Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention came with a powerful speech from Lena Dunham and America Ferrera, who shared the stage to very pointedly denounce Trump's hate speech last night.

"Hi. I'm Lena Dunham, and according to Donald Trump, my body is probably, like, a 2."

"And I'm America Ferrera, and according to Donald Trump, I'm probably a rapist."

"But America, you're not Mexican," Dunham remarked.

"And President Obama isn't Kenyan, Lena, but that doesn't stop Donald," Ferrera said.

"We know what you're all thinking," Dunham said. "Why should you care what some television celebrity has to say about politics?"

"And we feel the same way," Ferrera continued. "But he is the Republican nominee so we need to talk about it."

The duo went on to address the ideals that Clinton embodies, and how Trump has spoken out against immigrants, pro-choice advocates, women, and other communities in the course of his campaign.

"Look," America said, "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."
