Don Cheadle Takes Swipe at President Trump on SNL

He used fashion to make a statement, at one point introducing Gary Clark, Jr., the night's musical guest, while wearing a simple t-shirt adorned with the words "PROTECT TRANS KIDS".

Woman arrested after video shows her spitting, yelling at passengers on flight
The report says that once on the jet bridge, Gonzalez tried to reboard and hit on the head a JetBlue agent who tried to stop her. Officers had to use a spit mask when dealing with the unruly passenger and had to cuff both her hands and feet.

Added actress Laverne Cox, "Thank you @DonCheadle. #ProtectTransKids #WontBeErased", tweeted the National Center for Transgender Equality.

Trans people and trans youth in particular have faced an uphill battle over the last two years, as the Trump administration has rolled back civil protections, most notably public accommodation rights within the Department of Education under Betsy DeVos. "As one who is active in the community, I hear so many awful stories". And studies have shown the suicide rate is alarmingly high among transgender teens. Some eagle-eyed viewers noted that he had slipped into a Soviet Union CCCP hockey jersey emblazoned with the word "Trump" and the number "45", a not-so-subtle dig at the Trump administration's alleged collusion with Russian Federation. Though he started out with drama and action films in the late 80s and 90s (and even received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for his role in Hotel Rwanda), lately he's taken on more action blockbuster and comedy roles. And he made that clear with some of his wardrobe choices.
