    You can see him trying to work through the issue for himself during this interview.

    Apparently, he came to a distinct conclusion, because he apologized for his SNL monologue and its tone-deafness only a few weeks later.

    There's some indefinable characteristic about Dave that makes him special. OK, he says that for him, nothing is bigger than comedy. But Chappelle himself has the opportunity to be bigger than comedy. He has a universal appeal that has the potential to bring people together, which is certainly what the world needs now.

    This is still the Dave Chapelle that went to Africa and back. He still knows about the dangers of getting too deep in the money and the fame in America. He remembers what they really do to people with "talent"

    The main problem with Trump is that he's polarized people into two fields: One group, the largest, sees his antics and is reminded of cartoon villains. The other group, his few followers, simply deny everything bad he's ever done or has announced for the future has actually been bad. So you got two viewpoints, one of a misunderstood saint, and one of a dastardly bad guy. You can't really do much with these two images.

    I like this guy doing the interview. It seems like he's actually paying attention to what Dave is talking about and asking questions that relate to what he's saying and keep the conversation going rather than just reading off the notes on his card saying "bring this hot topic up and ask about this thing that Dave did."

    Just going to bounce my tight five on Donald Trump off all of you.
    His hair, wow his hair looks a bit silly. He's presumably balding, and uses silly hair to conceal that! Look at his skin, too, that's a bit of a strange skin tone! He's pretty dumb, man oh man, he's not an intelligent person. Russia.

    "it will be nice when we don't have to talk about him (Trump) as much".

    Well, who says you have to talk about him? It's not because you have to talk about him it's because most comics, not Chappelle because he actually has talent, aren't funny so they resort to the flavor of the day every day. Growing up I don't really ever remember Carson or even Letterman talking about politics at all. Conan doesn't much either. It's the hacks like Colbert, Trevor Noah, Samantha Bee and the SNL cast who can't hold their own without the Trump crutch. Colbert should thank Trump every day for momentarily saving his career. Personally I don't care if they bag on Trump, he put himself in the spotlight and it comes with the territory, but if they plan on making a career out of it they are in for a short career.

    I really respect Dave, even more after this. He didn't try and say anything about Trump or his policies. He kept his peace with it, and stayed out of it. It's like that skit he did, when he talked about celebrities always speaking out when they had nothing of value to say. He stopped the interviewer from turning it into a political debate when politics had nothing to do with what they should have been discussing. And he did it so well. He even turned it around so that you saw it from the perspective of a comedian on Trump, rather than a sweeping overgeneralisation that people seem to be so fond of. Respect.
