It’s no secret that Julia Louis-Dreyfus is Team Hillary Clinton. In a new video for NextGen Climate, the Emmy Award winner is reminding millennials to vote not only for the Democratic nominee but also to elect the right people to the U.S. Senate.

“Hi millennials. I’m Julia Louis-Dreyfus, your parents’ favorite performer from something called the television,” the “Veep” actress jokes in the clip. “I play a bombastic, woman-hating, narcissistic politician on my show, and it’s really super-fun to watch because, let’s face it, I’m extraordinarily talented. But it’s not a reality that any of us really wants.”

Louis-Dreyfus goes on to slam Donald Trump for his “pervy love of Putin,” his “fake colleges he can bankrupt for profit,” and for not believing in climate change since “it doesn’t have a grabbable p***y.”

Elevating the conversation, the actress continues by adding that voting for Clinton is not enough. “Senate Republicans have already vowed to obstruct her at every turn. It’s a congressional cock blockade,” she states.

“For President Clinton to keep this country moving forward, she’s going to need support in the Senate,” she adds. “So on November 8, slide out of those DMs, take a break from Pokémon Go, if that’s still a thing, and vote.”
