She is completely off the rails now…
In an interview that aired late Wednesday night, actress and left-wing activist Jane Fonda told CNN’s Don Lemon that “whether through the elections or through impeachment,” President Donald Trump needed to be removed from office in the interests of the environment.
“He is an oil President. His Cabinet is an oil Cabinet,” Fonda said to the CNN Tonight host asked about her thoughts on the impeachment proceedings against President Trump. “He is bought off by fossil fuels. And a lot of people in the Senate, a lot of Republican candidates, are too.”
“We can’t solve the problem when we have elected officials who are paid by the fossil fuel industry,” Fonda continued. “And so the sooner that we move beyond him, the better, whether it’s through the elections or through impeachment or whatever.”
Earlier this year, the star of Netflix’s Grace and Frankie confirmed that she would be taking a break from acting and move to Washington, D.C. to combat climate change. Fonda protested and was detained along with several of her celebrity friends for four consecutive Fridays.
“I’m trying to show on my ‘Fire Drill Fridays,’ this is the new normal,” the actor said to Lemon. “We have to be out there. We have to be risking arrest. We have to engage in civil disobedience because we have very little time and what has to happen is so huge.”
Endorsing the trillion dollar Green New Deal of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jane Fonda compared the proposal with the kind of initiative that passed during the Great Depression. “Everyone will be lifted, and we have to fight for that,” she said of the proposal. “Which means we can’t elect anybody to office that isn’t really brave.”
