Tina Fey made a welcome return to SNL to take aim at Trump, Nazis and the events at Charlottesville.

A 'University of Virginia 92 graduate' Fey opened with, "I graduated a virgin and I still liked it.  That's how good the architecture is down there".

Sitting as a guest on the Weekend Update desk, she took aim at Trump.

"It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville and then our President Donald John Trump... I don't think people talk enough about what a stupid jackass name that is - Donald John.  It does not flow but whatever, he gets away with it because he's gorgeous."

She continued, "Donnie John comes out and he says that he condemns violence on many sides, on many sides.  And I'm feeling sick you know because I've seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn't confused by it.  Nazis are always bad."

Speaking about the nine alt right rallies planned for Saturday, including one in New York, she said, "Part of me hopes these neo Nazis do try it in New York City.  I hpe they try it 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 six foot four black man."
