Whenever Lena Dunham comes up in our newsfeed, you know it’s going to be a special kinda of stupid. Funny, yes. Stupid, always. Tis to be expected with all things Dunham. So what flavor of stupid is Chef Dunham serving today? Well it’s feminist related, so no surprise there. Apparently only Hillary is getting attacked this election cycle…and only because she (in theory) has a vagina.
Hillary Clinton supporter Lena Dunham says she is “used to the intense scrutiny and some of the kind of hatred we’ve received around [‘Girls’], but . . . every day Hillary is campaigning against a set of odds that none of the other candidates can even imagine.”
Dunham also told us, “The other candidates are white men and they cannot understand, even if they can understand it intellectually . . . for what it’s like to be under that kind of attack, and I’m so impressed by the way she continues to soldier forth.”
Yes, that’s right snowflake. Not only is Hillary the only presidential candidate who is getting attacked, but all the other white men in the race not only aren’t…they have no idea what it’s like to be attacked. In politics. Nope, no white men, in politics, are ever attacked. It has never happened. Not once. Certainly not this cycle. Presdential candidates attacking each other? Just the women are getting attacked. Obviously. The men? NO. MALE PRIVLEGE has asserted itself once again. It’s shielding them from all things danger.
I’m sorry for the shameless sarcasm here. But… psyche, just kidding. Trigger warning: more sarcasm.
Ted Cruz doesn’t know what it’s like to be attacked. This article linked right there? It’s a hit piece about how Ted Cruz kissing his young daughter is rape culture. But that’s not an attack. No, no, that’s just run of the mill stuff right there. Fathers kissing their daughters = rape is routine. Also, Donald Trump who we’ll discuss in the next paragraph? He’s been attacking Ted Cruz. Yeah, the men are attacking the men. Should someone should tell Dunham about this?
Donald Trump isn’t getting attacked at all. The people in Mexico, for example, are not burning his effigy. Nope. Didn’t happen. Except… yeah, okay, it happened just a little bit. But maybe Dunham doesn’t know that Donald Trump’s effigy has ben lit with fire. Maybe effigy burning doesn’t fall in the “attack” column for Dunham, the woman best known for eating cake on a toilet. While naked. Those be mad skillz, yo.
Let’s move on to our favorite candidate of election 2016…
John Kasich. He isn’t getting attacked. Ok, in this case it’s us attacking him, but still. We only attacked John Kasich because he’s got a baby bird haircut. Well… okay, and because he’s got zero chance of winning the election but stays in anyway. This makes him an egotistical crapweasel. Did you know his dad was a mailman? True story. Plus…
In conclusion of this sarcastic post, here’s a little not-sarcasm: Lena Dunham is a turdnugget. All politicians get attacked, Lena. Sometimes by other politicians. Often by the media. It’s an onslaught of constant attack. Even if you’re a white man.
