Tina Fey calls out white women who voted Trump

On Friday, during “Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU,” Tina Fey called out the white women who voted for Donald Trump in the most recent election.

In speaking with New York Civil Liberties Union executive director Donna Lieberman and ACLU deputy legal director Louise Melling, Fey talked about the responsibility that women have to help each other, something that she felt was lacking in those women who voted for Trump.

“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,” Fey said. “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,” she added. “[Don’t] turn attention away from what is happening.”

She also extended a plea to white women not to ignore the groups that are at the most risk in an America led by Donald Trump.

“I personally will make my own pledge as a college-educated white woman to not look away,” she said, “to not pretend that things are happening now won’t eventually affect me if we don’t put a stop to it.”
