Poor little Lena Dunham. It looks like she’s getting a taste of her own medicine. After constantly berating Republicans – even comparing them to Nazis – Dunham is claiming she receives “more hostility” for backing Hillary Clinton than she has ever received from conservatives.
“I have received more hostility for voting for a qualified female candidate than I have ever received anywhere from the American right wing…The fact that other members of the Democratic Party have spoken to me like I was an ill informed child for voting for someone who represents everything I think this country should be is outrageous.”
Dunham told Variety magazine that the final tipping point was when a Sanders supporter commented on a Clinton campaign picture on her Instagram account that, “Bernie Sanders has done more for feminism than Hillary Clinton has.” Considering everything we know about Hillary’s groping, sexually harassing husband, that commenter has a point.
Dunham, along with Chelsea Clinton and Latino activist/actress America Ferrera, attended a "rare non-fundraising event" for Hillary this past Sunday when these comments were made.
Ferrera tried to shoot down the narrative that young women weren’t inspired by Clinton and pointed to the slow and steady progress Clinton has made on several issues: “…I am fully aware that the words slow and steady are not exciting…“Especially in contrast to those calling for a revolution in this country. But many of us fled countries where dismantled systems made room for tyranny and violence. And so I would say, we don’t need a revolution in this country. We need an evolution in this country.”
All three women cited differences between Clinton and Sanders – warning that the stakes are too high to focus on a “single issue” and listed Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s death and vacancy on the Supreme Court, gun control, voting rights and of course – abortion – as the issues most important to them.
