This isn’t the Home and Garden Network — this is your life.

 Tina Fey called out white women who voted for Donald Trump, urging them to not look away just because some of the current political issues don’t immediately affect them.

“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,” Fey said during the “Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU” on Friday night.

“I would want to urge them to like, ‘You can’t look away’ because it doesn’t affect you this minute, but it’s going to affect you eventually.”
The comments stemmed from the “SNL” alum’s discussion with New York Civil Liberties Union executive director Donna Lieberman and ACLU deputy legal director Louise Melling about women’s rights and fighting for protection of those rights under the current administration.

She openly discussed the future of women’s reproductive rights with the two ACLU directors and said as a college educated women herself, she pledges not to look away — things will eventually affect this group if they don’t put a stop to it.

“Again, open two windows. Do watch HGTV,” she continued. “But to not turn our attention away from what is happening.”

Fey famously portrayed former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin on “SNL” and also served as the anchor of “Weekend Update.”
