Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) and Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.) spotted comedian Dave Chappelle wandering the halls of Congress Thursday, and he obliged the starstruck lawmakers with a selfie.
Just three people who understand that there’s only two genders,” Boebert wrote on X, including a photo of her and Luna with the “Chappelle’s Show” star in the Capitol Rotunda.
“Ran into @DaveChappelle,” Luna tweeted, sharing the same photo as Boebert.
“Thanks for all you do,” the Florida Republican told the comedian during the friendly encounter.
Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) was also filmed greeting Chappelle and chit chatting with the funny man.
The comedy legend was reportedly at the Capitol for a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus, according to Punchbowl News.
Chappelle, a Washington, DC, native, offered a different explanation for his surprise appearance, when asked by a reporter.
“A lot of the people I grew up with work on the hill, so I hang out here sometimes when I’m in DC, to catch up with old friends,” he said.
Chappelle is performing a stand-up show in DC Thursday.
The politically incorrect comedian has come under fire numerous times in his career for jokes about gay, lesbian and transgender people.
Most recently, Chappelle caught flak for accusing the US government of backing Israel’s “war crimes” against Palestinians during an October performance in Boston.
Some in the audience walked out after Chappelle reportedly said that he didn’t think people should lose their jobs for supporting Palestinians.
