This episode of SNL also marks the first since Donald Trump's inauguration, which means plenty of scathing Trump jokes are to be expected.

Aziz Ansari, 33, showed off his gift for gab while appearing on SNL, captivating the audience with his opening monologue January 21.

"Don't tweet about me being lame or the show", Ansari said. But it probably wasn't expected for viewers to be faced with a monologue that was so politically relevant and spot on that it nearly didn't feel like an SNL monologue. I'm talking about the people, who as soon as Trump won, they're like 'we don't have to pretend like we're not racist anymore!' no, no, if you're one of these people: please go back to pretending!

Ansari referred to his idea of this "lower case kkk" as a smaller white supremacy group that is nearly hidden, but according to Ansari feels as though under Trump's presidency they can come out into the light now.
