In the first preview trailer for his upcoming Netflix special, the comedian has some NSFW thoughts about “naive, poor white people” who support the president.
“I’ve never had a problem with white people ever in my life, but, full disclosure, poor whites are my least favorite,” he quips. “We’ve got a lot of trouble out of them. And I’ve never seen so many of them up close. Looked at them right in their coal-smeared faces. And to my surprise, you know what I didn’t see? I didn’t see one deplorable face in that group. Saw some angry faces and some determined faces but they felt like decent folk. I’m not even lying! No, they did … I felt sorry for them. I know the game now. I know that rich people call poor white people ‘trash.’ And the only reason I know that is I made so much money last year that the rich whites told me they say it at a cocktail party.”

Chappelle, who earned a reported $60 million for his Netflix specials, then continued: “… I stood in line with them like all Americans are required to do in a democracy, nobody skips the line to vote … and I listened to them. I listened to them say naive poor white people things: ‘Donald Trump is going to go to Washington and he’s gonna fight for us.’ I’m standing there thinking, ‘you dumb motherf—er … you are poor. He’s fighting for me!”
Chappelle’s third streaming special for Netflix, Equanimity, is out Dec. 31.
