Love you Jane Fonda -a sexist boy in a bully pulpit who is missing an opportunity to be

an eco-hero'.

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/dec/12/jane-fonda-donald-trump-climate-change-interview
<snip>
The screen legend and activist Jane Fonda said she’s prepared to do “whatever I need to do” to counter a Donald Trump administration, and called the president-elect a sexist “boy in a bully pulpit” who is missing an opportunity to be an eco-hero.

The actor let loose on Trump’s choice to head the Environmental Protection Agency, the global-warming skeptic Scott Pruitt, and called the pick her “greatest fear” about the incoming administration.

A self-confessed late bloomer as a feminist, Fonda also predicted that women’s rights “are going to come under incredible attack” at the federal and state level in the aftermath of the Trump election victory.

But she chose the environment when asked to name her biggest worry about a Trump White House in an interview with the Guardian.

“We are confronted by someone who is against the very existence of the agency he’s being put in charge of. There are many dangers with Trump but the difference here is that we have no time. The tipping point for climate change is looming,” Fonda said.

2. On the one hand

I absolutely applaud her for calling him out but on the other hand, I know there will be people ready to pounce on her because of her history in relationship to the Vietnam War.

3. Hey,She knows full well what is coming at her.

Con Job will lash out at her,and she will take that sucker apart. We all know about Nam and the Right Wing crap she endured for Nixon's friends. There was a ton more about that story than what the press was spoon fed.

16. Yep - because ReTHUGs and RW radio

and TV repeat and reinforce over and over.
The only way to beat a bully is to whip him - then watch him run and squeal.

10. If they have to go back in time to 50 years ago, we can play that game too.

Lots of the Reich wingers have closets stuffed with embarrassments, which we can talk about.

14. But Dems decided to take the high road

The day he called her Crooked Hillary, he would have become Don the Con at every rally - and all the cons would have been listed.


This is a man who recently settled a law suit for fraud with a university that didn't exist. He defrauded ordinary people. This is their fucking leader and hero.

I fucking pass

18. Well, Kremlin Don has finally trumped Hanoi Jane

When all is said and done, Fonda is an actress. Anyone can brush her off with a "who cares what she thinks?"

The same people who have spent decades cultivating their loathing of "Hanoi Jane" for aiding and abetting a hostile government and putting Americans at risk have helped put the whole country at risk by putting Kremlin Don over the EC top.

When they yell "traitor", time to respond "Your's is bigger."

12. There are so many worries about a Dump administration

it's hard to pick just one as the biggest. But the environment is a good choice. Thank you, Jane!

17. She is merely stating fact. Trump is sexist. Big time.

 

I don't know many who don't agree with that. Trump wants to put Scott Pruit a climate change denier in charge of the EPA? Folks we're going to choke to death.
