Who could address a controversial figure like Donald Trump while at least building up dispirited progressives?
Call upon legendary comedian Dave Chappelle to do guest hosting.
Chappelle hits it off. He first address the unrest in Portland, Oregon and compare it to the fatal police encounters of Black men in Charlotte, Milwaukee, Baltimore and Ferguson. He says it is sort of a double standard for Whites when it comes to protesting injustices.
Dave Chappelle opening monologue went viral. I mean it's touched nerves and it gave an honest truth about the election in the Black and White prospective.
"I didn't know that Donald Trump was going to win the election. I did suspect it. Seemed like Hillary [Clinton] was doing well in the polls and yet .... I know the whites. You guys aren't as full as you used to be. America has done it. We've actually elected an internet troll as our president."
As he addressed the Portland protests, he remarked the following: " I watched the white riot in Portland on television the other night. The news said they did $1 million worth of damage. Every black person was watching it like, 'Amateurs'," said Chappelle.
In regards to 1/3 of Clinton supporters saying they will not respect President Trump, he said:
"I'm staying out it. I'm just going to take a knee like [Colin] Kaepernick and let the whites figure this out amongst themselves".
Chapelle even brought out his inspiration, Chris Rock to perform in a skit involving angry Clinton supporters.
