Award-winning actor Don Cheadle had more than laughs on his mind when he hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. And he made that clear with some of his wardrobe choices.
When he introduced Gary Clark Jr., the music guest, Cheadle wore a T-shirt that said, “Protect Trans Kids.”
And at the end of the show, Cheadle wore a Soviet Union hockey jersey, and when he turned around viewers could see the name Trump on it along with the number 45. (Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States.)
Viewers spotted the clothes with a point of view and generally approved. Many took to Twitter to offer their reactions.
Another great reason to love Don Cheadle!! ❤️?❤️
