Dave Chappelle shared his opinions about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump during a surprise show on Friday night in New York. The comedian will make his "Saturday Night Live" hosting debut on Nov. 12 -- the first episode post-election Tuesday.

According to the Observer, Chappelle slammed the media for "twisting" Donald Trump's words in the leaked 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape in which Trump tells Billy Bush, "When you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything," and the now-famous line, "Grab 'em by the p---."

"What I heard on that tape was gross," the Observer reported Chappelle saying. "But the way I got to hear it was even more gross. You know that came directly from Hillary."

Chappelle added that, to him, Trump's comments could not be classified as sexual assault, according to the Observer, which is published by Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, husband to Ivanka Trump.

"Sexual assault? It wasn't. He said, 'And when you're a star, they let you do it.' That phrase implies consent. I just don't like the way the media twisted that whole thing. Nobody questioned it," Chappelle said.

The comedian said that he had already voted for Clinton in Ohio, but did not hold back expressing his doubts.

"She's going to be on a coin someday. And her behavior has not been coin-worthy," he said. "She's not right and we all know she's not right."

The comedian also joked about his "SNL" hosting duties.

"You know there's a pool going on whether or not I show up. I got $100,000 that says I won't."
