Comedian Dave Chappelle appeared in Dayton, Ohio to join protesters speaking against Donald Trump’s Muslim travel ban.
The “woke” comedian spoke briefly at a rally in front of Congressman, and Trump supporter, Mike Turner’s office and the federal court building in Dayton.
Chappelle practices Islam and expressed his support of all those who stand to be affected by Trump’s executive order to keep people coming from certain Islamic territories from entering the U.S. He also said he’s tired of Trump ruining his Sundays.
“We are all here because what you [Trump] are doing does not seem right,” Chappelle can be heard saying in video from the event. “As a matter of fact, it sucks. I support refugees, I support immigrants, and I love my friends and neighbors. Thank you.”

Chappelle’s sentiments are a bit of a change from the “give Trump a shot” suggestion he made back in November. Chappelle was charged with hosting the first Saturday Night Live episode after Trump won the election.
“I’m wishing Donald Trump luck,” said Chappelle. “And I’m going to give him a chance. And we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he give us one too.”
Luck has been on Trump’s side so far, he’s succeeded in passing laws that have pissed off half the country.
