Dave Chappelle has the gift of observational humor that few in the history of comedy have been able to match. It’s especially true when it comes to current events and how they affect minority communities.
Case in point, Chappelle’s new Netflix specials, Equanimity and The Bird Revelation, are hilarious and they’re making a lot of Donald Trump supporters uneasy.
In Equanimity, the Washington D.C.-based comedian roasted #MAGA supporters in perhaps one of his most standout bits.
"I've never had a problem with white people ever in my life, but, full disclosure, poor whites are my least favorites. We've got a lot of trouble out of them. And I've never seen so many of them up close," Chappelle says in starting out the joke. "I stood with them in line ... and I listened to them say naive, poor white people things."
He continues: "I'm standing there, thinking in my mind, 'You dumb Motherf****rs. You are poor. He's fighting for me.'"

Suffice to say this got the Trumpettes mad and their response is almost as funny.
