Funny or Die

Lena Dunham is showing her support for Hillary Clinton with an amusing Funny or Die rap music video titled “Sensual Pantsuit Anthem.” Calling herself MC Pantsuit and wearing a red ensemble, the “Girls” creator defends “the nation’s baddest grandmother” and raps about Clinton’s  accomplishments. Singer and actress Cynthia Erivo and Charlamagne tha God are also featured in the clip.

“Worked harder than her man did, still saw her grandkid, and people have the nerve to ask her what her plan is?,” raps Lena. “Her plan is to win against hatred and slur. Break it down in three words, I’m. With. Her.”

She also mentions Donald Trump by saying that Clinton is “going up against a dude who’s a climate change denier” and rapping, “I can’t believe she’s in the race with this guy. Let’s get out and vote or everybody might die.”

Towards the end of the clip, Dunham decides to shed some skin and strip off her pantsuit, because according to her “that’s what you do for the candidate you love.” She then asks Erivo to also take hers off but she replies, “No, I’m good.”
