Jane Fonda on GOP Candidates: ‘They All Scare Me’

By James Hirsen

Jane Fonda has once again donned her pundit hat, this time to weigh in on the current field of Republican presidential candidates.

The liberal actress-activist said that the field of potential GOP nominees is creating a sense of fear in her.

Fonda was interviewed Sunday night by CNN’s Piers Morgan, and the subject of President Barack Obama’s Republican opponents came up in their conversation.

Fonda was asked which of the GOP candidates impressed her and which ones concerned her.

“They all scare me frankly,” Fonda said. “I get depressed and scared when I look at the Republican debates.”

Fonda did not indicate during the interview which of the top-polling candidates caused greater apprehension, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich or former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

She went on to explain the reason for her trepidation over the choices that Republican primary voters face.

“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 explained.

“And, oh, there's no problem with the environment, this is all made up by the left, the scientists don't really know what they're talking about - this worries me,” Fonda added.
