What’s wrong with Hollywood? Seriously. I mean for a while it was funny watching all the elitists have mental breakdowns and go completely off the rails, but seeing a statement like the one Peter Fonda just made about Barron Trump gave me great pause.
This is bad. This is disgusting and what’s worse is that the weak, malleable minds of the liberal left will actually believe this narrative.
Peter Fonda, Academy Award-nominated actor and filmmaker, went on a profane rant against the Trumps on Wednesday, suggesting that the president and first lady’s son, Barron, should be removed from the family and placed in a cage with pedophiles.
The 78-year-old “Easy Rider” actor made the remark while pointing to the child migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
What did he say?
In an all-caps rant, Fonda wrote, “We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles and see if mother will stand up against the giant a**hole she is married to. 90 million people in the streets on the same weekend in the country. F***.”
Fonda’s tweet has received more than 3,000 comments, several hundred retweets, and over 1,000 likes.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Fonda’s tweet was met with much opposition, even from those who appear to generally like what the man has to say on social media.
One commenter wrote, “I share your rage, Peter, but you’re better than this. Of course you’re not seriously suggesting this, but I think it’s best to leave Barron out of these discussions. None of the problems we’re facing are his fault. You’re a good dude, this isn’t the path you want to take.”
Other Twitter users tagged the Secret Service’s official Twitter account in their replies to Fonda’s tweet, in an apparent attempt to report him, and even more called him out for not decrying the migrant crisis when former President Barack Obama was in office.
