Hillary Clinton Losing All-Important Lena Dunham Vote
When Lena Dunham isn’t promoting books she wrote that have wacky molestation anecdotes, or flashing her dumper on Instagram, she’s busy advocating for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Confident with that kind of a rock solid ally in her pocket, it must have been a real jolt for Hillary to find out that Lena was at a fancy party talking all kinds of shit about how Hilary basically ran clean-up for Bill as he fondled, flashed, and fucked his way through his 1992 campaign. Via The New York Times:
But at an Upper East Side dinner party a few months back, Ms. Dunham expressed more conflicted feelings. She told the guests, at the Park Avenue apartment of Richard Plepler, the chief executive of HBO, that she was disturbed by how, in the 1990s, the Clintons and their allies discredited women who said they had had sexual encounters with or been sexually assaulted by former President Bill Clinton.
While I get full body satisfaction knowing that rich television executives have to listen to Lena Dunham talk about politics, I have to say she has a great point. The Clintons are about the closest thing we’ve got to The Underwoods in terms of a politically bloodthirsty couple whose power lust knows no bounds. Which is of course why Hilary will most likely land the nomination, because this is America where our flag should just be a gun under the Golden Arches with the slogan “The Devil You Know.” But what’s amazing is the idea that any one person – especially fucking Lena Dunham – can deliver a certain group of voters. Hillary’s looking for what drove the young people to the polls for Obama and she thinks she’s getting a two-fer with Dunham because as far as zoologists have been able to tell, it’s a she. But we all got burned on hope and change after ’08, and while we’re still trying to get it up for Bernie (March on Washington? But I’ve got all this shit on Netflix to watch…) I can confidently say nobody important gives a shit about Lena Dunham. Unless she’s willing to do this truffle shuffle thing at the beginning of every White House press conference. I might interrupt a Fargo binge for that.
