Lena Dunham Takes Her Support for Hillary Clinton to a Whole 'Nother Level With Rap Music …

Lena Dunham‘s love for Hillary Clinton knows no bounds. 

It’s well known that the Girls star is one of the Democratic nominee’s most outspoken celebrity advocates, and in her just-released partnership with Funny or Die, Dunham proved she’ll do just about anything to support her. In the viral video, the actress channels her inner hip hop artist, MC Pantsuit, as she raps, dances and strips down to all the reasons HRC deserves the top spot at the White House. 

Referring to Clinton as “the nation’s baddest grandmother,” Dunham shakes her groove thing in a red pantsuit that quickly comes off to reveal a two-piece bikini version. She raps, “You’ve got to show your whole body / Everything that you’ve got for the candidate you love.”

Like we said, knows no bounds.

But as it turns out, the 30-year-old’s latest attempt to get Americans in polling centers was created to parody Hollywood’s empty political activism. 

In an interview with Vulture, Lena says, “I liked the idea of a well-meaning, ridiculous white girl who thinks she’s helping the election by exposing her body and writing thoughtless rap music,” calling the character a mix of “Iggy Azalea meets BeBe Rexha.”

Dunham adds, “We have so many of these celebrity straight-to-camera addresses… Some of these PSAs are well meaning and they come from a place of deeply not wanting Donald Trump to be president, but they don’t quite work. I feel like it’s really important to unify and to not think your celebrity voice is going to do the job all on its own. This is in some way a commentary on that.”

Looks like she got the message across!
