The comedian, who has previously criticized Trump's treatment of the "historically disenfranchised", has a new Netflix special coming out on New Year's Eve where he tackles Trump, the economy and race.

The new specials expand Chappelle's relationship with Netflix, where his original blockbuster deal in November included three specials. 'He's fighting for me'.

Dave Chappelle admits to feeling sorry for the "poor white" population who voted for Trump in a new comedy routine.

'I've never seen so many of them up close.

2017 might not have been a year to remember, but Dave Chappelle is here to ensure you'll get to laugh your way into 2018. I didn't see one deplorable face in that group.

Officials said that by Saturday the Thomas Fire had charred 59,893 hectares (148,000 acres), an area about the size of Chicago. Although the Thomas Fire is still raging, most of the smaller fires are being gradually brought under control, officials said.

Chappelle previously said he suspected Trump would win based on his conversations with neighbors, fans and others outside of the liberal coastal metropolises that backed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Chappelle went on to say that the Trump supporters he met seemed like "decent folk" but that he "felt sorry for them". I looked them right in their coal-smeared faces. "I know the game now".

"My parents did just well enough so that I could grow up poor around white people", Chappelle jokes in the latest trailer. The network is airing a daylong New Year's Day "Chappelle's Show" marathon, featuring all 28 episodes leading up his seminal 2000 HBO stand-up special "Killin' Them Softly".

"I'm wishing Donald Trump luck", he said at the time.

Netflix released a clip from the comedian's upcoming stand-up special, "Dave Chappelle: Equanimity", on Wednesday, and it gives a peak at one of the topics covered.
