After a week that saw the President of the United States defend neo-Nazis, a lot of people are having a hard time coping, but Tina Fey appeared on Thursday’s Weekend Update with Michael Che and Colin Jost with advice on how to deal with white supremacists.
“I have nothing but fond memories of my time there,” Fey said of her alma mater, UVA in Charlottesville. “I graduated a virgin and I still liked it. That’s how good the architecture is down there. So it broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville.”
“And then our president, Donald John Trump, and I don’t think enough people talk about what a stupid, jackass name that is. Whatever, he gets away with it because he’s gorgeous. Anyway, Donny John comes out and he says that he condemns violence ‘on many sides,’ on many sides, Colin. I’m feeling sick because, you know, I have seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn’t confused by it. No, Colin, Nazis are always bad, I don’t care what you say.”
Tina then discussed the violent rally and noted that there were more to come, but she had a bit of advice for those who want to protest white supremacists.
“I don’t want anymore good people to get hurt,” she said. “I know a lot of us are feeling anxious and asking ourselves, what can I do? I’m just one person, what can I do? I would urge people Saturday, instead of participating in the screaming matches and violence, find a local business you support, maybe a Jewish run bakery or African-American run bakery,” and buy a cake and let the Nazis yell into a vacuum.
