Today, in stuff nobody is asking for:

More from the Hollywood Reporter:

Dunham has to get her surroundings set first. “We will for sure read it,” Dunham tells The Hollywood Reporter.“It’s something where I need to get into bed with a hot water bottle and read it; it’s not like a casual train read for me.”

The reason why she craves distraction-free time to consume Clinton’s campaign tome, which moved more than 300,000 copies in its first week across all platforms, is because Dunham stumped hard for the Democratic nominee. “After you work on the campaign for 18 months and invest yourself in the way we did, it’s something you want to read when you have time to reflect on it.”

When queried on whether the book would make a good TV or film adaptation, Dunham jokes, “Great question slash suggestion,” with [Lenny Letter partner Jenni] Konner adding, “Call HBO; we’ll have to see if Danny Strong is available.” Strong penned 2012’s Game Change about Sarah Palin joining the John McCain 2008 presidential campaign.

OK, so this is not necessarily something that’s happening. Not yet, anyway. But if it does … we’d better brace ourselves. Hillary Clinton is awful. Her memoir is awful. Lena Dunham is awful. We’ll have officially hit the trifecta of awful.

Fair enough. After all, you can’t put a price on schadenfreude.



Hillary-ous! Lena Dunham’s auction item proves ‘liberal tears have a monetary value’
