Trump Bashing: Why Should You Care About Celebrity Views on National Politics?

Actress and author Lena Dunham has never been shy about sharing her opinion, so it shouldn’t be surprising that on the night the first woman was nominated to lead a major American political party in a presidential election, she and actress America Ferrara took the opportunity to tell Donald Trump exactly how they feel about his campaign to date, as well as his candidacy.

“I’m Lena Dunham, and according to Donald, my body is ‘probably, like, a two,’” she began. Ferrara added that according to him, she’s probably a rapist. When Dunham pointed out that Ferrara isn’t even Mexican, she replied, “and President Obama isn’t Kenyan, but that doesn’t stop Donald.”

“We know what you’re all thinking,” Dunham continued, “why should you care what some television celebrity has to say about politics?”

“We feel the same way,” Ferrara replied, “but he is the GOP nominee, so we have to talk about it.”

“Donald Trump and his party think I should be punished for exercising my constitutional rights,” Dunham added. “Whereas 22 years ago, Hillary Clinton declared that womens’ rights are human rights.”

“I am profoundly grateful for the access and opportunity that exists in this extraordinary nation,” Ferrera, a child of immigrants, noted. “Donald is not making America great again — he is making America hate again.”
