The Surprising Way Natasha Lyonne's 'OITNB' Fame Has Affected Her Dog

Rootbeer for President!

Natasha Lyonne isn't the only one profiting off her "Orange is the New Black" success.

"I will say that it's been pretty wild, but also enjoyable -- ever since 'Orange is the New Black,' people seem to really enjoy my dog Rootbeer, who has found her own following," she told HuffPost Live on Wednesday. "So for example, now she has her own Twitter account where she's running for president that I did not start."

Though the pup "does not talk politics at all at home," Lyonne joked, her tweets suggest she sides with the left.

"Hopefully she's on a Democratic ticket, because there's a lot of smack talking Trump on her Twitter feed, which at home, when she's with me, she's mum!" recounted the "Addicted to Fresno" actress.

Rootbeer Lyonne in 2016? America could certainly do worse.
