VIDEO: Jane Fonda Says She Feels “Sad” for Trump But He’s “in Bed with the Fossil Fuel Industry”

Hollywood actress Jane Fonda has been making headlines for getting arrested multiple times for taking part in climate protests at capitol hill.

Fonda said she was inspired by 16 year old climate activist Greta Thunberg.

The Hill reports actress and environmental activist Jane Fonda said Saturday that she feels “sad” for President Trump and said that he is “in bed with the fossil fuel industry.”

“I don’t hate him. I feel sad for him,” Fonda said of Trump in a CNN interview. “And what he’s doing to the world … is just criminal. It’s just criminal. It’s terrible. But there’s more of us, and we can make a difference.”


Fonda has made headlines in recent weeks after being arrested in Washington while protesting inaction on climate change multiple times.

She told CNN that when Trump was first elected, she wanted to get “a lot of very beautiful women who are very, very smart about climate” such as Pamela Anderson to show him the importance of the issue.

She said that she talked with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the president’s advisers who are also his daughter and son-in-law respectively, but they did not follow up.

“He’s a petroleum president,” Fonda said. “They are so in bed with the fossil fuel industry that there’s nothing that even Pamela Anderson could get out of Donald Trump.”

Jane Fonda has been arrested for the 3rd time by capitol police for holding another weekly climate change protest.

The third time Fonda was arrested she brought along “Cheers” star Ted Danson, who was also arrested.


Fonda says she is prepared for more arrests.
