Of all the celebrities threatening to move to Canada if Trump won, there was one we all hoped was serious: Lena Dunham.
Even Trump himself said that it would be a “great great” thing for our country when he heard the news.
The HBO star and Hillary Clinton supporter, of course, never followed through on that promise, and even went as far as to attack those who asked her why she hadn’t left: “And for those demanding I move to Canada based on something I said when this man seemed like a steak salesman with a long shot at the presidency: stay busy reveling in your new regime,” she said the Friday after Trump’s win.
It would’ve been a wonderful unintentional gift from Donald Trump to the American public had she left, but it looks like the Trump presidency is actually helping Dunham after all.
According to Twitchy:
Dunham recently told Howard Stern that the “soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness” that came from Clinton’s defeat was responsible for her weight loss — something that shouldn’t be hard to fact check, since she can’t seem to stop appearing naked, even when pitching Obamacare.
“Donald Trump became president and I stopped being able to eat food,” she told Stern.
Time and time again, Trump manages to accomplish the impossible.
It’s certainly one unintended consequence of the Trump presidency: his first month in that no one can complain about. Will we be hearing about the miraculous results of the Trump Diet a few years from now?
Only time will tell…
