Aziz Ansari took the stage for the monologue on Saturday Night Live, and after mentioning it was only the day after the inauguration of Donald Trump, the SNL host shared some thoughts on the new president.

And the first thing that popped into his mind was, “It’s pretty cool to know that he’s probably at home right now watching a brown guy make fun of him, right?

Watch as Ansari talks about how, now that Trump has won, people don’t have to pretend not to be racist—what Ansari termed the lowercase KKK movement—how Beyoncé is not moving out of the country, how Chris Brown compares to Trump, and the impact of the Women’s March on Washington.  

And much like Dave Chappelle’s monologue from November, Ansari, despite what Vladimir Putin might say, actually manages to leave a message of hope for all the people who are scared for the next four years.
