Dave Chappelle pities 'poor white' Trump voters in new Netflix special

In the expletive-laden trailer, which runs just under two minutes, Chappelle talks about the 2016 presidential election and the poor white people who elected Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.

"We've got a lot of trouble out of them", Chappelle told the audience during his stand-up routine. I looked them right in their coal-smeared faces.

"I'm standing there thinking in my mind, 'You dumb motherfuc***. You. Are".

"In fact, I'm not even lying, not to sound f*cked up, but I felt sorry for them", Chappelle adds.

Equanimity is Chappelle's third stand-up comedy special on Netflix, available for streaming on december 31.

The comedian goes on to compliment the group of people he spoke with, calling them "decent folk", but called their comments about Trump "naive, poor, white people things".

Chappelle previously said he suspected Trump would win based on his conversations with neighbors, fans and others outside of the liberal coastal metropolises that backed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The debut of Dave Chappelle: The Bird Revelation makes it two new Chappelle specials bowing that day, the first being the recently announced Dave Chappelle: Equanimiy.

"It's a Celebration, Bitches" begins at 9:00 a.m. ET/PT, with all 28 episodes of Chappelle's Show running nonstop and culminating in a Midnight presentation of the seminal Chappelle stand-up special Killin' Them Softly.

"I'm wishing Donald Trump luck", he said at the time. He's fighting for me'. More hilariously, he urges them to come to the realization that he's actually not "their" president, but rather that of the rich.
