Tina Fey paid a surprise visit to SNL for the summer edition of "Weekend Update," and she did not disappoint.

"It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville," Fey, a University of Virginia graduate, said directly to the camera.

She spoke about President Trump's waffling on the evil of the white supremacist marchers. "I've seen 'Raiders of the Lost Ark,' and I wasn't confused by it....Nazis are always bad."

Fey joked that her hope is to see the white supremacist marchers coming to New York City on Saturday "get the ham salad kicked out of them by a bunch of drag queens."

The "30 Rock" star also took on white privilege, Ann Coulter and Republicans' favorite deflection, "Hillary's emails." Fey urged those looking to counteract the neo-Nazis to express support for targeted communities by visiting black- or Jewish-owned bakeries and buying cakes with American flags on them.

Her suggestion? "Yell" your frustrations into the cake. "Sheet caking is a grassroots movement," she explained to co-host Colin Jost.

"In conclusion, I really want to encourage all good, sane Americans to treat these rallies this weekend like the opening of a thoughtful movie with two female leads. Don't show up. Let these morons scream into the empty air. I love you, Charlottesville," Fey said.

Mic dropped.

If you'll excuse me, I have a screaming date with some vegan cake:
