While most of her peers in Hollywood were preparing for the 73rd Golden Globes, Lena Dunham spent the weekend stumping for Hillary Clinton and transforming herself into a walking billboard on the campaign trail in Iowa and New Hampshire.
After failing to receive any Golden Globe nominations this year, Dunham was given a consolation gift – a personal ride along and the reins to Clinton’s official Instagram account.
The Girls creator, who is one of Clinton’s most passionate supporters, shared images of her weekend with the Democratic presidential frontrunner on Instagram on both Clinton’s account and her own.
In her first post from Clinton’s account, Dunham shared an image of her wearing a a red, white and blue sweater dress.
“Hey y’all! I made it to New Hampshire and I’m thrilled to be taking over the HRC Instagram! Warning: I’m pretty focused on my outfits,” she captioned the photo.
She also posed for a photo with Clinton campaigner Abby Wambach of the U.S. women’s soccer team.
And she shared a snap of herself speaking with women in Portsmouth, NH.
Dunham also took to her own page throughout the weekend to share her numerous Hillary-themed outfits.

During one of her multiple stops in New Hampshire and Iowa over the weekend, Dunham made a feminist pitch to audiences of mostly young women about why they should vote for Clinton, according to The New York Times.
“I find her conviction very moving and her tenacity astounding,” Dunham told crowd inside an Iowa City coffee shop.
On whether or not she is voting for Clinton simply because she is a woman, Dunham was also quoted as saying, “This assumption is condescending at best and it is sharply misogynistic at worst.”
Dunham wrote in her 2014 memoir Not That Kind of Girl that she was raped when she was 19 by a man she insisted was a “resident conservative” named Barry while attending Oberlin College in Ohio.
After an exhaustive, month-long investigation into the claim by Breitbart’s John Nolte, Dunham’s allegation was debunked.
