Tina Fey returned to the "Saturday Night Live" set for "Weekend Update Summer Edition" on Thursday, explaining that eating cake is more productive than trying to counter-protest white supremacy.
Fey, who graduated University of Virginia in Charlottesville, said it broke her heart to see "evil forces" descend on her former campus last weekend. Fey "felt sick" after hearing President Trump's remarks, in which he infamously said people on "many sides" were to blame.
"I've seen 'Raiders of the Lost Ark,'" she said. "And I wasn't confused by it... Nazis are always bad."
The comic powerhouse then explain that nine more neo-Nazi and white supremacy rallies are scheduled and urged them to attempt it in New York City.

How tragic that this is what we've come to. My prayers are w those in Charlottesville & every American who is the target of hate & violence.
Hell of a day for the President to forget how to tweet. https://t.co/ABffmwwH8D
sad and true. https://t.co/8I2daQFg65
We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!
I would like to speak out against these ignorant ass fools marching in Charlottesville. Believe it or not, they do not represent the majority of "white people". Most of "us" white folk (I'll say it again, I subscribe to the human race and we're all pink on the inside) are embarrassed of these small dicked privileged spoiled ass losers. Like these good people in this picture. Most people are good people, there are small groups of every sort that make it ugly for the rest of us. I apologize on behalf of these idiots. Maybe mommy and daddy should cut off their allowances.

My heart is in Charlottesville today, and with everyone made to feel unsafe in their country.
But the incitement of hatred that got us here is as real and condemnable as the white supremacists in our streets.
Message to the people of Charlottesville, from my mother, Leslie Cockburn, who is running for Congress in VA. #lesliecockburnforcongress #charlottesville www.lesliecockburnforcongress.com
I really don't know what to say...but this is terrorism. This is America TODAY...not 40 years ago, and your president is silent. Disgusting.
Even as we protect free speech and assembly, we must condemn hatred, violence and white supremacy. #Charlottesville
By the way, fuck these nazi motherfuckers. #Charlottesville
A woman just came up to me and said “I guess neo-Nazis are at least a diversion from nuclear annihilation” #whataworld #scary
Guess who will not be condemning the white supremacist rally in #Charlottesville
It's getting harder and harder to explain to my mom that everything is going to be ok.
This is shocking, but none of this is surprising. We all know we've been headed here for a while.
Genuine question: How do we react to this rally in a way that makes them feel it's a failure? It seems they feed on condemnation & anger.
That sounds reasonable ... oh wait https://t.co/xQYGKcDbXb
Come together as one: Even you losers-haters-Mexican rapists-"heroes" who were captured-women who are less than 10'… https://t.co/ENhMULItg1
Heartbreaking. I'm just...
God help us.
Where were the police!? Why were they not there to protect the public from these bigots #Charlottesville
These people are really upset. They should go back to their countries. #WeAreAllImmigrants https://t.co/qqWSk1Zv08
Heartbroken, upset and just so confused about the violence in Charlottesville....thinking of all the people who were affected 💔

"Part of me hopes that these neo-Nazis do try it in New York City. Like I hope they try it and get the ham salad kicked out of them by a bunch of drag queens," Fey said. "Cause you know what a drag queen still is? A 6'4 black man."
Fey also has ideas for a "grassroots movement" called "sheet-caking," which would presumably make the world safer for would-be counter-protestors.
"I would urge people this Saturday, instead of participating in the screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business you support. Maybe Jewish-run bakery, or an African-American run bakery, order a cake with the America flag on it... and just eat it," Fey said.
