Dave Chappelle Wishes Donald Trump Luck in Saturday Night Live Monologue: 'I'm Going to Give Him a Chance'

Dave Chappelle wasted no time weighing in on Donald Trump, using his Saturday Night Live monologue to harp on the outcome of the Nov. 8 presidential election.

The comedian, who has publicly voiced his disdain for both the president-elect and Hillary Clinton, used his Studio 8H introduction to discuss America’s decision to elect its first “Internet troll.”

“I didn’t know that Donald Trump was going to win the election. I did suspect it,” he said. “I haven’t seen white people this mad since the O.J. [Simpson] verdict… I’m staying out of it. I’m just going to take a knee like [Colin] Kaepernick and let the whites figure this out amongst themselves.”

Moving forward, Chappelle said that a Trump presidency wasn’t the most important thing our country is dealing with, citing the record number of mass shootings and the need for a Black Lives Matter movement.

“Why do we have to say that Black Lives Matter?” he asked. “Now I admit, that is not the best slogan, but McDonald’s already took ‘You deserve a break today,’ and I guess it’s kind of catchy because everyone else is biting it. Even the police bite it. ‘Blues Lives Matter.’ What, were you born a police [officer]? That is not a blue life, that is a blue suit. If you don’t like it, take that suit off and find another job, because I’m going to tell you right now, if I could quit being black today, I’d be out of the game.”

Chappelle eventually circled back to the prez-elect. “I’m wishing Donald Trump luck,” he admitted. “I’m going to give him a chance, and we the historically disenfranchised demand that he give us one, too.”
