First Lady Melania Trump has made it her platform to protect children from online bullying and now she is protecting her 12-year-old son Barron. As the nation is in an uproar over the separation of parents and children who have entered the country illegally, Peter Fonda released a tweet suggesting Barron be ripped from Melania’s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles. While President Trump’s policies may divide political party lines, Peter Fonda’s comment has had the opposite response.
When it comes to suggesting any child be abused by pedophiles, most of society agrees that a line has been crossed. Some now find themselves questioning Peter Fonda’s frame of mind to even suggest such a thing.
The folks behind the documentary An Open Secret have also examined Peter Fonda’s comment and pointed out that he starred in the movie Wanda Nevada with a young Brooke Shields who is no stranger to Hollywood’s sexually exploitative ways. Not only did Brooke Shields appear in the highly controversial film Pretty Baby, she posed in Playboy when she was a mere 10-years-old.

Melania Trump was so outraged and disturbed by Peter Fonda’s comment that she contacted the Secret Service for protection.
Peter Fonda has since deleted the tweet that read as follows.
“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 a–hole she is married to. 90 million people in the streets on the same weekend in the country. F—.”
Fonda’s tweet has been decried as obscene by Republicans and Democrats alike and though the Secret Service is investigating, they haven’t released any information about how they are handling the incident.
Barron Trump’s family members haven’t been quiet about the issue.
Donald Trump Jr., quickly took to Twitter to state his disgust with Peter Fonda’s tweet. He also challenged him by saying it was something to pick on a child, but that if he wanted to try his tactics on an adult, Donald Trump, Jr. was more than willing to take him on.
