Issa Rae walked the carpet at the Golden Globes looking absolutely flawless, but the nominee had other things on her mind at the awards ceremony.
The Insecure star, who is nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Comedy or Musical, opened up about Donald Trump’s impending presidency and the terrifying normalization of our president-elect.
“Every single time I see a tweet from that man, every single time I see some of the staff and administration he’s bringing in, it gets worse and worse,” she told reporters.

The actress continued, saying that the normalization of Trump is what terrifies her the most, adding, “The scariest part to me is how normal it’s becoming to some people and I think we just have to keep calling things out like, ‘Nope, you’re lying! Nope, that’s not true! Nope, that doesn’t work that way!’ As long as we don’t continue to let it slide, then there might be some hope, but it’s scary.”
