Dave Chappelle Explains Why He Won’t Go After Trump

By  Amanda Prestigiacomo

All-star comic Dave Chappelle is one of the limited few in his field to avoid ripping President Donald Trump with every punchline. The comedy king criticized the anti-Trump angle taken uniformly by the comedy community, telling The New York Times that he doesn’t want to be part of the “chorus.”

Discussing some of his contemporaries still in the field, Chappelle brought up President Trump. “But the whole Trump things makes it harder for comedians,” he said.

“He’s so skewed, it’s hard to find an angle that sounds fresh,” he added. “If you talk about him, it’s almost like you’re part of the chorus and not a soloist.”

If you talk about [Trump], it’s almost like you’re part of the chorus and not a soloist.

In his new Netflix special, Chappelle rarely takes on Trump. This separates the comic from the “chorus” of Trump-ripping comedians currently dominating the culture.

Chappelle has recently taken heat for what the Left has deemed his “transphobic” jokes — another step off the liberal path.

Moreover, during the election, the comedy king shocked liberals by calling out Hillary Clinton’s dirty tactics and even defending Trump.

“What I heard on that tape was gross,” said Chappelle, referencing the infamous Access Hollywood tape. “But the way I got to hear it was even more gross. You know that came directly from Hillary.”

The comedian noted that he already knew Mrs. Clinton was “not right” before the tape was leaked and debunked the Left’s claim that Trump has admitted to “sexual assault” on the audio.

“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,” said Chappelle.
