Lena Dunham is trying to create headlines again this week. She is blaming President Trump for her outrageous weight gain over the last couple of months.
“Donald Trump became president and I stopped being able to eat food,” the 30-year-old Girls actress revealed during an interview on Howard Stern‘s radio show on Monday.
Dunham, one of Hillary Clinton’s most committed celebrity surrogates during the campaign, said her friends were asking what she was doing to lose the weight.
“Everyone’s been asking like, ‘What have you been doing?’ And I’m like, ‘Try soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness and you, too, will lose weight,’” she explained.
“He said I was a B-list actor with no mojo,” she lamented, referencing Trump’s appearance on Fox and Friends last April where he called the actress a “B-actor” after the Golden Globe-winner promised to move to Canada if Trump won the White House.
Dunham, a rabid “third-way” feminist made public statements a couple months ago that she “wished she had an abortion.” She then later apologized for the statement.
Dunham is known for making crude and vile statements that are outside of the well established norms of liberalism. This one is no different.
