Jane Fonda on the GOP: "They all scare me, frankly"
No matter what your political affiliation, watching a debate can make you feel anywhere from relieved to hopeful to angered to excited to grumpy to sleepy. (Any of the Seven Dwarfs would apply, really.) But it seems Jane Fonda has two very distinct emotions when it comes to the unending GOP debates: Depressed and scared.
The actress/activist, talked with Piers Morgan on his CNN program Sunday night and discussed, among other things, the current Republican candidates. When asked which of the politicians impress her and which ones scare her, Fonda responded, ” They all scare me, frankly. I get depressed and scared when I look at the Republican debates.” (Here’s something that might depress and scare Fonda even more: Last night’s Iowa debate on ABC News was the most-watched one yet.)
While Fonda wouldn’t say whether or not front-runners Mitt Romney or New Gingrich scared her (Newt Romney, if you will) she did explain her apprehension with all of the candidates. “I’m worried about anybody getting elected to office who says we have to do away with or privatize Social Security, we have to reduce medical health insurance, we have to not raise taxes,” Fonda told Morgan, adding that Republicans implying “there’s no problem with the environment … this worries me.”
