Controversial comedian Dave Chappelle has taken a side in the political arena by publicly endorsing Andrew Yang for the Democratic Presidential candidate in the 2020 election.
Yang recently qualified for the ABC News Democratic Debate, slated for February 10, prompting Chapelle to join him on the campaign trail. Their first stop was Ames, Iowa where the funny man expounded on his support for Yang.
“You know you hear people talk about ‘Make America Great Again,'” he said. “How about Make America Feel Better Again? And I think his platform handles a lot of the emotional content of what being an American is like.” He went on to say, “I like the idea of giving people choices, putting money in their hands and giving them the choice. They would consider things that aren’t even an option to consider now. And that part of his platform I found incredibly exciting.”
Chappelle will be campaigning with Yang in Iowa and South Carolina, where he will be performing on Wednesday and Thursday in Columbia.
