DAVE CHAPPELLE EXPLAINS WHY HE'S SUPPORTING ANDREW YANG: Dave Chappelle has revealed why he is endorsing 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang for president. According to the Des Moines Register, he said, “If people listen to me, so be it, if they don’t, so be it, but I know I’m doing my civic duty by just saying the thing I believe in. This is without irony or a punchline, I’m just telling you – this guy’s got some great ideas, you should check it out.” Chappelle added that the number one reason that he is voting for Yang is because of his universal basica income proposal known as the freedom dividend. Chappelle said, “The wealth disparity between me and my neighbors is immense. It’s heartbreaking. And if you know a third of the people up the street can’t buy groceries, then you start to feel an imperative concern. It’s not the kind of thing I could just see and hope for the best, I should probably say something.” He also added, “I don’t look at Trump supporters as my enemy at all. I understand why people voted for Trump I understand people are desperate. And I think that Andrew is right you run against the reasons that Trump got elected. I got friends on both sides of the political aisle, I got fans on both sides of the political aisle. A lot of people say professionally it’s not wise to support any candidate, but this idea is so good, that I think it should exist.”
