Tina Fey returned to Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update desk on Thursday, where she railed on the violent white nationalist rally over the weekend at the University of Virigina, which is Fey's alma mater.

"It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville," Fey began, before calling out President Donald Trump for his refusal to openly condemn the violence committed by white supremacists at the demonstration. "[Trump] comes out and he says that he condemns violence on many sides, and I’m feeling sick because I’ve seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn’t confused by it. Nazis are always bad. I don’t care what you say."

LeBron James Says Trump ‘Made Hate Fashionable Again’ as Stars React to President’s Latest Charlottesville Remarks

16 August 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The immediate backlash President Trump faced on Tuesday only intensified overnight after he doubled down on his assertion that “both sides” were to blame for deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“There are two sides to a story,” Trump insisted on Tuesday, echoing the widely denounced comments he made Saturday, as the violence was unfolding in Virginia.

There were “a lot of bad people in the other group too,” he added in reference to the anti-racist protesters demonstrating against the rally, one of whom, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, was killed when a driver rammed his car into a group of the counter-protesters. »

John Legend, Clay Aiken and More Celebs Condemn President Trump's Charlottesville Press Conference

15 August 2017 5:23 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

President Donald Trump shocked many Americans with his press conference on Tuesday.

Trump held a press conference which was intended to be about infrastructure, but quickly devolved into him accusing "both sides" of violence in the weekend's white nationalist demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia, where protesters -- many bearing flaming torches, weapons, and Nazi symbols -- marched to protest the town's removal of a statue of Confederate Army general Robert E. Lee.

Trump was initially criticized for taking two days to condemn white supremacists, and hate groups such as the Kkk, in his remarks about the protests, where one woman was killed and 20 were injured after a 20-year-old man drove his car into a crowd, in an act of domestic terrorism.

Clay Aiken Says Donald Trump Didn't Call the Shots on Apprentice: 'He Didn't Fire Those People'

11 July 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Donald Trump famously declared, “You’re fired!” many times on his reality competition show The Apprentice. But former Celebrity Apprentice contestant Clay Aiken says there was a man behind the curtain.

“Trump didn’t decide who got fired on Apprentice; I mean, NBC made those decisions,” Aiken, 38, recently told Domecast, a podcast by North Carolina’s News & Observer. “It was very much, ‘I’m not a doctor, but I play one on TV.’ ”

Aiken appeared on the long-running show during Season 12 in 2012. He revealed to Domecast that then-host Trump wasn’t closely involved with matters of the competition.

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming Vows To Make America Bait Again With Goofy New Poster

30 June 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few film franchises hold a candle to Syfy’s long-running Sharknado series.

This is, after all, a collection of movies unapologetic in their commitment to delivering ludicrous action scenes and a storyline so bizarre – so bat-shit insane – that it’s arguably redefined the ‘so good, it’s bad’ cliché.

Birthed in 2013, the franchise is now on the verge of launching its fifth installment, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, which promises a whole new concoction of silly science and sharknadoes teeming with hungry fish. Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and his bionic wife, April (Tara Reid), are once again back in the thick of things, only this time, their escapades will take them on an international quest to rescue their young son, after he’s swept up by a traveling ‘nado.

Yes, the Sharknado series is about to go global, and as previous snippets have teased, the creative minds at Syfy are ready »
