Lena Dunham Just Left Paul Ryan A Voicemail. Here’s What She Said.
Lena Dunham left Paul Ryan a voicemail saying she was “disappointed” that Donald Trump had named Steve Bannon as his chief strategist and senior counsel.
“I wanted to leave a message to let you know how disappointed so many of us are in the appointment of Steve Bannon,” Dunham said in the voicemail message Monday, which she later posted on Instagram. “I’m not sure you’re really going to listen to this, but I hope you do.”
“I want to let you know that as a woman, as a Jew, as a person who cares about other human beings, people of color, the idea of appointing an anti-Semitic white supremacist…”
The voicemail then cut Dunham off.
“No, I’m not actually satisfied with my recording.”
Along with her video, Dunham published Ryan’s office number and encouraged her three million followers to call him as well.
Though the “Girls” creator threatened to leave the country if Trump won, she later rescinded that claim. (RELATED: Lena Dunham Is NOT Leaving The Country)
“For those demanding I move to Canada based on something I said when this man seemed like a steak salesman with a long shot at the presidency: stay busy reveling in your new regime,” Dunham wrote on Instagram post last Friday.
“I will go many places in my lifetime, surrounded by kindreds on a mission to spread justice and light. I can’t wait for all of this, and for the change to come, as we use what we’ve been given to protect those who can’t protect themselves. What are you living for?”
