Tina Fey stopped by the Saturday Night Live studios for an early edition of “Weekend Update,” so she could share her feelings about the aftermath of the protest and counter-protest in Charlottesville, the hometown of her college, University of Virginia.
Of course, it’s hard to stay on topic when discussing some of our country’s most recent events without a conduit for your overflowing stress and rage. Enter Fey’s “sheet-caking” method of devouring an entire cake while talking about some of the most divisive subjects.
“Part of my hopes these neo-Nazis do try it in New York City,” Fey said, referencing planned hate marches around the country. “I hope they do try and get their ham salad kicked out of the by a bunch of drag queens. ‘Cause you know a drag queen still is? A six-foot-four black man.”
The rant, and we mean that in the best possible way, is lined with gems. From Fey calling white nationalists “chinless turds” we let “march through the streets with semi-automatic weapons,” even though peaceful protesters are Standing Rock were met with tear gas and rubber bullets, to a succinct dig at Anne Coulter, dubbing her “yard sale Barbie.”
Fey admits that this “sheet-caking” isn’t even a new coping mechanism. “Most of the women I know have been doing this once a week since the election,” she said. Watch the full clip, below.
