Tina Fey discussed politics and late-night TV as she chatted with David Tennant on his aptly named podcast “David Tennant Does a Podcast With…”

Fey spoke to the former “Doctor Who” actor about the backlash her former “Saturday Night Live” “Weekend Update” co-anchor Jimmy Fallon received for interviewing Donald Trump.

She explained, “Poor Jimmy, that was sort of business as usual. You wouldn’t think, ‘Oh, you can’t have a presidential candidate on your talk show,’ but the world had changed. He’s since very much realized that.”

Fey also revisited her Sarah Palin parody during the chat, telling Tennant how “SNL” decided to have the then-vice presidential candidate on the show to respond.

The actress insisted, according to IndieWire: “I didn’t want him [boss Lorne Michaels] to have her on and I didn’t want to be in a two-shot with her, because I thought, ‘Well, that’s what they’ll show when I die.’ And they still might, but they’ll have to splice it.”

Fey added of whether she thinks shows like “SNL” can alter people’s opinion, “I don’t think that show can really sway people.”

“I think you can shine a light. You can help them articulate something they’re already feeling about a given person.”
