Comedienne Tina Fey recently decided to call out white, college-educated white women who voted for Donald Trump:
“A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV. You can’t look away because it doesn’t affect you this minute, but it’s going to affect you eventually. I personally would like to make my own pledge to college-educated white women to not look away, not pretend that things that are happening now won’t eventually affect me if we don’t put a stop to it."
She made these remarks while trying to raise money for the American Civil Liberties Union during a live fundraiser on Facebook. Fey, most famous for mocking Sarah Palin during the 2008 Presidential cycle, was trying to make herself relevant after her comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot was named one of the biggest cinematic flops of last year. Or maybe she just actually believes that all women should vote in one certain way.
Why do liberals insist that women vote as the Democratic "elite" tell us to? However, Fey is touching on the fact that Hillary Clinton had a severe problem attracting white women voters. Some say that demographic cost her the election. Here's a thought: maybe it was the candidate's fault, not the voters'? Hillary Clinton was weak on foreign policy, rabidly pro-abortion, and failed to have the economic policies that would really help women in the workforce.
Having said that, Fey is uniquely suited to talk to white women since A) she is one, and B) Saturday Night Live, the vehicle that gave Fey her big break, seems to cater to white people. Over 90% of the hosts they select are white.
A comprehensive look at the racial makeup of four decades of hosting lineups reveals an overwhelming majority of white emcees — more than 90 percent of the total, including at least four 20-odd-episode seasons without a single host of color. And the disparity hasn’t eroded over time. The most recent of those all-white hosting blocks came in Season 36, just five years ago. That season boasts standout guest stints from Emma Stone, Scarlett Johansson, Helen Mirren and Justin Timberlake — but no people of color.
Oops! I guess white women aren't just sitting around watching HGTV after all. Until they get sick and tired of being lectured by condescending liberals, they're still watching Saturday Night Live.
