“I was the first guy on TV to say ‘Give Trump a chance.’ I f***ed up. Sorry,” Chappelle said at the Robin Hood Foundation benefit in New York City Monday, according to Geist. (RELATED: Dave Chappelle: ‘Black Lives Matter Is A Terrible Slogan’)


“Everyday when you wake up you never know what he’s going to do next, Donald Trump,” Chappelle explained in another part of the monologue shared from the event. “He’s exciting like you thought a black president would have been. He’s action packed the way you never thought a presidency would be. He’s done some crazy shit.”

Chappelle was referring to his “Saturday Night Live” monologue in November.

“I’m wishing Donald Trump luck,” the comedian said during the monologue. “And I’m going to give him a chance. And we the historically disenfranchised demand that he gives us one too.”
