These are stressful times and Tina Fey has a solution to the question, "What can I do?" Stress-eat a cake, America!
Making a surprise appearance on "Weekend Update" segment with Colin Jost and Michael Che on "Saturday Night Live" last night (it's the summer edition, so it airs on Thursday), Fey dug into a layer cake to deal with her feelings about the violence in Charlottesville.
Wearing a University of Virginia sweatshirt (she graduated from UVA in 1992), Fey produced the cake and started digging in, saying: "It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville. "Then Donny John [Trump] comes out and says that he condemns violence 'on many sides.' On many sides, Colin [Jost]. And I'm feeling sick, 'cause you know, I've 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."
With more "alt-right" rallies planned for this Saturday, Fey urged people to vent their frustrations in a safe way: "Find a local business you support, maybe a Jewish-run bakery or an African American-run bakery, and order a cake with the American flag on it...and just eat it, Colin."
"Just eat it, Colin!" Can we get that on a T-shirt?
