Dave Chappelle has been making the media rounds this week in support of his residency at Radio City Music Hall. The beloved and edgy comedian sat down with The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and shared some hilarious thoughts about our troubled Commander-In-Chief, President Donald Trump.
Chappelle’s segment opened with the star talking about his star-studded show, mentioning to Colbert that Solange is part of the show. Chappelle added that the shows in New York are a celebration of his 30 years in comedy. After explaining to Colbert that he began working out due to stress and delivering the brilliant “the fear of poverty is a treadmill” line, the convo shifted to Chappelle’s curious support of President Trump and his plea to give the former business mogul a chance in the post.
“In the last six months, I think we’re all getting an education about the presidency,” Chappelle said. “I don’t think I’ve ever heard people discuss ethics this much, and I didn’t even realize how ethics are supposed to work at this level of the government.”
Chappelle then added, “He’s a polarizing dude. He’s like a bad DJ at a good party.”
Essentially, Chappelle believes that Trump’s baffling time in the White House will better prepare the voting public on how they select the next leader of the country. Interesting theory.
