Watch Lena Dunham Defend ‘The Nation’s Baddest Grandmother’ Hillary Clinton With a Rap Video
Lena Dunham has definitely made it known that she supports Hillary Clinton, but she hadn’t done it with a rap (sorry, ‘rapped music’) video yet, so she’s gifted us with it now, and we’re extremely glad she did. With the help of broadway treasure Cynthia Erivo and radio personality Charlemagne Tha God, Dunham as MC Pantsuit raps about her favorite candidate.
Dunham begins, saying: “I get upset when people say that Hillary needs to smile / She’s a strong ass f—ing person / Couldn’t even walk a mile in the heels of this woman / Had to fight her life defending everything she does to the left and to the right.”
Erivo sings simply, “I can’t believe she’s in the race with this guy / Let’s get out and vote or everybody might die.”
Then, Dunham takes off her pantsuit, “to reveal a more sensual pantsuit/ Cause that’s what you do for the candidate you love.”
