The 5 Best Lines From Lena & America’s Anti-Trump DNC Speech

While FLOTUS refused to mention Trump by name in her insanely moving Democratic National Convention speech, Lena Dunham and America Ferrara took an alternate—but no less powerful—approach last night. (In other words, these ladies were *not* messing around.) Here, five of our favourite parts

1. “Hi, I’m Lena Dunham, and according to Donald Trump, my body is probably like a 2. And I’m America Ferrara, and according to Donald Trump, I’m probably a rapist.”

2. “The unfunny fact is that this man would have you believe that our differences are more important than what unites us.” —Lena

3. “I am the proud child of Honduran immigrants. I am profoundly grateful for the access and opportunity that exists in this extraordinary nation. I was educated in public school, my talents were nurtured through public arts programs, and you know what? Occasionally I needed a free meal to get through the school day.” —America

4. “I am a pro-choice, feminist, sexual assault survivor with a chronic reproductive illness. Donald Trump and his party think I should be punished for exercising my constitutional rights. His rhetoric about women takes us back to a time when we were meant to be beautiful and silent. Meanwhile, 22 years ago, Hillary Clinton declared that women’s rights are human rights. And she made it possible for my fellow sexual assault survivors in my home state of New York to have access to safe, immediate care in any emergency room.” —Lena

5. “Donald is not making America great again. He’s making America hate again.” —America
