Actress and comedian Tina Fey made a guest appearance on "Saturday Night Live" where she weighed in on the violence in Charlottesville and slammed President Donald Trump's controversial response.

Fey, who graduated from the University of Virginia in 1992, wore her school sweatshirt during the segment.

"I have nothing but fond memories of my time there," she told "Weekend Update" host Colin Jost, according to Daily Mail. "I graduated a virgin and I still liked it. That's how good the architecture is down there. So it broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville."

Fey then turned her attention to Trump.

"And then our president, Donald John Trump, and I don't think enough people talk about what a stupid, jacka*s name that is," she said. "Whatever, he gets away with it because he's gorgeous. Anyway, Donny John comes out and he says that he condemns violence 'on many sides.' … I'm feeling sick because, you know, I have seen 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' and I wasn't confused by it. No, Colin, Nazis are always bad, I don't care what you say."

Addressing reports that white nationalists are planning to hold more rallies this weekend, Fey joked about what might await them in New York City.

"Part of me hopes these neo-Nazis do try it in New York City and get the ham salad kicked out of them by a bunch of drag queens," she said. "Because you know what a drag queen still is? A 6 [foot] 4 [inch] black man."

Striking a more serious note, she added: "But, at the same time, I don't want any more good people to get hurt."

Fey then advised potential counter-protesters to stay away from the rallies and buy themselves a cake instead, before shoveling forkfuls of cake into her own mouth.

"The next time when you see a bunch of white boys in polo shirts screaming about taking our country back and you want to scream: 'It's not our country, we stole it,'" she said. "We stole from the Native Americans. And when they have a peaceful protest at Standing Rock we shoot at them with rubber bullets, [but] we let you chinless turds march the streets with semi-automatic weapons."

"In conclusion, I really want … to encourage all good, sane Americans to treat these rallies this weekend like the opening of a thoughtful movie with two female leads: Don’t show up," she joked, according to NBC News. "Let these morons scream into the empty air."

Trump has come under intense fire from Republicans and Democrats alike for insisting that the white nationalist demonstrators were not solely responsible for the violence in Charlottesville.

"I think there is blame on both sides," he said one day after labeling racism "evil," according to Politico. "You look at both sides. I think there's blame on both sides."

"It looked like they had some rough, bad people, neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them," he added. "But you had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest and very legally protest."

Former KKK leader David Duke applauded Trump's remarks on Twitter, writing: "Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists."
