Dave Chappelle Addresses Trump Voters In His Netflix Special

Dave Chappelle Addresses Trump Voters In His Netflix Special”

And I stood with them in line, like all of us Americans are required to do in a democracy - nobody skips the line to vote - and I listened to them. No matter which side you were on, or what table you were hiding under, the relentless drumbeat of bad, weird, scary, confusing and infuriating headlines were enough to make you want to erase it all and start over.

Earlier this year, Chappelle expressed regret over remarks he made while hosting the first "Saturday Night Live" after the 2016 White House race, in which he asked the country to give Trump a chance.

In a surprise announcement, Dave Chappelle reveals he will have not one, but two stand-up comedy specials, Equanimity and The Bird Revelation, dropping on Netflix to ring in the New Year. "You are poor - he's fighting for me!" Full disclosure: Poor whites are my least favorites, ' Chappelle joked.

Check out the rest of the trailer below.

Chappelle's net worth is estimated to be over $40 million and he was reportedly paid $60 million by Netflix for his three specials.

'I've never seen so many of them up close.

Imitating a Trump supporter, Chappelle exclaimed, "Man, Donald Trump's gonna go to Washington and he's gonna fight for us".

In addition to the previously announced special "Equanimity", the iconic comedian will also release the special "The Bird Revelation".

Netflix released a joint trailer for the specials on Friday. More hilariously, he urges them to come to the realization that he's actually not "their" president, but rather that of the rich.

After turning down a $50 million Comedy Central deal a decade ago, Chappelle has returned to the public eye in recent years.
