Tina Fey Trump News
Tina Fey took a shot at white college-educated women who voted for
U.S. President Donald Trump.
During a celebrity Facebook Live fundraiser for the American Civil Liberties Union the actress said:
“A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV. You can’t look away because it doesn’t affect you this minute, but it’s going to affect you eventually.”
The SNL alum made the comments during a conversation that
was mostly about women’s reproductive rights with Donna Lieberman, executive director of the ACLU in New York, and Louise Melling, the organization’s deputy legal director.
At the end of the brief interview, Fey added:
“I personally would like to make my own pledge to college-educated white women to not look away, not pretend that things that are happening now won’t eventually affect me if we don’t put a stop to it.”
It’s not the first time Fey has commented on the November elections.
During an interview with David Letterman in December she lamented, “I definitely came out of last month feeling misogyny is as much more real than two years ago. But the thing I worry about [more] than actual human interaction is the Internet. Because that’s just despicable: people just being able to be awful at each other without having to be in the same room.”
She continued: “It’s metastasizing now, thanks to our glorious
president-elect who can’t muster the dignity of a seventh-grader.”
But Trump wasn’t the only member of the administration to be Fey prey. She also made a jab at Vice President Mike Pence.
“Luckily, Mike Pence isn’t allowed to go down and shut Planned Parenthood unless his wife goes with him. So, if we can just keep Karen busy scrapbooking, we can all still get Pap smears.”
Lastly, we’ll end with this additional notable moment from Fey’s monologue:
“Did you know that women still only make one ‘Ghostbusters’ movie to every two made by men? And men average ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ for every ‘Ocean’s Eight’ that goes to women. That is simply unacceptable.”
