“A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would maybe like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV, and I would want to urge them, you cant look away,” Fey said. “Because it doesnt affect you this minute, but its going to affect you eventually.”

Fey followed up those thoughts at the end of the interview, returning to the topic of vigilance and awareness, making her own pledge (she herself being a college-educated white woman) to not ignore what’s going on.

“I personally will make my own pledge to college-educated white women to not look away, and to not pretend that things that are happening now wont eventually affect me if we dont put a stop to it,” she said.
