Dave Chappelle has bad news for ‘dumb white people’ who voted for Trump: ‘You are poor — he’s fighting for me!’

Published

Comedian Dave Chappelle said he “feels sorry” for “poor whites” who got scammed by President Donald Trump.

“The poor whites are my least favorites,” the comedian says in a preview of his upcoming Netflix special, “Equanimity.”

He said “dumb white people” who backed Trump were swindled, because the president had no intention of helping them but instead is further enriching wealthy Americans — like Chappelle himself.

“I’m standing there thinking in my mind, you dumb motherf*cker,” Chappelle says. “You are poor — he’s fighting for me!”

Chappelle, who lives in rural Ohio town Yellow Springs, said he sees Trump supporters all the time, and he said they’re not as hateful as they’re made out to be.

“To my surprise, you know what I didn’t see? I didn’t see one deplorable face in that group,” Chappelle says. “I saw some angry faces, and some determined faces — but they felt like decent folk.”

“In fact, I’m not even lying, not to sound f*cked up, but I felt sorry for them,” Chappelle adds. “I know the game now. I know that rich white people call poor white people ‘trash,’ and the only reason I know that, is because I made so much money last year, the rich whites told me they say it at a cocktail party — and I’m not with that sh*t.”

Nobel economist says he’s done the math — and the risk Trump and McConnell pose to the economy is ‘terrifying’

Published

on

Very much a student of New Deal economics, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has often stressed that helping the unemployed during an economic downturn not only helps those who are out of work — it also benefits the economy on the whole. Krugman made that point many times during the Great Recession, and in a column published this week, the liberal economist warns that the “coronavirus recession of 2020” will become even worse if unemployed Americans don’t receive the help that they need.

Government watchdogs, Democratic lawmakers, and pro-democracy advocates declared it a "Friday Night Massacre" for the U.S. Postal Service after news broke in a classic end-of-the-week dump that Louis DeJoy—a major GOP donor to President Donald Trump and the recently appointed Postmaster General—had issued a sweeping overhaul of the agency, including the ouster of top executives from key posts and the reshuffling of more than two dozen other officials and operational managers.
