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!
