The media love to analyze Girls. Somehow, despite its low viewership, Lena Dunham’s raunchy show about four millennial women finding their way in New York City captured the fancy of the journalistic world – from Jezebel to The New York Times. Now, in the wake of the final episode, writers and critics are “mourning the end of an era” with the loss of the “influential” HBO series. But, amidst all the ruminations on the show’s legacy, no one is asking: what does the journalist-hype for Girls say about the media?
In Sunday night’s episode of HBO’s Girls, “Full Disclosure,” Lena Dunham's character Hannah is still informing her close friends and family about her pregnancy. Her decision to keep the baby comes as shocking “news” to those she tells given that Hannah is, much like Dunham herself, strongly liberal and extremely pro-abortion - so much so that Dunham stated publicly that she wishes she had had an abortion.
On Sunday’s episode of HBO’s Girls, “Gummies,” Hannah (Lena Dunham) continues with her decision to keep her baby that she conceived after a very brief fling with a surf instructor while on a writing assignment. The seemingly pro-life storyline is a bit suspect given Dunham’s avid support of abortion and her wish that she could have had one herself (which she later apologized for while stating that she still wants to remove the “stigma” surrounding the controversial procedure.)
It is impossible to feel lukewarm about Lena Dunham. Like Hillary Clinton, the Girls actress and Lenny Letter co-founder inspires either deep revulsion or fawning acclaim. And that rift even extends to the liberal media world.
Thanks to the president, several stressed Hollywood stars are suffering from disordered eating. “Donald Trump is making me gain weight,” entertainment icon Barbra Streisand tweeted on March 5. “I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!”
Lena Dunham is a huge Planned Parenthood and abortion supporter. She was a Planned Parenthood abortionist for Halloween one year – and not in a bloody horror way, but in a “newsy, sexy, and cool” way. How much does Lena love abortion? Just in December she said, “I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.” Well, now she might get her wish, via her character Hannah on the HBO series Girls.
Having finally watched an episode of HBO’s Girls, I can now honestly say how inane, self-righteous, raunchy, and, quite honestly, stupid the show is first-hand. This is not something I say proudly, especially when it regards a topic something that should never be covered by Lena Dunham: women’s accusations of rape.
Donald Trump’s term in office is only four-weeks old but he’s got the liberal media and Hollywood losing their collective minds. It’s hard to keep track of all the nasty accusations they’ve made. The following is a collection of the 26 worst outbursts by liberal journalists and celebrities made against Trump’s presidency from his first four weeks in office.
Lena Dunham's HBO show Girls was back for its sixth and final (thank God!) season on Sunday night and the notoriously liberal show shockingly took aim at New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and not-so-shockingly subjected viewers to the eye crime of seeing Dunham naked.
Friday’s The View was even more unbearable to watch with the addition of feminist exhibitionist Lena Dunham to the panel. Of course Dunham talked about the election but not without condescendingly lecturing to the “white women” who voted for Trump to listen to their feminist elders who know better. Dunham also bashed these women as selfish and implied they had abusive male family members who made them tolerate Trump’s comments about women.
In a friendly chat with actress and left-wing activist Lena Dunham on Friday’s NBC Today, substitute co-host Maria Shriver lobbed one softball after another while promoting the final season of HBO’s Girls. Dunham, in turn, praised liberal young women for practicing “identity politics” and denounced the “xenophobia” of the Trump administration.
Media-beloved Lena Dunham is finally giving acting a rest. After six years, the controversial queen of militant feminism is wrapping up HBO’s sex-obsessed Girls, and we say, good riddance! In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter’s Lacey Rose, the cast, producers and HBO execs got down and dirty about the show.
