There are some celebrity feuds that come from out of nowhere, and others that leave you thinking: What took them so long?
The latest high-wattage battle surely falls into that latter category, this time involving unapologetic women’s rights advocate/actress/writer Lena Dunham and presidential candidate Donald Trump, who seems to be at war with a different woman (Rosie O’Donnell, Megyn Kelly, Carly Fiorina) every week.
Sure enough, Dunham appeared on “Watch What Happens: Live” on Monday (April 26) and told host Andy Cohen that she not only wants to be added to the long list of celebs threatening to move to Canada if Trump begins president — she wants to lead the exodus. “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” she insists. “I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”
Told of her comments on “Fox & Friends,” Trump (who recently had been reportedly trying to be nicer and “more presidential”), sarcastically said he’ll be re-doubling his efforts as a public service. “Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country,” he responds. “Now it’s much more important. In fact, I’ll immediately get off this call and start campaigning right now.”
Calling Dunham “a B actor [with] no mojo,” Trump elevated the feud. Of course, with Dunham’s “Girls” fans eager to have her back in the battle, we thought her fictional characters would as well. Below, a few imaginary smackdowns that the characters from the show might offer in defense of Dunham.
Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Donald Trump is very quick to judge. When people judge him, however, he’s not particularly receptive of their criticism.
Be an Ally
No matter how you feel about Dunham, it’s hard to argue with the fact that she is an ally: To women, to gays, to writers and young mothers. The ironic thing is that Donald Trump is running for a position that would seem to insist you be an ally to as many people as possible — but when you think about the majority of Trump’s public stances, it seems unlikely that the word “ally” would be one that would come to mind.
He’s got the look
In case you haven’t noticed, Donald Trump’s hair is a bit strange, and his skin is unnaturally orange. If the “Girls” crew were to take him down, we’re thinking they’d be able to come up with a few physical slams like this one.
Hear Me Roar
We’re not saying all the girls on “Girls” would vote for Hillary — but yeah, they probably would.
The Final Word
Ultimately, however, Dunham’s fictional characters would probably sum up their retort to Trump with three simple words.
