Dave Chappelle has always been one of my favorite comedians, and Chappelle’s Show was arguably one of the funniest shows ever to grace the small screen. Like most o Hollywood, Chappelle leans to the left, but last week he was telling audiences what they needed to hear.
Chappelle was particularly agitated about what he believes was Clinton’s role in leaking a surreptitiously recorded conversation between Republican nominee Donald J. Trump and TV personality Billy Bush. “What I heard on that tape was gross,” Chappelle said. “But the way I got to hear it was even more gross. You know that came directly from Hillary.”
He stated this had put him off a candidate he had already known was “not right.” He likened voting for her to a hypothetical situation of actress Halle Berry breaking wind in his face during sexual relations. “I’m still going to go for it,” he said. “But I wish she hadn’t done that thing.”
Chappelle further shocked the New York crowd by defending Trump. He took issue with the media stating as fact that Trump had admitted committing sexual assault in the recorded conversation. “Sexual assault? It wasn’t. He said, ‘And when you’re a star, they let you do it.’ That phrase implies consent. I just don’t like the way the media twisted that whole thing. Nobody questioned it.” (H/T – Kevin)
Now Chappelle still claimed he held his nose and voted for Crooked Hillary, but the fact he tried to persuade people on how terrible she is makes him a stand-up guy.
