Dave Chappelle Has Some Bad News for the 'Dumb White People' Who Voted Trump

Comedian Dave Chappelle said he “feels sorry” for “poor whites” who got scammed by President Donald Trump.

“The poor whites are my least favorites,” the comedian says in a preview of his upcoming Netflix special, “Equanimity.”

He said “dumb white people” who backed Trump were swindled, because the president had no intention of helping them but instead is further enriching wealthy Americans — like Chappelle himself.

“I’m standing there thinking in my mind, you dumb motherf*cker,” Chappelle says. “You are poor — he’s fighting for me!”

Chappelle, who lives in rural Ohio town Yellow Springs, said he sees Trump supporters all the time, and he said they’re not as hateful as they’re made out to be.

“To my surprise, you know what I didn’t see? I didn’t see one deplorable face in that group,” Chappelle says. “I saw some angry faces, and some determined faces — but they felt like decent folk.”

“In fact, I’m not even lying, not to sound f*cked up, but I felt sorry for them,” Chappelle adds. “I know the game now. I know that rich white people call poor white people ‘trash,’ and the only reason I know that, is because I made so much money last year, the rich whites told me they say it at a cocktail party — and I’m not with that sh*t.”
