We're really starting to get used to our weekly dose of Hasan Minhaj.

The comedian's weekly series, Patriot Act releases a new episode every week "exploring the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity.”

This week, Minhaj is talking about the Indian Lok Sabha elections again; his earlier episode about the same topic made him a target for trolls on social media: "I can't go online without desi trolls telling me I ruined democracy," he shared. But Hasan ain't backing down.

The Indian-origin comic took digs at the BJP's landslide victory, their questionable candidates (including a former soap opera star, an Islamophobic hate-monger and a MPA who has 34 criminal cases registered against him) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself.

"Look, you may not agree with his politics but the man [Modi] knows a good photo op!"

He also poked fun at Congress and their disastrous run; the party's president, Rahul Gandhi didn't even win a seat in Amethi, a constituency his family has held for decades.
