The 2016 election might be a little over a year behind us, but comedian Dave Chappelle still has some things to get off his chest. His new Netflix stand-up special Dave Chappelle: Equanimity is set to arrive on New Year's Eve, so the streaming service has released a preview that has the comedian giving his perspective on what it was like voting alongside Donald Trump supporters and the interactions he had with them.

Here's the pretty-much-NSFW clip from Dave Chappelle: Equanimity, debuting December 31st:

"I've never had a problem with white people ever in my life, but, full disclosure, poor whites are my least favorite. We've got a lot of trouble out of them. And I've never seen so many of them up close. Looked at them right in their coal-smeared faces. And to my surprise, you know what I didn't see? I didn't see one deplorable face in that group. Saw some angry faces and some determined faces but they felt like decent folk. I'm not even lying! No, they did … I felt sorry for them. I know the game now. I know that rich people call poor white people 'trash.' And the only reason I know that is I made so much money last year that the rich whites told me they say it at a cocktail party.

"… I stood in line with them like all Americans are required to do in a democracy, nobody skips the line to vote … and I listened to them. I listened to them say naive poor white people things: 'Donald Trump is going to go to Washington and he's gonna fight for us.' I'm standing there thinking, 'you dumb motherf****r … you are poor. He's fighting for me!'"

Here's a look at the original teaser for the special, which shows Chappelle moving on from The Walking Dead's Negan to some "stranger things":

Emmy Award-winning comedy titan Dave Chappelle is capping a banner year with a stand-up event packed with scorching new material, self-reflection and tough love. Chappelle holds court in a special homecoming performance filmed in front of a packed house at the historic Warner Theater in Washington D.C. In "Dave Chappelle: Equanimity," the comedian hilariously revels in taking on culture and class, politics and the specter of getting old.
