A sincere thanks to #SNL for taking a chance on Dave Chappelle.
Chappelle, who is no stranger to controversy, hosted #SNL after the shocking outcome of the 2016 presidential election in favor of Donald Trump. (see Transcript of monologue)
Opening the monologue with side-splitting jokes about the president-elect, it was Chappelle’s closing statement that will be etched in the annals of NBC’s history, forevermore.
“I’m wishing Donald Trump luck and I’m going to give him a chance and we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he gives us one too.”
Dave: Thanks for the laughter and giving us the ok to start the healing process.
