There is a reason Democrats still waste so much time, money, and energy going after Donald Trump. They fear his continued influence over the country. Even if he isn’t elected to office again, Trump commands a strong, loyal group of Americans. His influence remains strong, despite what some pundits claim.
So, it’s safe to assume liberals were shocked when Dave Chappelle started talking about Trump during his recent SNL appearance. The liberal audience listened as Chappelle talked about the left’s claims that the “Trump era” was over. Chappelle knew it wasn’t and was convinced he’d have a comeback.
Why? Just listen.

Wow. That liberal New York audience didn’t know what to do when Chappelle talked about Trump in a kind of, sort of good way. Chappelle is in no way a Republican. But he is one of a few liberals who are willing to be honest in this day and age (most of them are comedians).
He revealed he knew Trump would continue to be a force to reckon with because Trump was willing to be honest to Americans about the corrupt system. Many black folks have long believed our country was rigged against them. But politicians, even Obama and Clinton, refuse to say it.
But Trump comes along and tells everyone, white or black, rich or poor, that the system is rigged against them. How does he know? As Chappelle says because he profited from it. Trump made waves in 2016 by saying things like this. As a rich man, he was able to win over regular voters by admitting he benefited from a corrupt system but was promising to change it.
Even a liberal like Chappelle knows that will resonate with millions of voters. Right now, some Republicans think they need to move on from Donald Trump. They think he was responsible for the lack of a “red wave” in some of the midterm elections. But they don’t understand that many voters only trust Trump. And there are few Republicans like him willing to speak so frankly.
Trump’s biggest challenge is sticking to his pro-American crusade, rather than complaining about other Republicans and whining about 2020. The more he claims the election was stolen, the more he hurts the GOP and their shot at 2024.
But if someone like Chappelle is willing to admit Trump’s effectiveness, you know the rest of the Democratic Party is still panicking.
