Lena Dunham and America Ferrera make an appearance on stage together during the 2016 Democratic National Convention on Tuesday (July 26) at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Penn.
The actresses bashed Republican nominee Donald Trump in their speech.
“I’m Lena Dunham, and according to Donald Trump my body is probably like a two,” Lena said while introducing herself. America introduced herself by saying, “I’m America Ferrera and, according to Donald Trump, I’m probably a rapist.”
“We know what you’re all thinking,” Lena added. “Why should you care what some television celebrity has to say about politics?”
“We feel the same way. But he is the Republican nominee, so we need to talk about it,” America continued.
Lena talked about how she is a sexual assault survivor with a chronic reproductive illness and America discussed how she is the daughter of immigrants. Watch the full speech below!

America recently opened up about being the first Latina lead actress to win an Emmy for Ugly Betty.
“I wasn’t even aware of it until after the fact, until other people brought it to my attention, that I was the first Latina to win the Emmy,” America told Variety. “Which was not a big part of the story and I certainly didn’t even think of it that way. Looking back and thinking, ‘Oh wow, that barrier was broken when I won,’ that’s really special and regardless of what happens that can never be undone. I was so in a bubble that I wasn’t even aware of what that moment meant in a larger context for women like me in the industry.”
