On January 21, Indian American actor and comedian Aziz Ansari hosted the first Saturday Night Live in the era of President Donald Trump, and predictably his monologue contained a lot of materials on race and religion.

Ansari, the first South Asian to host the iconic show, began the monologue by saying, “I can’t believe this! I’m here hosting Saturday Night Live!

His first target? No prize for guessing: the newly minted president, whom he called the “Chris Brown of politics.”

The Columbia, SC, -born comedian said Trump was “probably at home right now watching a brown guy make fun of him.”

Here are some of the best zingers he delivered:

Crazy couple of days, man. Yesterday, Trump was inaugurated. Today, an entire gender protested against him.”

I’m sure there’s a lot of people voted for Trump the same way a lot of people listen to the music of Chris Brown, where it’s like, “Hey, man! I’m just here for the tunes. I’m just here for the tunes! I don’t know about that other stuff. I just like the dancing and the music. I don’t condone the extracurriculars.”

There’s like this new, lower-case K.K.K. movement that started — this kind of casual white supremacy. “Oh, let me put my foot in the pool and see how cold this water really is.” No! No! I’m talking about these people that are running around saying stuff like, “Trump won! Go back to Africa!” “Trump won! Go back to Mexico!” They see me: “Trump won, go back — to where you came from.”

Is that the plan, by the way? We’re all going to move? All the minorities? 40-some percent of the country? Every minority’s going to move? Beyoncé’s going to move? Beyoncé ain’t moving.

I ain’t moving. Okay.?
