Lena Dunham Hails ‘Political Strength’ of Liberal Women, Fears Trump ‘Xenophobia’


<p><em>More in the <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/kyle-drennen/2017/02/10/lena-dunham…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC&#39;s NewsBusters blog.</em></p>

<p>In a friendly chat with actress and left-wing activist Lena Dunham on Friday&rsquo;s NBC <em>Today</em>, substitute co-host Maria Shriver lobbed one softball after another while promoting the final season of HBO&rsquo;s <em>Girls</em>. Dunham, in turn, praised liberal young women for practicing &ldquo;identity politics&rdquo; and denounced the &ldquo;xenophobia&rdquo; of the Trump administration.</p>

<p>Shriver began the exchange by fawning over Dunham&rsquo;s explicit show coming to an end: &ldquo;So final season going in, you&rsquo;ve said a lot over the years. What do you want to say this year that you haven&#39;t been able to say?...what do you want it to have stood for, what do you want the headline of it to be?&rdquo;</p>
