    Julia Louis-Dreyfus Makes Up Some Alternate Facts During SAG Acceptance Speech

    "My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France and I am an American patriot," she said at the SAG Awards.

    Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus won the SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series on Sunday.

    The actor, who received the first award of the night, set the tone with a politically-charged speech that condemned President Trump's immigrant ban.

    "I am the daughter of an immigrant," she said. "My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France and I am an American patriot. Because I love this country I am horrified by its blemishes. The immigrant ban is a blemish and un-American."

    And she wouldn't be Julia Louis-Dreyfus if she didn't fit in a Trump joke.
