Netflix has released a new two-minute long trailer for Dave Chappelle’s upcoming special in which the star of the Chappelle’s Show can be seen ripping a vape while reflecting on Donald Trump’s rise to power.
(Scroll down for the video)
In it, Chappelle, using his own colorful words, describes interacting with folks waiting in line to cast their votes during the presidential election and hearing them say what he refers to in the clip as “naive poor white people things” like Trump is “gonna go to Washington and he’s gonna fight for us.” Meanwhile, he can’t help but think that these people are “dumb” because Trump is, in his mind, going to Washington to fight for people like him – the rich, the wealthy. After all, Netflix did pay him a whopping $60 million for his trio of specials.
And what’s he vaping in the video? What appears to be a Juul brand vaporizer. Vice agrees. It looks like a Juul, which was spun off from the Pax Vaporizer company (Pax Labs, formerly Ploom) not long ago, only to quickly rise to the top of the U.S. e-cigarette market in the short time since its departure. Which is perhaps not surprising given who acquired it in the process, Japan Tobacco International (JTI).
Here’s the new trailer for “Equanimity” courtesy of Netflix’s YouTube channel:
At the time of reporting, this video had over 500,000 views on YouTube. It also had over 4,000 likes and less than 300 dislikes.

Professional American basketball player Draymond Green, a Michigan native who currently balls for the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, was included in Chappelle’s latest stand-up special, to which he reportedly replied, “that’s dope” while adding that Chappelle is one of his favorite comedians, the Mercury News reported.
“That’s dope. Chappelle is one of my favorite comedians of all time.”
Green also tweeted out a video of the joke that Chappelle made referencing him in the bit. The video he tweeted had over 900,000 views at the time we reported this.

For those wondering when the show is out – it’s already out. It came out on New Year’s Eve. If you have Netflix, go watch it now and come back and tell us what you think!
Chappelle wasn’t the only high profile celebrity caught vaping on video in recent times, as Sean Hannity, who one could say is pretty clearly on the other side of the political spectrum from Chappelle, was also recently spotted vaping on camera.
