Peter Fonda Apologizes for Tweet About Barron Trump

Peter Fonda is apologizing for a tweet about Barron Trump.

The 78-year-old actor tweeted, then deleted, a tweet suggesting that President Donald Trump‘s youngest son should be put “in a cage” according to federal authorities.

The tweet was issued seemingly out of anger given the ongoing separation of children from parents at the U.S.-Mexico border as part of the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy.

“WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL 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–K,” he reportedly wrote.

He later issued an apology after the Secret Service was reportedly made aware of the tweet.

“I tweeted something highly inappropriate and vulgar about the president and his family in response to the devastating images I was seeing on television. Like many Americans, I am very impassioned and distraught over the situation with children separated from their families at the border, but I went way too far. It was wrong and I should not have done it. I immediately regretted it and sincerely apologize to the family for what I said and any hurt my words have caused.”

    I’m tired of people apologizing to the same losers who complain about being in an overly PC world. His brief words were stunning but the actual reality of our government is just as stunning if not worse.

    You don’t threaten someone’s children and speak about handing them over to a pedophile. The current law goes way back & President Trump is trying to change it. Let’s see whether the Dems work w/him or not, which I doubt. Dems could care less about the children. They need a platform for upcoming 2018 elections and will use this. Too bad it won’t work.

    You don’t bomb other countries because you want their oil.
    You don’t kill parents and then deny children refuge.

    “Let’s see whether the Dems work w/him or not, which I doubt.”
    You mean like how Obama couldn’t get anything done in congress? Except now, the entire congress is republican controlled and you *still* can’t get anything done? Uh huh.

    Where is the stream of oil pouring in to the USA? They now have had many years to make the stream happen.

  • wearing

    Your response shows the lack of educated people who vote. THAT should be illegal smh.

  • wearing

    You don’t make sense.

  • Patty Hoch

    Tax cuts, border control, unemployment 3.7%, more jobs, jobs, jobs. Yep, Trump2020.

  • wearing

    Yep, still not responding about you turning your head from people in need. How Christian of you. And unemployment was a byproduct of past policies. Tax cuts were for big businesses, not you. Retaliation for the US’s tariffs are coming in. And border control…oh yea…Mexico’s paying for it, right? Why don’t you give some of those resources to paying for your education you say we’re saving by not helping families. I guess that’s because you actually have no say in anything but think you do. All Hail Trump.

  • Patty Hoch

    Where do you live? I would love to meet w/you to have this discussion.

  • Patty Hoch

    President Trump just requested more oil be generated to bring down the price.

    Austin, Texas, Hon. Instead of meeting with me, you should really meet up with your local university and take some classes.

    The initial discussion was related to threatening a child which should in no way be condoned.

  • wearing

    In no way should putting your finances or greed above another human should be condoned either, and that was his point. We just have different morals and I find you disgusting is all.

    “If you’ve ever wondered what you’d do
    during slavery, the holocaust, or civil rights movement;
    you’re doing it right now.”

  • Patty Hoch

    I don’t appreciate your judging me as you do not know me. I am not judging you, simply trying to have a discussion. God Bless & best wishes to you.

  • wearing

    “God Bless” is something you say when you’re an actual good person. I pray you find your morals somewhere, maybe in Isaiah 1:17.

  • Patty Hoch

    My husband is a Minister. We both pray for you and your family. God Bless U.

  • wearing

    You pray for me but ignore the cries of children? Disgusting.

  • Patty Hoch

    We foster children. So, please do not tell me we ignore the cries of children. As for Trump, he is having children reunited w/their parents. Also, 83% of the children were sent here unattended.

  • wearing

    LIES. It’s closer to 25%. I bet you don’t foster either. Troll.

    I’m so sorry for you. I certainly would not judge you as I leave that to the Lord alone. I hope you find happiness and peace in your life one day.

    Patty Hoch, She Who Lies About Degrees, cut the shit. You’re literally ignoring your own sins. Your behavior is what causes inequality in our country. Hope you find happiness my ass. You care about a white lady’s dream of what the 50s was while ignoring the bigotry and racism that affected everyone else. The country is not a Leave it Beaver episode. Democrats have issues, but the republicans are the ones running both houses and they’re still blaming others. Sounds just like what you’re doing, actually. Happiness and peace won’t come until you realize the world is not just for older white people.
