Julia Louis-Dreyfus took the stage to accept the award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a comedy series for her character in the HBO series “Veep.” She made a few references to the election joking that the Russians “did not hack” the votes for the award show then went after Trump’s executive order and called the “immigration ban” “un-American.”
“I am the daughter of an immigrant,” Louis-Dreyfus proclaimed. “My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France and I am an American patriot. I love this country and because I love this country I am horrified by its blemishes. ”
“And this immigrant ban is a blemish and it’s un-American,” she added.
