Don Cheadle did an amazing job hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.
It only took some text on a t-shirt to state a very powerful message on national television: “Protect Trans Kids,” read the t-shirt he was wearing right before introducing Gary Clark Jr.
Thousands of tweets thanking Don Cheadle for his silent statement of support for transgender children made him Trending Topic on Sunday.

At the end of the show, Cheadle wore a CCCP —the abbreviation for the full name of the Soviet Union in Russian— hockey jersey. When he turned around to thank all the stars of that night’s episode of SNL, everyone saw the name Trump written in Cyrillic on the back of his jersey: “Tяump,” along with the number 45 of 45th U.S. President.
