Tina Fey Has a Message for the White, College-Educated Women Who Voted for Trump

If you’re a white, female, college-educated Trump supporter, Tina Fey has a message for you, and she isn’t holding back. The comedian and actress went live on Facebook with other celebrities during a fundraiser telethon with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and brought up the recent election during her interview.

Tina mentioned that the white, college-educated women that voted for Trump “can’t look away.”

“A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would maybe like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV. I would want to urge them to like—you can’t look away because it doesn’t affect you this minute, but it’s going to affect you eventually. Again, open two windows. Do watch HGTV, but [don’t] hide, do not turn our attention away from what is happening,” she said.

Fey went on to promise these women that she won’t look away and pretend Trump winning the election won’t affect her future either.

According to Us Weekly, Fey made a speech at the event about women’s rights and of course, decided to take a moment to make a few jabs about the Trump administration.

“Right now it’s not just about fighting for progress. Gains we’ve made over the last hundred years are under attack. Luckily, [Vice President] Mike Pence isn’t allowed to go down and shut down Planned Parenthood unless his wife goes with him. So, you know, if we can just keep Karen busy scrapbooking, we can all still get pap smears,” she said in her speech.

Damn, girl. Let it all out. The event, which took place March 31, was put on to stand up for civil rights, and all the proceeds went to protecting these rights. Sounds like Tina Fey used the event and her voice to do just that.
