Dave Chappelle Makes a Surprising Statement About Trump’s First 100 Days

Dave Chappelle isn't too proud to admit when he's wrong.

The comedian recently took the time during one of his comedy sets to apologize for once urging Americans to "give Trump a chance."

This all dates back to Chappelle's celebrated hosting gig on Saturday Night Live last November when he seemingly offered support for then president-elect Donald Trump.
