Comedienne Tina Fey has hit out at Donald Trump and the Neo-Nazis involved in last weekend's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The former Saturday Night Live star, who studied at the University Of Virginia, shared her horror over President Trump's response to the clashes between White nationalists and anti-fascist protesters, which resulted in the death of a woman.

Ahead of further anticipated protests this weekend, Fey urged her fellow Americans to stay home and eat cake as she appeared on SNL's Weekend Update on Thursday night.

Addressing the Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists, she explained: "It's not our country. We stole it from Native Americans. When they have a peaceful protest at Standing Rock we shoot at them with rubber bullets but we let you chinless turds march in the streets with semi-automatic weapons."

The actress and writer also criticised Trump's insistence that "both sides" were to blame, with the President claiming there were some "very fine" people on both sides.

She said: "I've seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn't confused by it. Nazis are always bad. I don't care what you say."

During her segment, Fey tucked into a huge piece of cake and urged Americans to do the same: "This Saturday, instead of participating in the screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business you support, maybe a Jewish-run bakery or an African American-run bakery.

"Order a cake with the American flag on it, like this one (she gestures), and just eat it."
