Actor Peter Fonda lost it over the child separation issue and asked Melania on twitter how she would like it if Barron was ripped from her arms? The Hill:
“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 ASSHOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO. 90 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE STREETS ON THE SAME WEEKEND IN THE COUNTRY. F—,” he wrote on Twitter.
The tweet has since been deleted, and the actor apologized in a statement.
“I tweeted something highly inappropriate and vulgar about the president and his family in response to the devastating images I was seeing on television,” Fonda said. “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.”
Fonda, the “Easy Rider” star and younger brother of actress Jane Fonda, also called for protesters to surround Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents while they’re picking up their children from school.
Fonda isn’t necessarily wrong in his sentiment, but he is in violation of a rule that the young children of presidents are off limits, no matter what the discussion.
Maybe the better course of action would have been for Melania, who supposedly has chosen helping children as her mission while in the White House, instead of calling the Secret Service, to see what she could do about reuniting the children already torn from their parents and shipped off to detention centers all over the country. Right now there is no plan in place whatsoever to help those parents and children. They just have to live with the trauma.
An HHS official tells @weijia that there will NOT be special efforts made to reunite children who have already been separated from their families bc of the Zero Tolerance Policy, despite Trumps EO. Process will proceed for minors currently in the unaccompanied children program.

it’s anyone’s guess what happens to those kids now, some as young as three months old. Foster care, adoption, whatever — Trump doesn’t care. After signing his Executive Order he flew to a campaign rally in Minnesota, to spew the same old drivel. He did come up with a new line, “Americans bleed red, white and blue.” Whatever the hell that means. He’s already ruined the lives of tens of thousands of people and who knows how many more to come with this only slightly modified policy which he implemented today. They had a word for this back when the Nazis were doing the same things to the Jews. It was “genocide.”
