Don Cheadle, who took on hosting duties for this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” made fashion statements on the NBC program.
The Academy Award nominee closed the show in a Soviet Union jersey with “Trump” and the number “45” on the back.
“Big thanks to (musical guest) Gary Clark Jr., Mr. Alec Baldwin. Wow, what a week, what a week,” the first-time host said. “You guys have been amazing, thank you.”
Twitter took notice of the “Black Monday” actor’s duds.
“Don Cheadle’s hockey jersey at the end of #SNL…” one user commented with several wide-eyed emojis.
Another user documented their thought process:
“Why is Don Cheadle wearing a CCCP jerse- (he turns around) OHHHH I GET IT” they tweeted.
Some on the Twitterverse were tickled.
“OMG HE’S WEARING A TRUMP SOVIET UNION HOCKEY JERSEY I- (die)” a person shared, adding a giggling Shirley Temple GIF.
Another called the wardrobe choice “Legendary!”
“@DonCheadle wore a Soviet Union CCCP hockey jersey at the end of the #SNL tonight with #Trump on the back of it with number 45 for his presidency!” the person wrote. “Well done Donny!”
Earlier in the evening, Cheadle also donned a shirt that read “PROTECT TRANS KIDS” while introducing Clark Jr., a move that was celebrated.
“Thank you Don Cheadle for using your platform to help save lives,” one user expressed.
“Your shirt fills my heart,” another posted.
