In case you missed it (I did)...

I'm pretty much certain the target of this is do-nothing liberals (and Nazis).

This came across as incredibly tone-deaf to me. I get what she was trying to go for, but a woman literally died while protesting against white supremacists and Tina Fey's best/most clever response is "omg just eat some cake you guys! consume consume consume!" It reveals her position of privilege-- her response is sardonic and insincere because the tide of racist values gaining influence in our country will largely have no effect on her daily life (other than to serve as joke fodder). She doesn't have to worry about being assaulted in the street, or fired, or otherwise harassed or intimidated because of her race.

Eat your cake, Tina. The rest of us will continue to actually do something.
