    Not only did the actors speak highly about the United States' first female presidential nominee of a major party, but Dunham and Ferrera also took the opportunity to really go in on Donald Trump.

    "I am a pro-choice, feminist sexual assault survivor with a chronic reproductive illness. Donald Trump and his party think I should be punished for exercising my constitutional rights," Dunham continued.

    "His rhetoric about about women takes us back to a time where we were meant to be beautiful and silent. Meanwhile, 22 years ago, Hillary Clinton declared that women’s rights are human rights."

    Ferrera also chimed in, "Donald’s not making America great again. He’s making America hate again. And the vast majority of us, we cannot afford to see his vision of America come to be."

    Their audience seemed pretty into it, to say the least.
