Dave Chapelle Has a Message for Poor White People

Though Dave Chappelle's new Netflix standup special was filmed long before Congress voted on a sweeping tax bill that includes a 40% tax cut for corporations, there's a bit from the comedy show that sounds relevant. In a new expletive-laden NSFW clip from his third streaming special in a year, Equanimity, out Dec. 31, Chappelle talks about the "poor whites" who elected President Trump. "I stood with them in line ... and I listened to them say naive, poor white people things" about how Trump will help them once elected. Chappelle continues: "I'm standing there, thinking in my mind, 'You dumb ---. You are poor. He's fighting for me.' "

"Dave Chapelle is the best.

"I'm standing there, thinking in my mind, 'You dumb (expletives). You are poor. He's fighting for me.' "

LOL!

Please please please enlighten me on HOW.

I mean no offense but the people that have this view I find pricelessly naive. So far pretty much EVERYTHING he has done is for the benefit of the rich.

This is EXACTLY what made me laugh so hard at poor black people regarding Obama. In Tampa, there were news interviews all over the place with people from low income neighborhoods and one of them said, "I can't wait for Obama to get in office, he's going to pay my mortgage for me" and that wasn't even the dumbest thing that someone said, it's just the one I remember most because she spoke just like that "Ain't nobody got time for that" woman. Maybe those type of interviews were only in Tampa but this type of mentality is rampant everywhere, because people still hold no responsibility over their own actions and are waiting for someone to come in and just take care of all of their problems.

False equivalency - the only thing repubs have left.

Obama wasnt a plutocrat who talked about buying american while making his products in china.

You got conned like a chump.

Yeah that's why he's trying to collapse their health care system, pollute their air, and defund their government, and why he filled his white house with goldman sachs bankers and other billionaires. Because he's fighting so hard for poor people.
