Comedian Dave Chappelle hosted “Saturday Night Night” this weekend, and alongside fellow comedian Chris Rock in a skit, skewered the reaction of liberals over President-elect Donald Trump’s Election Day victory.
The skit begins early in the evening on Election Night — six friends in an apartment watching election coverage, who were clearly supporting Clinton. At the beginning, their hope was high for Clinton. But Chappelle’s character issued a warning.
“Yep, it might be an historic night, but don’t forget it’s a big country,” he said.
As the night continued on, and as Clinton lost more states, the group began to show despair and lament over Clinton’s narrow path to the White House.
That’s where Rock and Chappelle came in, offering super cynical rebuttals to everything their white friends said. When Alaska was called for Trump, one of the white friends chimed in, “Oh my God, I think America is racist.”
That of course, came as no surprise to Chappelle, who replied, “I remember my great-grandfather told me something like that. He was like a slave or something, I don’t know.”
When another friend questioned why people weren’t turning out for Clinton like they did President Barack Obama, Rock joked that it may have something to do with “replacing a charismatic 40-year-old black guy with a 70-year-old white woman.”
