Chappelle, who also hosted the show’s post-election program in 2016, called Trump a “racist, hilarious bastard” in the opening monologue last night (November 7).
After the transition that a friend in London told him that the world would be a “safer place when America had a new president,” Chappelle warned: “Do you remember life before COVID like that? Any? It̵7;s a mass shooting every week… Thank goodness for COVID. Something had to lock up these white murderers, keep them in the house.
The host also teased Trump for his controversial comments about using bleach to fight coronavirus. “What about bleach? Some bleaches are directly in our body. Boy, the Secret Service will have to protect the White House now. ‘He. Chairman, don’t touch the stove, it’s hot. Turn that scissors around, Mr President, if you’re going to run around the house. “

Last week (October 30), Foos head Dave Grohl and mother Ginny discussed the importance of education in a new interview with the new First Lady, Jill Biden.
