Netflix released the first preview of Dave Chappelle’s new stand-up special Equanimity, in which the iconic comedian explains why he dislikes “poor white” Trump voters.
“I’ve never had a problem with white people ever in my life, but, full disclosure, poor whites are my least favorites,” he began the segment. “We’ve got a lot of trouble out of them.”
Chappelle jokes that he had never seen more “poor whites” up close in his life until he went to the voting booth on Election Day 2016.
“I felt sorry for them,” he said. “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. 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–ker … you are poor. He’s fighting for me!”
Take a look at the clip above.
Equanimity, which is the third comedy special as part of Chappelle’s $60 million deal, will be available to stream beginning December 31.
