Instead, the comedian said he saw celebrities leave the “dirty notes” at a White House party, though he declined to get into specifics during an interview with supermodel Naomi Campbell for a Tuesday episode of her web series No Filter.
“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 asked.
“I saw this happening. I’m not going to say who did it,” he added. “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 say what was written in the notes.
The mean-spirited notes made headlines in 2019, when then-White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham described how the Trump team found the White House when they arrived.
“Every office was filled with Obama books, and we had notes left behind that said, ‘You will fail,’ ‘You aren’t going to make it,'” Grisham said.
Obama administration officials didn’t take kindly to the notion that they left the notes, with at least two calling it a lie.
Susan Rice, former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, called the claim a “bald faced lie,” and former senior director of the National Security Council Jon Wolfsthal called it an “outrageous lie.”
