Dave Chappelle Compares Donald Trump to a Bad DJ, but Really Trump’s a Bad Host

Dave Chappelle is to blame for Donald Trump. Not really, but his “give Trump a chance” Saturday Night Live monologue this past November had the attention of Americans following the election. We all listened to Dave because he’s Dave Chappelle and Trump ruined that chance before he was officially sworn in.

Nine months later, Chappelle had a chance to revisit that monologue when he appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

“It’s not like I wanted to give him a chance that night”

THEN DON’T SAY THOSE THINGS, DAVE! Don’t you know that we put way too much stock into what celebrities say and that’s why we elected a celebrity as our president? Just say, “We screwed up” like every other rational American and move on. I’m back to blaming Dave for everything. He didn’t believe what he was saying.

“He’s a polarizing dude. He’s like a bad DJ at a good party.”

I have to disagree with Dave and his analogy. Trump isn’t the DJ. A DJ can easily be ignored with good conversation, a lot of alcohol, and headphones. Trump is the host. He’s serving the cheap beer and the disgusting food. He’s kicking people out of the party for no reason. And he’s creeping out all the chicks.

Chappelle at least ended on a positive note.

“I think we’re all getting an education about the presidency,” he said. “I don’t know that I’ve ever heard in the popular discourse people discussing ethics this much. And I didn’t even realize how ethics were necessarily supposed to work at that level of government, and he’s putting all this stuff on the forefront.”

Cool, I guess? We probably should have realized that being the president is a hard job when Obama went from looking 30 to looking 60 in eight years. And ethics work the same on every level: Don’t be Donald Trump.
