“On Friday, actress Jane Fonda made an ill-advised joke about “murder” and as the rest of The View panel predicted when she said it, Republicans picked it up and ran with it. Marjorie Taylor Greene went as far as to suggest that the program was calling for her assassination before launching into a disgusting tirade about Fonda herself. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what happened.

So in case you hadn’t been paying attention to what happened? Very late last week on Friday, uh, Jane Fonda, the actress, went on the view along with Lily Tomlin, and they were asked by co-host, uh, joy Bahar, like, Hey, outside of protesting, what can we do about all these anti-abortion laws? And Jane Fonda foolishly responded, well, I’ve thought of murder. Lilly Tomlin then said, wait, what did you say? And Jane Fonda smiled and said, murder Joy. Bahar then said, she’s kidding. She’s just kidding. They’ll pick up on that and just run with it. And yes, that is exactly what happened. So while that was very foolish of Jane Fonda, it also, if you look at the expression on her face, it was a joke, I think, but Marjorie Taylor Green didn’t think it was funny at all. And now Marjorie Taylor Green is out there over the weekend claiming that the view is trying to assassinate her, what she said on social media, UNAP, unapologetic, pro-life politician. Here, I routinely get death threats because of the nasty women on the view and the things they say about me. But calling for us to be assassinated makes the view, the host, the producers, the network, the advertisers and everyone involved responsible for death threats, attacks, and potential murders of pro-life politicians and activists. I am reporting this.
Okay? Um, so does that mean like when Fox News does a segment on abortion doctors and then that abortion doctor gets killed by a Bill O’Reilly fan, does that mean Bill O’Reilly’s responsible? Because I don’t see, I have never seen you actually call Fox News out for that. And yes, for the record, that is something that did happen many years ago. They called him Dr. Tiller, the Baby Killer. Are they actually named him by name? At least Jane Fonda didn’t say any politician’s name. Hell, she didn’t even mention a political party. Marjorie, you’re the one who self-identified as one of the people that are doing what Jane Fonda says is bad. So that’s on you. You did that to yourself and it got even worse. Marjorie Taylor Green continued, by the way, Jane Fonda, your eggs are dried up so you don’t have to worry about getting pregnant anytime soon so you can retire from demanding baby murder. Now, okay, scientifically speaking, Marjorie, that’s, that’s not what happens is that what you think happens inside your own body, that as you get older, all your leftover eggs just dry up and they just sit there dried up in you.
A a a woman is born with all of the eggs she is gonna have in her entire life. The body does not produce new eggs. All of the eggs she will ever have are inside of her.
When she goes through puberty and starts having her period, that’s when the eggs start going through the cycle. There comes a point in a woman’s life where she has no more eggs, typically, that is when menopause hits, the eggs are done, the body is done with the reproductive cycles according to the body itself. And, and then that’s what happens.
Poor, poor Marjorie…
