Lena Dunham just can’t seem to get over the fact that Donald Trump won the election and slammed him once again at the Glamour summit.

The 30-year-old actress appeared at the magazine’s “Women of The Year” live event on Monday in Los Angeles and was a speaker at the panel titled “Election 2016: What just happened?” Dunham told the audience that woman in this country are genuinely scared of having a “predator” in the White House.

The event, featuring a panel of woman including Dunham and New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, was captured on the magazine’s Facebook page.

“I think so many women are feeling scared, unsafe, ignored by the fact that somebody who is a predator, and is openly a predator, will soon be residing in the White House,” Dunham said. “That’s a very terrifying fact that we are all going to have to reckon with every single day, and it can’t be separated from his policy. It can’t be separated from his politics.” (RELATED: Lena Dunham Apologizes For ‘Narcissistic’ Attack On Odell Beckham Jr.)


“It can’t be separated from any issue, because it cuts to the heart of what he feels about human beings,” she added. “Women are human beings.”

Dunham was a very vocal supporter for Hillary Clinton, even hitting the campaign trail to get her elected. On Friday after Trump won the presidency, the actress shared a lengthy post on her “Lenny Letter” website bemoaning Clinton’s loss.

“At home I got in the shower and began to cry even harder,” Dunham wrote. “My boyfriend, who had already wept, watched me as I mumbled incoherently, clutching myself. It wasn’t supposed to go this way. It was supposed to be her job. She worked her whole life for the job. It’s her job.”
