"Donald Trump became president and I stopped being able to eat food. 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.'"

Go for zero baby! Work that starve! Another hundred pounds and then maybe a man will look at you.

The proper response to an asshole attaining power is anger, not "soul-crushing" anorexia-causing self-pity. This is the way the world works: assholes usually prevail.

Honey no matter how much weight you lose, Trump will not grab your pussy. I know it's heart-breaking. Get over it.

So now Trump is trying to kill jobs in the weight loss industry.
At least that's going to by my fake news headline.

I could stand to lose a few pounds. But full-on fasting doesn't sound fun.

Wait, is Donald Trump really that so called wonderful that he can cause miracles?

Not miracles like making the oceans recede, but actual measurable things like so called weight loss?

Top comment at the link: "I'm not a Trump supporter, but oh, the irony of Lena Dunham calling out another person's "personality disorder"!"

Maybe the woman is in denial about her popularity or her place in the world. She can blame it on Trump, but deep down she knows she's just a momentary blip.

Just some sketchy research shows that "Duck Dynasty" pulled about 11 MM viewers at its apex; "Girls" barely reached 1MM. And she wonders why Trump won?

What is she complaining about? She lost weight, weight she needed to lose. She should send Trump a thank you card and not be an ingrate.

You know, religious devotion is all well and good, but man. Jesus walked on water and cured the sick, raising people from the dead.

Lena Dunham's gods? Well, one of them was tossed into a van like a sack of potatoes. The other one ("I won!") is polluting the oceans right now and Iran treated him like she treats a cheesecake on Saturday night, or how Bill Clinton treats an intern.


I'm sorry, but worshipping false gods is always a let down. Maybe try Jesus? Heck, try Moses--Orthodox Judaism is pretty good. If you try Allah, go full burka. Please. For the rest of our sakes.

I don't know if Lena Dunham is an asshole...my general impression is that she is not. I could be wrong. However, Hollywood is populated almost entirely by assholes, so Ms. Dunham cannot be so fragile or naive as she pretends.

(I watched most of the first season of GIRLS and found it quite good...but I haven't been interested enough to watch any more of the show.)

Shame she isn't dead.

Harsh?

Well, we're expected to feel empathy for this frumpy, obnoxious, very rich girl who has no clue what life is like and whose parents catered to her every whim.

Would we empathize if, say, Paris Hilton whined that she couldn't handle stuff?

"He said I was a B-list actor with no mojo,” Dunham told Stern,"

B-list is generous.

Has she ever been in a production she didn't write herself? Doesn't seem to be a rush of people beating down the door now to get into the Lena Dunham business.

Ms. Althouse:

You picked the wrong story (underreported terrorism)o include a top-rated comment.

The ones on Dunham's fast at EW are gold.

Here's my pick:

"If she had her way, she would be in a burka soon enough - or beheaded. That might be the one positive thing about an Islamic caliphate - at least these leftists feminists would be shut up quickly enough. Then they'd be praying for some real men to show up and defend them, instead of the little pajama wearing sissy boys they're trying to create on our college campuses."

Fernandinande @10:45 AM:

Coffee spit-take upon reading that one.

Lance said...

Maybe she's lost weight because she can't get that job in the Clinton administration she was counting on and she needs to be skinny to get another TV gig.

tcrosse said...

A virtual Hillary Clinton presidency is what she needs. Run up a fake Hillary Inauguration, with all the inaugural hoo-hah. Record a bunch of Hillary speeches she would have made if the Russians hadn't stolen the election from her. Hillary would be happy to do so if the money was right. Make it a continuing series with weekly radio addresses, and a fake State of the Union every year. Sell it through Amazon. Then Lena and her crowd could play lets-pretend and get back to scarfing down pizzas and ice cream.

traditionalguy said...

Watching Lena is like watching NASCAR. Mostly boring, noisy drive arounds, but you can't take your eyes off because of the wrecks. She is almost a Benny Hill skit.

Bay Area Guy said...

In 4 decades, our independent female TV journalists went from:

Mary Tyler Moore => Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City)=> Lena Dunham

Reverse course! About Face! Jump ship!

hombre said...

The evidence mounts: The minions of the left are insane, at the least.

traditionalguy said...

But Lena warns us that DJT is a walking Personalilty Defect. And since it takes one to know one, that worries me. Maybe I can lose weight now.

AllenS said...

Nonsense. Once she announces the diet is over, she'll be 20 pounds heavier.

Good news buwaya! The dogs bark but the caravan moves on.

Michael said...

So, how strong a soul could she have had in the first place?

Quayle said...

Any world view and operating model that is destroyed as easily as Lena's, never was worth a plug nickel.

To me, it shows a failure of observation and imagination that the results of a democratic election could so rock one's entire existential and emotional foundation.

And she's supposed to be part of the imaginative and creative sect. What we see instead is actually quite brittle and fragile.

And in other news, applying more caulk, goo, and gloss yesterday we have Lena's preferred choice for President, saying that the future belongs to women.

That may be so, but it is a mathematical probability that it doesn't belong to aborting women.

Good news. Sincerely hope it improves situation for kids. Noticed opposition saying "test scores indicate charter schools made no difference in Detroit"

Left out of conversation is charter schools give kids opportunity to escape some of the violent public schools.

exiledonmainstreet said...

Why, it was just yesterday that leftist Trump haters were blaming him for making them fat. He was forcing them to devour late night pizzas and bowls of ice cream.

https://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/2016/11/18/call-trump/L2FVYYWOWhLk8JLE7JcElO/story.html

Bear in mind the "Trump 10" article was published in the Boston Globe on November 19. Think of that: liberals had managed to pack on 10 extra pounds in the space of 10 days. That's a hell of an achievement. It made me wonder if they had quit their jobs, moved their refrigerators next to their beds, and just laid there all day watching CNN, weeping and reaching over for another slice of banana creme pie. Gaining weight at that clip means they'll be in graves or they'll get stuck in their own front doors by the time they go to vote in the '18 midterms.

But now Dunham, who previously showed an ability to enjoy cake anywhere and anytime, even while sitting on the toliet, says Trump is making her waste away to a wisp. There's nothing that Trump can't do: he makes you fat, he makes you thin....

It was 94 to 6 and Chuck Schumer voted against her.

"Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's vote last week against confirming Elaine Chao as Transportation Secretary defines him. What a louse.

Chao is not only the least controversial pick among President Donald Trump's Cabinet choices. She is the wife of Schumer's Senate counterpart, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

How petty can one get? Schumer was one of only six Democrats who voted against confirming Chao. The others included party radicals such as Bernie Sanders of Vermont, New York's Kirsten Gillibrand, and New Jersey's Cory Booker."

Re Betsy DeVos -

This is TBD. K-12 education is still mainly a State matter (in most states the State has superceded localities in most things of significance re policy and funding).

On minority populations, these are disproportionately in States and localities under Democrat control. There is no way to force charters on them wholesale, as conservative State governments have tried hard and failed, or had only marginal success - in CA, WA, and NY. I don't see a conservative government in these places again. Though no doubt there will be some effect on the margins.

On charters, the results were in long ago - they do serve effectively to "rescue" some of those of low-SES (Socio-Economic Status) populations with the initiative to use them, mainly by creating an effective "tracking" system where the consensus of the formal system is dead-set against tracking - the enmity to tracking can be seen in, for instance, the old hostility to Jaime Escalante, and its been getting worse. You could not make the 1988 Edward Olmos movie today, or even show it to kids, it would be interpreted as racist, elitist and hostile to social justice.

On the other hand, this works for a minority of the minority and is not a general fix, and I am satisfied from my own old habit of analysis of the California achievement test series (a hobby of mine for a decade) that charters are of no objective value in medium-high SES populations. The bigger problem is a general cultural depravity in the population that structural changes will not repair.

Charters also tend to suffer from the state of ideology and professional standards in the teaching profession.

True, but Title IX isn't and that's what I want to see her go after first. I would agree that it's highly unlikely that she's going to have outsized impact on deep blue urban centers full of low-SES students, but she sure as hell can turn the faux-rape epidemic on it's nonconsensual ear.

buwaya said...

"She's a safe pick in a department that really doesn't matter."

She's a safe pick, but the department does matter.
It has a critical function in the management and maintenance of critical infrastructure and of the cost of doing business. This is one of those things that are too boring for popular controversialists but make a significant difference in economic growth and public convenience.

Its far more important to the US economy than the Title IX business.

Also, do something to insure people can express opinions without the never-ending threat of violence conservatives deal with on campuses.

There is a strong correlation between health and weight extremes. It seems that Dunham, if unwittingly, is the very model of health care reform. Positive progress.

To be fair, I doubt most of those high school kids doing mediocre work in public schools know who Lena Dunham is. This poor creature is as much a victim, in parallel, of the prevailing culture as they are.

dbp said...

I dream of a day when the government is so insignificant, only people with this particular hobby will care who is president.

Until that time, weight loss by Ms. Dunham is win-win. If we cannot prevail upon her to keep her clothes on, at least there will be less to loathe.

The Left does think this way. They can't just lose an election. No, it has to be the apocalypse. And they work themseves into a frenzy where every single action is the equivalent of the Jews being sent to the gas chambers (slight hyperbole on my part). I'm glad it worked out for her in that she lost a few pounds, but seriously. Get a grip.

I understand she did something funny with Girls but I don't know who Lena really is? She seems to be famous only because of a political opinion. An artist whose art is bad but people can't tell her? Instead they celebrate her? And then she dumps a lot emotional angst into media channels whenever she can. Taylor Swift does it a lot better.

n.n said...

weight loss by Ms. Dunham is win-win

Exactly. Trump's election was the catalyst for self-health care reform, the beginning of comprehensive health care reform, that is objectively affordable and widely available to every American. I wonder what other self-moderating, responsible behaviors we can expect to develop.

Perhaps, without being too cynical, or overtly critical, reproductive health care reform begins with replacing sex education with teaching biology, and the Pro-Choice quasi-religious philosophy with moral principles that can viably be reconciled.

Michael K said...

Charters also tend to suffer from the state of ideology and professional standards in the teaching profession.

My grandkids got into a charter this year and are much much happier in school. The teachers' enthusiasm is higher. Last year, my grandson was having trouble with the Common Core math problems. His fourth grade teacher told his mother she could not do the problems, either. She suggested his mother, who runs a successful home based business, teach him using traditional math.

They are in Orange County CA but I am already seeing a change.

My one reservation about DeVos is that she supports Common Core, Maybe that was political to avoid a clash with the supporters.

We'll see. This is much more important for inner city blacks.

Does she favor vouchers? I would like to see all parents have the opportunity to send their kids to parochial schools if they choose. My older daughter went to a Lutheran elementary school and my younger daughter attended a Catholic middle school. Both were expensive but well worth it--they were both well ahead of their public school counterparts. I sent my grandkids to a Christian school that had the best academic record in the county. And the moral teachings don't hurt, either.

Sure, but to be fair, her show Girls has an audience who, I assume, enjoy watching her show. There are people who sit down every week to watch her. She's an entertainer, whatever her other pretensions, and she seems to do a solid job of entertaining her audience. It's not a huge hit, sure, but there's still hundreds of thousands of people tuning in to watch, even what, five or six years in?

I'm not part of her target audience. But the beauty of entertainment today is that we're not all stuck watching the same shows because nothing else is on.

I remember once 30-odd years ago my kids asked me to help them with a math problem and I told them what the answer was. They said they knew that, any fool could see what the answer was; it was how to get it as prescribed by the textbook and their teacher had told them they had to do it that they could not understand.

Francisco D said...

@ The two Mikes,

My understanding of Common Core Math is that it is more about teaching "outside the box" thinking than teaching math.

I was sort of a math prodigy as a kid, in large part because I had an amazing teacher for half of grade school and half of high school. Mr. M helped me learn how to think in a disciplined manner. Thinking outside the box is important, but you need to have the cognitive skills first.

I know a lot of lefty artistic types. They are good at thinking outside the box in their fields, but the successful ones also have great discipline and well honed skills.
