VIDEO: Aziz Ansari's 'SNL' Monologue: 'Yesterday Trump Was Inaugurated, Today an Entire Gender Protested Against Him'

Aziz Ansari made his hosting debut on tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live, making him the very first person of South Asian descent to take on hosting duties!

In his opening monologue, the 33-year-old Master of None actor tackled new President Donald Trump.

“Yesterday Trump was inaugurated, today an entire gender protested against him,” he said, addressing Donald‘s inauguration on Friday (January 20) and the 2017 Women’s March on Saturday (January 21).

“Change comes from large groups of angry people, and if day one [of Donald's's presidency] is any indication, you are part of the largest group of angry people I’ve ever seen,” he added.

He also talked about being a Muslim and “growing Islamophobia.”

    I don’t really know who he is . . . but I watched his monologue on SNL. I thought it was eloquent and moving and powerful.

    an entire gender? i’m a woman, I didn’t protest and none of the women I know protested either. A LOT of women voted for Trump.

    I agree with you – I loved his monologue! Aziz Ansari is an actor and comedian. He has a show on Netflix, has had several comedy specials, and has had several movie roles. I remember him best in his role as Tom Haverford in the TV show “Parks and Recreation”.

    You’re right: it wasn’t an entire gender – just people who think, as evidenced by Trump’s behavior (Billy Bush, remember?) that he is a misogynistic narcissist who thinks his fame entitles him to grab women by the pu**y.

    He was on Parks and Rec and now wrote and acted in Master of None – HIGHLY recommend, very good and won lots of awards. Season 2 is coming out this year.
    He’s hilarious and the speech was right on.

    men talk stupid about women all the time. it’s called locker room talk.

    ““Yesterday Trump was inaugurated, today an entire gender protested against him” so by this logic, every year in Skokie, Illinois when the Nazis march, a whole race is protesting.
