While Saturday Night Live’s cold open (without Alec Baldwin) didn’t provide any great political digs, Aziz Ansari brought it in a stand-up monologue he devoted entirely to Trump, his racist supporters, and Islamophobia. “Pretty cool to know that [Donald Trump] is at home watching a brown man make fun of him.” … “Today, an entire gender voted against him.” He also wisely compares Donald Trump to Chris Brown.

And then he ended it on a perfect note: “Presidents don’t make big change. Large groups of angry people make change, and if Day One is any indication, you’re going to make a lot of change.” Yes!
