Dave Chappelle: ‘Trump Is The Most Gangsta Candidate Ever,’ Says Hillary’s ‘Not Right’
Reclusive comedian Dave Chappelle reportedly criticized Hillary Clinton and defended Donald Trump during a surprise set in New York City on Friday night.
According to the Observer, Chappelle, who played a show at The Cutting Room in NYC, compared voting for Clinton to the hypothetical of being farted on in the face by actress Halle Berry during sex. “I’m still going to go for it,” he said. “But I wish she hadn’t done that thing.”
Chappelle also said the leaked video of Trump talking explicitly with Billy Bush was Clinton’s doing.
“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.”
The comedian, who’s slated to host Saturday Night Live on November 12, even reportedly defended Trump against sexual assault accusations stemming from the video. (RELATED: Dave Chappelle To Host Saturday Night Live)
“Sexual assault? It wasn’t,” Chappelle said. “[Trump] 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.”
Chappelle later commented on Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz’s questioning during the debate:
Something about this was backward. A gay white man and a white woman asking a multi-billionaire how he knows the system is rigged and insisting it’s not. Does that sound right to you? It didn’t seem right to me. And here’s how you know Trump is the most gangsta candidate ever. They asked him how he knows the system is rigged and he said, ‘Because I take advantage of it.’ He may as well have flashed his membership card for the Illuminati right then.
Chappelle noted that he “didn’t feel good” about voting for Clinton, adding, “She’s going to be on a coin someday. And her behavior has not been coin-worthy.”
“She’s not right and we all know she’s not right.”
