Chris Rock Joins Dave Chappelle To Burst Democrats' Election Night Bubble On 'SNL'

“Yep, it might be a historic night, but don’t forget it’s a big country."

Saturday Night Live” poked fun at Democrats who were overly confident on election night, with the help of surprise guest Chris Rock.

In the skit, a group of friends made excuses about why the results weren’t going Hillary Clinton’s way. It was up to characters played by Rock and fellow comedian Dave Chappelle to be the voice of reason.

“Yep, it might be a historic night, but don’t forget it’s a big country,” said Chappelle’s character, after one pal stated at the beginning of the evening how she couldn’t believe America was about to have its first female president.

After Alaska was called for Donald Trump, another friend said she now thought America was racist. But it evidently came as no surprise to Chappelle’s character. “Oh, my God,” he said. “I remember my great-grandfather told me something like that. He was like a slave or something, I don’t know.”

When another friend asked why people weren’t turning out for Clinton in the same way that they did for President Barack Obama, Rock quipped that it may have something to do with “replacing a charismatic 40-year-old black guy with a 70-year-old white woman.”
