As he did four years earlier, Dave Chappelle is back Live Saturday night for the first episode after the series’ presidential election, with the comedian once again delivering a powerful and well-timed monologue.
“This morning after the results, I got a text from a friend of mine in London, she said the world feels like a safer place when America has a new president. And I said, ‘That’s great, but America isn’t,’ said Chappelle.
“Do you remember what life was like before Covid? I do. There’s a mass shooting every week, remember? Thank God for Covid. Something had to lock up these white murderers, keep them in the house.
Chappelle also talked about how, due to Covid-19, how his recent comedy shows played out in a cornfield near his home in rural Ohio, and that caused shoppers. how annoying his neighbor is.
“The local farmers, my neighbors, started complaining that my performances were too noisy, in a corn field… I had to have a townwide meeting about how loud I was in a cornfield, what a shame. And I am angry that these country farmers can decide the fate of a guy like me. People who don’t deserve to do that. They haven’t seen enough, they don’t know anything, ”said Chappelle.
“They might be watching me right now, they might be like, ‘Darling, come fast, come fast, the guy from the grocery store on TV.’ No, stupid guy. TV is at the grocery store ”.
The comedian added, “For some reason poor white people don’t like to wear masks, what’s the problem? You wear a mask at the Klan rally, wear it at Walmart. Put on your Klan hood at Walmart so we can all feel safe ”.
In the middle of a 16-minute monologue, Chappelle mentioned the election and that the president was about to leave. “Now Trump is gone,” he said as the crowd clapped their hands. “Calling coronavirus ‘kung flu.’ I said ‘Racist, hilarious bitch.’ I have to say that, not you. You said it was wrong. “
Chappelle then mocked Trump’s coronavirus cure press conference, as well as the president signed to Covid-19. “And after all that, you know what Trump did after all of that, went out and infected with coronavirus, isn’t that something? You know, when he got coronavirus, they said everything about it on the news, but you know what they didn’t say? That was hilarious, ”said Chappelle.
“Trump has a coronavirus just like Freddie Mercury has AIDS. Nobody likes, ‘Wow, how did he get it?’ This guy was running around like Outbreak monkey.”
Chappelle ended her monologue with an emotional plea aimed at reconciling a divided nation.
“I will implore all those who are celebrating today to remember that it is good to be a humble winner. Remember when I was here four years ago, remember how bad it was? Remember, half of the country still feels the same right now. Please remember that, ”he said.
“Remember, for the first time in American history, the life expectancy of whites has fallen ’caused by heroin, from suicide. All the white people out there feeling that anguish, the pain, they go crazy thinking nobody cares – maybe they don’t – let me tell you something: I know that feeling how. Promise you, I know what that feels like. If you were a policeman, and every time you put on your uniform, you felt like the target was behind you, you would be horrified by the courage of everyone as you risk your life to save them. Believe me, I know what that feels like. Everyone knows what that feels like. But here’s the difference between me and you: You guys hate each other for that, and I don’t hate anyone. I just hate that feeling. That’s what I fight, and what I suggest you fight. You have to find a way to live your life. You must find ways to forgive each other. You must find a way to find joy in your existence, in spite of that feeling. “
