While some Hillary Clinton haters are already taking shots at her looks and age, the presidential hopeful still has Issa Rae in her corner.

Rae, the creative mind behind The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, sat down with "The HuffPost Show" hosts Roy Sekoff and Marc Lamont Hill on Friday and praised Clinton for running despite her age.

"I applaud her for just being old as fuck and being out there, because I want to be old as fuck and not have to alter my face or body in any way, shape or form," Rae said.

Rae also commented on the beauty expectations that have been hurled Clinton's way since she announced her presidential bid.

"I'm just more horrified that there is an expectation that she would need and would get plastic surgery. And the fact that she didn't -- we're celebrating that, and I think that that's just a travesty at the end of the day," she said.
