Jane Fonda said she thinks that the coronavirus is “God’s gift to the left” and said that it has “ripped the Band-Aid off who [President Donald Trump] is.”
“We are people who can help determine which way humanity goes,” the 82-year-old actress shared in a clip supporting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The video was posted on YouTube by the Washington Free Beacon in a post on Wednesday.
“What a great gift, what a tremendous opportunity, we’re just so lucky, we have to use it with every ounce of intelligence and courage and wherewithal we have,” she added. (RELATED: Feminist Jane Fonda Wants To Work With Quentin Tarantino: ‘Would You Put In A Good Word For Me?’)
Fonda continued while giggling, “I just think COVID is God’s gift to the left. That is a terrible thing to say. I think it was a very difficult thing to send down to us, but it has ripped the Band-Aid off who [Trump] is and what he stands for and what is being done to average people and working people in this country.” (RELATED: Jane Fonda Arrested In Washington, D.C.

The actress went on to explain that there is now “a chance to harness that anger and make a difference.”
