Tina Fey Slams Trump During Return to SNL's Weekend Update - Full Video!

Tina Fey just made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live‘s summer edition of Weekend Update to slam Donald Trump and his stance on the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

The former SNL star, who actually attended the University of Virginia, joked about Trump‘s full name before giving a suggestion to viewers.

“It broke my heart to see these evil forces decsend upon Charlottesville, then our president, Donald John Trump — which I don’t think people talk enough about what a stupid, jackass name that is. Donald John? Whatever! He gets away with it because he’s gorgeous,” Tina said. “Anyway, Donny John comes out and he says that he condemns violence on many sides, and I’m feeling sick because I’ve seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn’t confused by it. Nazis are always bad. I don’t care what you say.”

“There’s nine more alt-right rallies planned around the country this Saturday, including one in New York City in Washington Square Park,” she continued. “Part of me hopes these neo-Nazis do try it and get the ham salad kicked out of them by a bunch of drag queens, because you know what a drag queen still is? A six-foot-four black man.”

“I don’t want any more good people to get hurt,” Tina said. “And I know a lot of us are feeling anxious and asking ourselves, ‘What can I do?’ So I would urge people this Saturday instead of participating in these screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business that you support — maybe a Jewish-run bakery, or an African-American-run bakery. Order a cake with the American flag on it like this one and just eat it, Colin.”

Tina continued the rest of her appearance while digging into the cake!

Bill Hader Plays Anthony Scaramucci on Summer Edition of 'SNL Weekend Update'

The brief, 10 day run of Anthony Scaramucci‘s job as White House Communications Director happened over the summer, so Saturday Night Live wasn’t able to cover his antics… but luckily there is the Weekend Update Summer Edition special!

Bill Hader popped up as Scaramucci during the episode that aired on Thursday night (August 10) and the “Mooch” says he has no regrets about his short run.

“The Mooch has no regrets, baby,” Hader said as Mooch. “All I did was sell my company, miss the birth of my child and ruin my entire reputation, all to be king of Idiot Mountain for 11 days.”

“You know how you miss me, I’m like human cocaine,” he also said during the sketch. “You got a little bump of me, I made you feel excited, but I was out of your system too quick. And now that I’m gone you’re all depressed, you’re edgy and you’re trying to figure out how to score some more Scara-mooch!”
