UVA Alum Tina Fey Slams White Supremacists After Charlottesville Violence On ‘Weekend Update’


UVA Alum Tina Fey Slams White Supremacists After Charlottesville Violence On ‘Weekend Update’

Former “Saturday Night Live” star Tina Fey, who is an alumna of the University of Virginia, appeared on Thursday’s “Weekend Update” in a U.Va. sweatshirt to weigh in on the violence in Charlottesville, Va., calling it a great excuse to gorge on sheet cake.

“It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville,” Fey said before commenting on President Trump’s controversial response to the weekend violence.

“Donny John comes out and he says that he condemns violence on many sides — on many sides, Collin,” she told host Colin Jost.

“And I’m feeling sick because, you know, I’ve seen ‘Raiders of the Lost Arc,’ and I wasn’t confused by it. No Collin, Nazis are always bad. I don’t care what you say,” she continued.

The Hill added:

Fey said instead of going to counterprotest “alt right” rallies scheduled for this weekend, people should go and buy cakes with American flags on them.

She proceeded to eat into one such cake, as well as leaders including House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).

“Where’s Paul Ryan in all of this? You’re supposed to be the cool, young congressman, but you don’t know how to ‘at’ somebody on Twitter? ‘Racism, racism is bad @realDonaldTrump,’ you p—-,” she said, referring to the House Speaker not calling the president out on Twitter.

“Then Donny Johnny says we need to defend our country’s beautiful Confederate monuments, when you know he would take them down in a second if he thought he could build a bunch of poorly constructed condos on the spot,” she said.

Fey’s comments come after Trump tweeted he did not believe the “beautiful” Confederate statues and monuments should be taken down, claiming they are apart of “the history and culture of our great country.”

On Tuesday, Trump stirred more controversy when he doubled down on his initial remarks to the violence on Saturday when he condemned the violence “on many sides,” saying there is “blame on both sides” and that there were “very fine people” on both sides of the debate.
