Tracy Morgan Talked To “Today’s” Hoda Kotb About Coronavirus Role-Playing, His Pet Gorilla, And Donald Trump

Tracy Morgan is a clown. And I mean that in the best possible way. So it’s not surprising that Hoda Kotb came away from interviewing him on Today with whip cream and seltzer in her hair. Throughout the interview, Tracy rattled off a number of wild and obviously untrue statements such as him impregnating his wife three times in three weeks, he and his wife sexually role playing as desperate “young maiden” and “scientist who discovered the cure,” him wanting to get his new pet gorilla tested for COVID-19, and Donald Trump not being to blame for the situation at hand. Oh, that Tracy!

As far as celebrity content for #theseuncertaintimes goes, I’ll take Tracy’s batshit interview over the countless pap strolls, sing alongs, and Instagram live deep thoughts being offered by these other bored richies any day. According to Page Six:

Tracy Morgan went off the rails during an interview with “Today” show co-anchor Hoda Kotb, joking about impregnating his wife, Megan Wollover, and participating in coronavirus-inspired role playing.

“Me and my wife have been quarantined in here for like three weeks, so she’s pregnant three times,” Morgan, 51, said during a live video call from his house. “Every week she got pregnant, and we’re also role playing a lot now. We’re role playing.

“She’s playing a young maiden whose grandfather was infected with coronavirus,” he explained. “And I’m the scientist who discovered the cure, and she’ll do anything to save her grandfather’s life, and I mean anything.”

At one point in the interview, Hoda tried to bait Tracy into telling us about his opulent home complete with indoor bowling alley and aquarium, but Tracy deftly redirected the conversation saying, “that’s not important,” before going on a tangent about getting his pets tested for COVID-19 after watching a news report on that Bronx tiger.

“I’m going to get all my pets tested. I’m going to get my sharks tested. I’m going to get my eel tested,” he said. “I just bought a 600-pound Silverback gorilla—I’m going to take him down to New York Presbyterian and get him tested.”

“Are you for real, or are you just pretending,” a confused Kotb asked.

“I’m for real,” he clarified. “This is real stuff.”

See, Tracy may be a “fool”, but he’s not a fool. He’s not trying to wake up one morning to find his indoor bowling alley overrun and being used as an emergency COVID-19 ward for all the animals in the Central Park Zoo! Here’s Tracy’s full interview.
