Comedian Dave Chappelle appeared briefly at the Roots’ Roots Picnic festival in New York City this afternoon, where he offered a few comments about the current presidential election and Republican candidate Donald Trump.

“I hope everybody votes. I know it’s a tough decision,” Chappelle joked. “Hillary Clinton vs. white Malcolm X. That crazy character, motherfuckers, is gonna kill us all. And lower my taxes.”

Chappelle appeared just after comedian Neal Brennan’s set. Watch a fan-shot video of his speech below.
