Actress and left-wing activist Jane Fonda told CNN’s Don Lemon in an interview that aired late Wednesday night that “whether it’s through the elections or through impeachment,” President Donald Trump needs to be removed from office for the sake of the environment.
“He is an oil President. His Cabinet is an oil Cabinet,” Fonda told the CNN Tonight host when he asked for her thoughts on the ongoing partisan impeachment proceedings against President Trump. “He is bought off by fossil fuels. And a lot of people in the Senate, a lot of Republican candidates, are too.”
“We can’t solve the problem when we have elected officials who are paid by the fossil fuel industry,” Fonda added. “And so the sooner that we move beyond him, the better, whether it’s through the elections or through impeachment or whatever.”
The star of Netflix’s Grace and Frankie announced earlier this year that she would take a break from acting and move to Washington, D.C., to commit herself to fighting climate change. And for four consecutive Fridays, Fonda has protested and has been arrested alongside some of her famous friends.
