In the wake of actor Peter Fonda tweeting that President Donald Trump’s son, Barron, should be separated from first lady Melania Trump in retaliation for illegal immigrant children getting separated from their parents, a TV writer took similar aim at Donald Trump Jr.’s 4-year-old daughter.
"Don’t worry, we’re coming for Chloe, too," Pat Dussault tweeted.
It appears Dussault's tweet was a direct reply to Trump Jr. standing up for Barron and challenging Fonda:
Dussault is a writer with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Yahoo Lifestyle reported.
Although Dussault deleted his tweet, conservative actor James Woods tweeted a screenshot of it and included a notification to the Secret Service in his message.
"This is exactly the kind of violence that has been inspired by Peter Fonda’s tweet," Woods wrote in a previous tweet. "The individual making this suggestive terrorist threat against the granddaughter of the President is a 'TV writer,' which sadly makes sense in today’s twisted world of Hollywood."
As Fonda apologized for his words, Dussault did likewise on Twitter:
What did the CBC have to say?
TheBlaze on Friday reached out to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for a comment on the matter but didn't immediately receive a reply.
What did observers have to say?
As you can imagine, there were a number of furious reactions to Dussault's tweet:
- "Seems Pat Dussault has outed himself as a pedophile," one Twitter user wrote. "Kidnap and rape has replaced honest debate as the persuasion tool of choice among some on the political left."
- "Reason #146940300504 Trump will win again in 2020," another user wrote. "You guys keep up the good work."
- "I have a solution for dealing with @PatDussault....and it involves deleting more than his account. 5 minutes alone Pat. Let me know if you're down, coward," another user wrote.
