Breaking News

Julia Louis-Dreyfus says she has breast cancer ... and the "Veep" star took a shot at President Trump and Congress while announcing her diagnosis.

Julia just posted, "1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I'm the one."

She added, "The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union." 56-year-old Julia didn't say anything about what stage she's in, or if doctors caught it early.

She did however take a shot at the battle over health care, saying not all women have the benefits she does, "so let's fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality."
