotb, Morgan gave the anchor a response she wasn't prepared to digest.
With the coronavirus forcing people to stay in their homes, Kotb asked the comedian what he and his family are doing with their free time.
"We’re role-playing," Morgan said of himself and his wife on Tuesday. "She’s playing a young maiden whose grandfather was infected with coronavirus, and I’m the scientist who discovered the cure. And she'll do anything to save her grandfather's life—and I mean anything."
Kotb's professionalism shined as she held it together and tried to switch subjects to Tracy's massive home. The comedian wasn't letting her off the hook that easy. When asked about his house, he told her that his residence wasn't as important as the pets that live there.
"This tiger in The Bronx Zoo got me scared," he continued. "So, I'm going to get all my pets tested. I'm getting my sharks tested. I'm getting my moray eel tested. I just bought a 600-pound silverback gorilla. I'm taking him down to New York Presbyterian and get him tested."
Kotb and Today weren't the only ones subjected to Morgan's antics. During an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Morgan explained to Meyers that he's "old school" when it comes to sex.
"We've been quarantined for four weeks," Morgan said at the interview's two-minute mark after insisting his wife gets pregnant once a week. "I'm old school. I don't pull out."
Along with his sex life, Morgan did touch on the severity of the coronavirus while talking to Howard Stern.
"Somebody's got to stay positive. I know this too shall past," Morgan said. "To the nurses, the doctors, and the first responders, and everybody involved, you're my hero. I love you. Keep working hard. We need you."
This spirit of togetherness was also present in Morgan's appearance on Today. While discussing President Trump's response to the crisis, Morgan stated that the situation has to be "difficult for him."
"Right now, we're struggling. People want to criticize the President, but imagine being the president of a country and half your country got sick. So, it's difficult for him," Morgan said. "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 gotta just be together. We gotta 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. Protect our kids, and our pets."
