Comedian and actress Tina Fey on Friday called out the white college-educated women who voted for President Donald Trump at an ACLU fundraiser in New York, CNN reports.

"The thing that I kinda keep focusing on is the idea that we sort of need to hold the edges, that it's sort of like a lot of this election was turned by kinda white college-educated women who would now maybe like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV and I would want to urge them to like 'You can't look away,'” Fey said.

"Because it doesn't affect you this minute but it's going to affect you eventually.”

Forty-five percent of college-educated white women voted for Trump in the November elections, with Hillary Clinton claiming 52 percent of that demographic. The figure was key as Clinton did not do much better than Barack Obama did in 2008 in that group but was expected to.  

Fey also mocked Trump and Vice President Mike Pence at the event on women’s rights issues.

"Right now it's now just about fighting for progress," Fey said. "Gains we've made over the last hundred years are under attack. Luckily, Mike Pence isn't allowed to go down and shut down Planned Parenthood unless his wife goes with him. So, you know, if we can just keep Karen busy scrapbooking, we can all still get pap smears."
