Tina Fey Thinks Donald Trump Is 'Great For Comedy'

She wants to go to there.

In 2008, Tina Fey proved that comedy and politics are pretty much indistinguishable. Now, as the 2016 primary fights heat up, she thinks the latest crop of candidates could prove just as entertaining.

At a Television Critics Association summer press tour event for her Netflix series "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," Fey said she believes Donald Trump's presidential bid will make particularly good joke fodder.

"It's great for comedy," she said at the Tuesday morning panel. “It’s one of those things where I’m sure ‘Saturday Night Live’ wishes they were on the air right now … next year at this time you’ll be doing a panel with just Darrell Hammond.”

Fey said she doesn't yet have "fully formed jokes” about the 2016 race, but if history teaches us anything, it's that Tina Fey may once again single-handedly alter the course of human events.
