Tina Fey Responds to Charlottesville and Trump by Screaming into a Cake on ‘Weekend Update: Summer Edition’

Here’s a clip from last night’s Weekend Update special, where Colin Jost and Michael Che welcome SNL alum and UVA graduate Tina Fey to offer her take on the latest news surrounding the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville last weekend, Trump’s response, and the Neo-Nazi rallies that are reportedly set to happen this weekend. “I would urge people this Saturday instead of participating in the screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business you support. Maybe a Jewish-run bakery or an African-American-run bakery. Order a cake with the American flag on it, and, um, just eat it, Colin,” she says. “And the next time when you see a bunch of white boys in polo shirts screaming about taking our country back when you want to scream ‘It’s not our country, we stole it from the Native Americans, 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 when you want to yell that don’t yell it at the Klan, Colin. Yell it into the cake.” And if “sheet caking” isn’t for you, Fey has another suggestion: “I really want to encourage all good, sane Americans to treat these rallies this weekend like the opening of a thoughtful movie with two female leads: Don’t show up.”
