Jon Stewart and Dave Chappelle are currently out on a co-headlining tour and they sat down with CNN to discuss how it came to be and as they both are comedians, the current hot button topic of Louis C.K., and since both men have commented on Donald Trump, with Stewart mocking his announcement to run for President and Dave Chappelle making remarks about him when he hosted Saturday Night Live just days after winning the election.
While both men owned their words, Stewart felt like the rest of the nation would see the ridiculousness he saw in the man taking the escalator down Trump Towers to announce his running. While Chappelle felt the words he said were the right thing at the right time but was quick to state that people of color have often felt the sting many felt in 2016 and he has not been happy about the job since.
Whenever we’re watching these two comedians talk, they always seem to frame things properly. It’s even mentioned by Chappelle in the interview, besides perhaps Barrack Obama, Jon Stewart seems to have a calming effect on many.
