Comedian Dave Chappelle exists in a bit of the bubble in the comedic world, not unlike some of the greats before him.
Chappelle is unapologetically hilarious, but also unafraid of bruising some egos in the process. He’s a realist at times, and isn’t too well defined by any political compass.
Now, the enigmatic funnyman has revealed a slice of history that he was a witness to, some four years after the fact.
When former President Donald Trump first moved into the White House in January 2017, his staffers said they found nasty notes stuffed into the drawers and cabinets — a claim President Barack Obama’s aides fiercely denied.
But comedian Dave Chappelle now says the notes did exist — but were penned by a group of unnamed, mischievous celebrities during a goodbye bash for the departing administration.
“Remember when the Trump administration moved in, they said the Obama staff left dirty notes for us in all the drawers and all the cabinets?” Chappelle said on a new episode of Naomi Campbell’s “No Filter” YouTube series published Tuesday.
“I saw this happening. I’m not going to say who did it,” he went on.
Chappelle left no doubt, either.
“But it was celebrities, writing all this crazy s–t and putting them all over there. I saw them doing it, so when I saw it on the news, I laughed real hard.”
Chappelle said the notes were left during one of the last White House shindigs thrown by the Obama family before they moved out at the start of Trump’s term.
The Hollywood vitriol against President Trump lasted well through his presidency and continues to this day, unnecessarily stoking political division in this nation, all for the sake of attention.
