Notorious Liar @LenaDunham Claims She Can’t Eat Since Trump Got Elected

Posted on | February 7, 2017 | 1 Comment


The most important thing to understand about Lena Dunham is her dishonesty. She wrote a book in which she falsely claimed to have been sexually assaulted by a Republican when she was in college. She refused for months to admit her fabrication, nor did she apologize to the innocent person harmed by her deliberate (and politically motivated) defamation.

Lena Dunham lies routinely and habitually. Slander is her raison d’etre and deceit is her modus operandi. No honest person would willingly associate with Lena Dunham, and only bad people admire Lena Dunham. Therefore, we are not surprised by her latest lie:

Dunham stopped by Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show Monday morning and revealed that she has none other than Donald Trump to thank for her slim figure.
“Donald Trump became president and I stopped being able to eat food,” she told Stern after he complimented her look. “Everyone’s been asking like, ‘What have you been doing?’ And I’m like, ‘Try soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness and you, too, will lose weight.’”

(Hat-tip: Hogewash.) “Her slim figure”? Compared to what? Vogue magazine recently posted a 9-minute video interview with Lena Dunham at her Hollywood home (introducing us to her gay personal assistant who takes care of her poodle). Anyone can watch that video and conclude that Lena Dunham hasn’t been doing much time on the treadmill. Or to put it another way, Lena Dunham probably won’t be competing in triathlons anytime soon. She is still pudgy and pear-shaped. Her arms are still flabby and her butt is still wide. If she has lost weight since November, she must have been grossly overweight last year. However, it is not her Pillsbury Doughboy physique that makes Lena Dunham so odious and disreputable. Rather, it is her selfishness and the sadistic cruelty of her deliberate dishonesty. What she did to an innocent man in her 2014 book Not That Kind of Girl was unconscionable, as Michelle Malkin (like Dunham, an Oberlin alumna) explained at length in a 2015 column:

When John Nolte of the conservative website Breitbart investigated, he discovered that Dunham’s description didn’t match up with the real Barry. “In the end, Breitbart News could not find a Republican named Barry who attended Oberlin during Dunham’s time there who came anywhere close to matching her description of him,” Nolte reported. “In fact, we could not find anyone who remembered any Oberlin Republican who matched Dunham’s colorful description.” Wham: “Under scrutiny, Dunham’s rape story didn’t just fall apart; it evaporated into pixie dust and blew away.” Humiliated and facing a litigation nightmare, Random House paid the falsely accused College Republican’s legal fees after his lawyer complained. Stung and exposed, Dunham carped about conservative journalists who refused to cover up the real truth. She nursed her self-inflicted wounds by publishing a self-pitying diatribe on the liberal website Buzzfeed . . .

You can read the whole thing, if you’ve forgotten the sordid details. Someone who did what Lena Dunham did — cruelly defaming an innocent man, then falsely claiming to be the victim of honest journalists who helped clear this man’s name — is not merely untrustworthy, but evil.


What explains the wicked dishonesty of Lena Dunham? Here it is helpful to quote what Camille Paglia wrote about Andrea Dworkin:

Dworkin, like Kate Millet, has turned a garish history of mental instability into feminist grand opera. Dworkin publicly boasts of her bizarre multiple rapes, assaults, beatings, breakdowns and tacky traumas, as if her inability to cope with life were the patriarchy’s fault rather than her own. She pretends to be a daring truth-teller but never mentions her most obvious problem: food. Hence she is a hypocrite. Dworkin’s shrill, kvetching, solipsistic prose has a sloppy, squalling infantilism.
Dworkin, wallowing in misery, is a “type” that I recognize after twenty-two years of teaching. I call her The Girl with the Eternal Cold. This was the pudgy, clumsy, whiny child at summer camp who was always spilling her milk, dropping her lollipop in the dirt, getting a cramp on the hike, a stone in her shoe, a bee in her hair. In college, this type — pasty, bilious, and frumpy — is constantly sick from fall to spring. She coughs and sneezes on everyone, is never prepared with tissue and sits sniffling in class with a roll of toilet paper on her lap. She is the ultimate teacher’s pest, the morose, unlovable child who never got her mama’s approval and therefore demands attention at any price. Dworkin seized on feminism as a mask to conceal her bitterness at this tedious, banal family drama.

This familiar type — “the pudgy, clumsy, whiny child” who carries into adulthood a permanent grudge and seeks to make others suffer for her own self-inflicted misery — uses feminism as a rationale for her own vindictive cruelty, justifying her slander of the innocent. What part of “Thou shalt not bear false witness” does she not understand?

Despite her cruel slander of “Barry” the College Republican, however, Lena Dunham continues to be celebrated by liberals, who are so invested in the Feminist™ brand that they will embrace a purveyor of falsehood who deserves to be condemned and ostracized. Of course, Lena Dunham climbed onto the Women’s March bandwagon, employing first-person plural possessive pronouns in a profoundly dishonest Twitter message.


Lena Dunham is a childless 30-year-old woman who advocates abortion, so that her use of the phrases “our daughters” and “our sons” is a lie.

This phony first-person “our children” is a pet peeve of mine. Feminists who advocate baby-killing claim to care about “our children,” and yet none of them will lift a finger or spend a cent of her own money to help any actual children. Feminists not only hate babies, but they hate families — they hate mothers and fathers — and never miss a chance to condemn marriage as an institution of oppressive heteropatriarchy.

Well, “patriarchy” is just another word for paying the bills, and HBO hasn’t offered me a multimillion-dollar deal to create a series called Lying Feminist Trolls, so paying the bills for “our children” requires me to invoke the Five Most Important Words in the English Language:
