A ‘Disappointed’ Lena Dunham Left Speaker Paul Ryan a Voicemail About Steve Bannon and Taped it
Lena Dunham is not happy that Donald Trump has named Breitbart’s Steve Bannon as his chief strategist and senior counsel. She posted a video to her Instagram account today in which she leaves Speaker Paul Ryan a voicemail, telling him, “I wanted to leave a message to let you know how disappointed so many of us are in the appointment of Steve Bannon.” She encourages her followers to do the same, leaving his phone number in her caption.
The Girls creator and star continues, “I’m not sure you’re really going to listen to this, but I hope you do, because 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 pointing an anti-Semitic white supremacist…” She gets cut off before she’s done leaving the message.
When the voicemail system asks her if she’s satisfied with the message she says, “No, I’m not actually satisfied with my recording.”
