In the opening monologue of his appearance on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend, comedian Dave Chappelle said that he understands why so many people love former President Donald Trump.

Chappelle said that he lives among Ohio’s “poor Whites,” so he knows why they love Trump:

“I hear it every day. He’s very loved. And the reason he’s loved is because people in Ohio have never seen anything like him.”

“He’s what I call an ‘honest liar,’” Chappelle said. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” the comedian explained:

“I’ve never seen a White, male, billionaire screaming at the top of his lungs: ‘This whole system is rigged!’”

Chappelle recalled when Trump made the claim during a 2016 presidential debate with Hillary Clinton and the moderator asked Trump for proof:

“Remember, what he said, bro? He said, ‘I know the system is rigged, because I use it.’”

“I said, ‘God, D*mn!’”

And, when Clinton attacked Trump for not paying taxes, Chappelle recalled, Trump told her that “If you want me to pay my taxes, then change the tax code. But, I know you won’t, because your friends and your donors enjoy the same tax breaks that I do.”

“And, with that, my friends, a star was born. No one had ever seen anything like that,” Chappelle concluded.
