The Trailer for Sarah Silverman’s New Show I Love You, America Is a Musical Examination of White Privilege

That's my exact aesthetic.

The show wants to connect with "un-like-minded people" but from the trailer, it looks like this will be less about making sure Trump voters and white nationalists feel heard, and more about learning about our blindspots from those with different life experiences.

Saturday Night Live is off for the summer, which is upsetting for Kate McKinnon, who's forced to keep her delightfully creepy impressions of political figures bottled up inside, with no outlet.
