Tina Fey was accepting the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at Wednesday morning’s 2016 Women in Entertainment breakfast, SNL alum and 30 Rock creator said she was going to avoid talking about the presidential election—“when I get written up in Breitbart, I want it to be because they’re mad that I’m making an all-female Hitler biopic”—but ultimately couldn’t help herself. “I have to say, I think the real reason that Hillary lost—and it’s the thing that people are afraid to talk about: not enough celebrity music videos urging people to vote,” Fey joked. “I just think if there had been, like, one more funny rap, or like, another Hamilton parody, or something.” Fey also worked a Donald Trump joke into her speech, telling the crowd that she’s been wondering lately, “What’s next for me? What is my role in this business going to be once nobody wants to grab me by the pussy anymore?”
