Saturday Night Live kicked off its latest episode by featuring Vladimir Putin celebrating the inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States.
It actually wasn't that funny of a cold open.
But things changed for the much better once Aziz Ansari took the stage for his hosting monologue.
A day after Trump was sworn in as President, Ansari acknowledged his the new Commander-in-Chief is obsessed with SNL, joking how it's "pretty cool to know he's probably at home right now watching a brown guy make fun of him."
But while Ansari clearly has many issues with Trump, he warned viewers to be "careful," saying: "We can't demonize everyone who voted for Trump."
He then compared Trump to a celebrity with a violent temper and a history of abuse against women.
"I'm sure there are a lot of people who 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,'" not the "extracurriculars," Ansari said, later adding:
"We're divided, it's okay.
"We've always been divided by some of these big political issues. It's fine. As long as we treat each other with respect and remember that ultimately we're all Americans, we'll be fine."
From here, Ansari launched into an attack against members of the "kkk," begging them to go back to pretending that they aren't actually racist.
It was both a humorous and insightful take on the state of the nation.
