Tina Fey has got strong opinions on far-right protests set to take place in the US this Saturday.

She took to SNL’s Weekend Update to express those opinions, and share ways to cope.

The star reflected on news that far-right protesters plan to take to the streets of US cities this weekend, in the fallout of Charlottesville last weekend.

“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. Because you know what a drag queen still is? A 6’4” black man,” Fey says in the video.

“But at the same time, I don’t want any more good people to get hurt. I know a lot of us are feeling anxious and asking ourselves, ‘What can I do? I’m just one person, what can I do?’

“I would urge people Saturday, instead of participating in the screaming matches and violence, find a local business you support, maybe a Jewish-run bakery or African-American run bakery,” she adds.

President Trump’s approval rating hit an all-time low in the wake of the Charlottesville riots, which left one woman dead.

An alt-right white nationalist who became the viral face of the weekend’s Charlottesville protests has since denied being an “angry racist”.

Hillary Clinton promptly spoke out against the protests and violence and said her heart was with “anyone made to feel unsafe in their country”.

The low approval rating for Trump also comes after his first 100 days were a disaster for LGBT+ people in the US.

He most recently banned transgender troops from serving openly in the US military, claiming that he was doing a “great favour” to the military.
