Aziz Ansari hosted Saturday Night Live the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration. So you can imagine how he opened the show, It was a roller coaster of laughs and cheers.
Ansari is not a fan of racism or intolerance like most Americans. And he’s really not a fan of the way Donald Trump’s election campaign emboldened a segment of the public to embrace previously hidden racist sentiments — a phenomenon her jokingly refers to as “the lowercase kkk.”

There are some killer punchlines in here — “Yesterday, Trump was inaugurated; today, an entire gender protested against him” — but Ansari’s best moment is a serious one. He closes the monologue with this hopeful statement:
“If you look at our country’s history, change doesn’t come from presidents. Change comes from large groups of angry people. And if day one is any indication, you are part of the largest group of angry people I have ever seen.”
