Just get a whiff of the condescension here. While speaking to the ACLU, actress Tina Fey makes it clear that she thinks that white woman who voted for Trump are just sitting around making with the bon-bons while watching HGTV.
Actress-comedian Tina Fey called out college-educated, white female Donald Trump voters during a Friday night fundraiser for the American Civil Liberties Union, suggesting that those women who voted for Trump during November’s election might want to “forget” about the outcome and resume watching cable television.
During an interview at the star-studded ACLU benefit, the 46-year-old comedian and former Saturday Night Live cast member urged white women not to “look away” during Trump’s presidency,
“The thing that I kind of keep focusing on is the idea that we sort of need to hold the edges, that it’s sort of like a lot of this election was turned by kinda white college-educated women who would now maybe like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV and I would want to urge them, ‘You can’t look away,’” Fey said, according to the New York Post‘s Page Six.
“Because it doesn’t affect you this minute, but it’s going to affect you eventually,” she added.
And that’s the thing they can’t get. People voted for Trump not because they weren’t paying attention. It’s because they were. They were concerned about religious liberty. They were worried about federal funding of abortion. They were aware that weakness from the executive endangers us all.
Why on Earth do we support these people?
