Dave Chappelle is hosting "Saturday Night Live" on November 12, which got a lot of longtime fans very excited.
Some of those fans may be surprised to find out that Chappelle defended Donald Trump, including the infamous recording of him saying he could "grab women by the pussy" and blasted Hillary Clinton and LGBT activists in a standup routine at The Cutting Room in New York City Friday night, Observer reports.
What I heard on that tape was gross. But the way I got to hear it was even more gross. You know that came directly from Hillary.
On the "hot mic" scandal
Chappelle implied Trump's now-infamous tape was leaked by Clinton. There's no evidence to support that claim. The recording existence was originally reported by The Washington Post.
On Trump's self-confidence
Chappelle also praised Trump's response to the tape scandal, saying, "That would have devastated anybody else."
He also called Trump "the most gangsta candidate ever" because rather than admitting that "the system is rigged," he owned up to it.
"He may as well have flashed his membership card for the Illuminati right then," Chappelle said.
On Hillary Clinton and farting
Chappelle compared voting for Clinton to having Halle Berry fart in his face while having sex, Observer reports.
"I'm still going to go for it," he said. "But I wish she hadn't done that thing."
If you're putting sexism and homophobia and transphobia in front of racism, you should be ashamed of yourself.
On racism and LGBT activists
Chappelle argued "they should not be having that conversation in front of black people." Furthermore, he commented on the North Carolina transgender bathroom controversy, saying he would rather not have "a woman with a dick" next to him.
