Conservative news site Daily Caller reports exclusively that First Lady Melania Trump contacted the U.S. Secret Service about some offensive tweets regarding the inhumane child separation policy under President Donald Trump.

“WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT ASSHOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO,” Fonda tweeted on Wednesday morning.

The actor continued a series of indefensible tweets about female Trump administration officials.

Trump's office did not explain why the Secret Service was notified about the offensive tweets, as they do not appear to represent credible threats and should be covered under the First Amendment.
