Tina Fey Slams Donald Trump on Weekend Update, Eats Cake
Tina Fey made a triumphant, hilarious, emotional and delicious return to Weekend Update on Thursday night.
The former co-anchor of this Saturday Night Live segment appeared opposite Colin Jost and Michael Che to discuss Donald Trump, the events in Charlottesville last weekend and the President's subsequent reaction.
It should be noted that Fey graduated from the University of Virigina, where a rally organized by White Supremacists took place a week ago.
"It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville," Fey said to open her speech, prior to calling out President Trump for his refusal to condemn the violence committed by neo-Nazis at the demonstration.
"[Trump] comes out and he says that he condemns violence on many sides, and I’m feeling sick because I’ve seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn’t confused by it.
"Nazis are always bad. I don’t care what you say."
Somehow, even in 2017, this is a statement that many people have had to say in response to the President NOT saying anything like it.
Fey then offered advice to those trying to make a difference… and/or simply trying to keep safe.
"I know a lot of us are feeling anxious and asking ourselves, 'What can I do?'
"So I would urge people this Saturday, instead of participating in these screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business that you support – maybe a Jewish-run bakery, or an African-American-run bakery.
"Order a cake with the American flag on it like this one and just eat it."
And with that, yes: you better believe Fey tore into a giant sheet cake.
"The next time you see a bunch of white guys in polo shirts screaming about taking our country back – and you wanna scream, 'It's not our country. We stole it from the Native Americans," she explained, adding:
"And when they have a peaceful protest at Standing Rock we shoot at them with rubber bullets, but we let you chinless turds march through the streets with semi-automatic weapons.'
"And while you wanna yell that, don't yell it at the Klan, Colin. Yell it into the cake."
