First Lady Melania Trump’s office confirmed to The Daily Caller Wednesday that they have notified the Secret Service about actor Peter Fonda’s suggestion, in a series of since-deleted vulgar tweets, that Barron Trump should be kidnapped.
It’s time for @SecretService + @FBI to pick up Peter Fonda for a chat. He’s threatened to kidnap the son of the President and harass the children of Federal Law Enforcement officials today. @Jack needs to get this hate off of his platform before it leads to a crime. pic.twitter.com/j64hOTpfPG— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) June 20, 2018
“The tweet is sick and irresponsible and USSS has been notified,” spokesperson for the first lady Stephanie Grisham told The Daily Caller.
Fonda also promoted horrific violence against DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and called for the kidnapping of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders's children.
Fonda also called for the public harassment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, including harassing their children at school.
A rep for Fonda told Fox that the actor "wanted to make sure that Melania and Ivanka communicate with the president the dire circumstances of separating mothers and young children."
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted his own response to Fonda’s threats against Barron and the children of ICE agents.
You’re clearly a sick individual and everyone is an internet badass but rather than attack an 11 year old like a bully and a coward why don’t you pick on someone a bit bigger. LMK. https://t.co/8OhiQ0aZmO— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 20, 2018
And another... now Fonda is targeting the kids of Law Enforcment. Hey @SonyPictures are you just going to sit back and let this & his child rape fantasies go? Your silence almost reads like you’re ok with it. Please clarify as I’ve heard you have a movie with him dropping soon https://t.co/qgKzFUNijV— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 20, 2018
