Four years after hosting the first SNL after the 2016 election, Dave Chappelle returned to host the show last night (11/7), when, after days of counting, the race was finally called for Joe Biden. Unsurprisingly, he touched on the vote in his opening monologue, as well as coronavirus, masks, his summer of socially distanced comedy shows, and much more.
"This morning after the results came in, I got a text from a friend of mine in London," Chappelle said. "She said the world feels like a safer place now that America has a new president. And I said, 'That’s great, but America doesn’t.' You guys remember what life was like before Covid? I do. There was a mass shooting every week, you remember that? Thank god for Covid. Something had to lock these murderous whites up, keep them in the house."
