Dave Chappelle is apologizing for suggesting back in November that America should actually give Donald Trump a chance.
While speaking to the crowd at the Robin Hood Gala in New York City on Monday night, the comedian admitted that he “f*cked up” when he said during his SNL monologue that he wanted to give Donald the benefit of the doubt.
“I was the first guy on TV to say ‘Give Trump a chance.’ I f*cked up. Sorry,” he said. “I think that is way out of step with the way people feel in America. Am I wrong about that? Every day you wake up and you never know what he is going to do next. He’s exciting like you thought a black president would have been.”
Chappelle’s comments came hours after news broke that Trump shared classified information with the Russian foreign minister and Russian ambassador to the U.S. last week.
On Tuesday morning, Trump tweeted: “As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety, Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.”
