Dave Chappelle Takes On Hillary Clinton at 'Surprise' Stand-Up Shows
Comedian Dave Chappelle recently delivered a scathing stand-up routine, taking aim at Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and appearing to defend Donald Trump from some recent hostility, the New York Observer reported.
Chappelle, who will host Saturday Night Live after the election next week, is in the middle of a set of "surprise shows" prior to his hosting gig.
He told a recent crowd that he believes Clinton was involved in the leak of the infamous Billy Bush tape, in which Donald Trump was recorded making lewd remarks about women.
“What I heard on that tape was gross. But the way I got to hear it was even more gross," he said, "You know that came directly from Hillary.”
He continued, saying that it was the latest example of a Democratic candidate he said was "not right".
Chappelle likened Trump's resilience in the wake of the leak, and other incidents, to Arnold Schwarzenegger's 'Terminator' character.
"That would've devastated anybody else," he said.
The New York City crowd was apparently shocked by the continued and often graphic line of comedic criticism of Clinton.
However the paper said that Chappelle voted early for Clinton in Ohio, but that he "didn't feel good" about his decision.
