NEW YORK >> Tina Fey has returned to “Weekend Update” on “Saturday Night Live” to discuss the violence surrounding a white nationalist rally near her alma mater’s campus in Charlottesville.

Fey sported a University of Virginia sweatshirt on the Aug. 17 episode of “Weekend Update: Summer Edition.”

She said it broke her heart to see “these evil forces” descend on Charlottesville.

She also criticized President Donald Trump for blaming “both sides” for the violence.

“Nazis are always bad. I don’t care what you say,” she said.

She noted that another white nationalist rally is planned for Aug. 19 in New York and joked that she hopes neo-Nazis in the city “get the ham salad kicked out of them by a bunch of drag queens.”

Fey co-hosted the “Weekend Update” segment from 2000 to 2006.
