Dave Chappelle, Political Visionary

How much of this illustration, now zooming around the Internet, is actually "true"? I don't know. But if you haven't seen it yet, enjoy.

The top part, a picture of Chappelle during his TV heyday, does indeed appear to come from a Chappelle's Show episode in March, 2003. You can see it around time 0:22 of the clip below. Could the Fox News screen capture at the bottom possibly be legit? Versus photoshopped? I guess anything is possible. [Shocker update! The Fox part is a fake.] Either way, thanks to Damien Ma and @InfamousP.
