You know what? Maybe we’re being too hard on Peter Fonda. Yeah, the guy went off on a batsh*t insane rant against Donald Trump and Republicans and wanted to throw Barron Trump into a cage with pedophiles, but it was coming from a good place. A holy place:

Statement from Peter Fonda's rep: "Peter wanted to make sure that Melania and Ivanka communicate with the president the dire circumstances of separating mothers and young children. My response is the move was evil same as the Pope."

Oh! I missed the Pope’s rant that Baron Trump should be caged with pedophiles. Can someone send me a link? https://t.co/Gmu0Iphkv7

We missed it, too. But no matter. Because Fonda’s really sorry or whatever:
Actor @iamfonda is apologizing to the Trump family for his vulgar tweets. "Like many Americans, I am very impassioned and distraught" over the border crisis, "but I went way too far," he says. "It was wrong and I should not have done it." Says he's sorry. (via @TheSandraG)

Sorry he got called out, is more like it. Fonda’s tweets weren’t an accident. They weren’t a mistake. He meant every word he wrote.
After a talk with @SecretService , who wouldn't?

What about the Border patrol family members? He called for the harassment of their kids at school.
