"Order a cake with an American flag on it, and just eat it".

The former "Weekend Update" anchor dropped by the show's second summer episode and - while shoving her face with cake - blasted President Trump for his comments about the "Unite the Right" Charlottesville rally last weekend and implored "good, sane Americans" not to take part in any additional rallies.

During a surprise appearance on the show, Fey said of her alma mater, "It's a attractive school and I have nothing but fond memories of my time there", despite the fact that she "graduated a virgin".

"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.

Fey, who joined hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, recommended viewers opt not to attend any of the nine additional rallies planned for this weekend.

"I'm feeling sick because, you know, I have seen "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and I wasn't confused by it", she added.

And, with her mouth full of frosting, she seemed to capture the frustration of many Americans in the past week.

"The next time you see a bunch of white guys in polo shirts screaming about taking our country back - and you wanna scream, 'It's not our country".

She also criticized some right-wing responses to the Charlottesville violence: "Who drove the vehicle into the crowd, Hillary's emails?"

"Let these morons scream into the empty air", she said, as she finished her cake.

"I say, where's Paul Ryan in all this?" "Racism is bad @realDonaldTrump, you p*ssy!" "You're supposed to be the cool, young congressman, but you don't know how to (at) somebody on Twitter", she said.

Fey then slammed Trump for his defense of the Confederate statues.

This led to a visit by none other than slave-owning founding fathers George Washington and Thomas Jefferson (played by "SNL" alums Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers), who pointed out that unlike General Lee - whose chief accomplishment was losing the Civil War - they actually did stuff, pointing to the Declaration of Independence and winning the Revolutionary War.

Current cast member Kenan Thompson made an appearance as astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, in honor of next Monday's solar eclipse.
