Celebrities left mocking messages for the new Trump administration during one of the last White House parties thrown by the Obamas, the comedian said on the new episode of supermodel Naomi Campbell’s “No Filter” YouTube series, released Tuesday.
“Remember when the Trump administration moved in, they said the Obama staff left dirty notes for us in all the drawers and all the cabinets?” Chappelle recalled.
“I saw this happening. I’m not going to say who did it,” he continued. “But it was celebrities, writing all this crazy shit and putting them all over there. I saw them doing it, so when I saw it on the news I laughed real hard.”
Chappelle did not reveal what he saw being written on the notes.
Donald Trump press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in 2019 that messages found in the White House after Trump took office read “you will fail” and “you aren’t going to make it.”
Grisham’s allegations at the time were hotly denied by Obama aides. Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice described them as a “bald-faced lie.”
