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.”

Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.

Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.

#BillCosby has returned to comedy since his trial last summer.

The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
