Tina Fey: “Bitch is the new black”

"Saturday Night Live" returns to the airwaves with a declaration that Hillary Clinton is a "bitch" who will "get stuff done."

Topics: Broadsheet, Love and Sex,

This past weekend, nearly two weeks after the writers’ strike ended, “Saturday Night Live” returned to the airwaves — but, far more excitingly, Tina Fey also returned to the Weekend Update desk. She brought her typical sauciness, declaring that Hillary Clinton is a bitch who will “get stuff done.” The video and transcript follow — enjoy.

TINA FEY: Maybe what bothers me the most is that people say that Hillary is a bitch. Let me say something about that: Yeah, she is. So am I and so is this one. [Points to Amy Poehler]

AMY POEHLER: Yeah, deal with it.

TINA FEY: You know what, bitches get stuff done. That’s why Catholic schools use nuns as teachers and not priests. Those nuns are mean old clams and they sleep on cots and they’re allowed to hit you. And at the end of the school year you hated those bitches but you knew the capital of Vermont. So, I’m saying it’s not too late Texas and Ohio, bitch is the new black!
