Lena Dunham Is Losing Weight Thanks to Donald Trump

Lena Dunham is that girl at a party who no one really wants to talk to, but then you feel bad for her so you start talking to her. Then she doesn’t shut up and by the end of the night she’s naked and you just regret ever saying “hi.”

In her latest attempt to badmouth Donald Trump and talk about her body, Dunham shared with Howard Stern that she hasn’t been able to eat since Trump became president.

“Donald Trump became president and I stopped being able to eat food,” she told Stern after he complimented her look. “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.’”

I always thought soul-crushing pain, devastation, and hopelessness caused you to eat more. That’s what movies taught me when a girl gets her heart broken.

“Here’s the funny thing. Of course, it’s a mistake, but we’re talking about him like he’s a person who is operating in a sane way, we’re talking about him like a person who doesn’t have a personality disorder,” she responded.

Well, Lena would know.

Dunham, who famously pledged a move to Canada if Trump won the election, also clarified those comments to Stern, saying that, at the time, a Trump win “seemed like an impossible joke” that “would never happen. I was like, ‘The most qualified candidate we’ve ever had is running against a steak salesman. We’re going to be fine.’”

Got that, everyone? If you want to get out of doing something that you said you would do, just claim it was all a big joke. I promise to watch Girls if Lena Dunham doesn’t have a meltdown in every episode.
