New Obama Ad Compares First Vote to Losing Virginity
There is a new campaign ad from President Barack Obama out that features Lena Dunham, the creator of the HBO series ‘Girls.’ Dunham compares the first time she voted to when she lost her virginity.
‘Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody,’ Dunham says in the ad. ‘You want to do it with a great guy.’
In the ad, Dunham continues to say that your first time voting should be with ‘someone who really cares about and understands women; A guy who cares whether you get health insurance and specifically whether you get birth control. The consequences are huge.’
Towards the end of the ad, Dunham describes her experience at the voting booth by saying, ‘It was this line in the sand. Before, I was a girl. Now, I was a woman. I went to the polling station, I pulled back the curtain, I voted for Barack Obama.’
The references made by Dunham to virginity were called ‘disgusting’ by Republicans. Erick Erickson, the editor-in-chief of RedState, said, ‘If you need any further proof we live in a fallen world destined for hell fire, consider the number of people who have no problem with the President of the United States, via a campaign ad, ridiculing virgins and comparing sex to voting.’ Erickson went on to say that the only part of the ad that is honest is that supporters of Obama in 2008 ‘have been screwed — economically.’
Monica Crowley, an analyst for Fox News, said, Fox ‘Of the many sick things about this degrading Lena Dunham “lose your virginity to Barack” ad? The left thinks it’s “empowering” to women.’
John Nolte, from Breitbart News, said, ‘How could a president with two young, blossoming daughters release an ad as disgusting as this?’
