Far left actress Jane Fonda has been talking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer about why she is campaigning for Joe Biden.

Appearing on “The Situation Room” on Tuesday, the climate activist said that if Donald Trump is elected in November, we will not have a livable future.

Fonda said, “The elections in November or existential really, who wins in November is going to determine whether we have a livable future. It’s as simple as that. There’s a very stark choice it’s not that I’m 100% happy with President Biden but he’s someone that we can work with, that the American people can work with.”

She then added, “So because I think that this election is so important, it’s existential. I decided that I was going to throw in with the campaign.”

Host Wolf Blitzer asked “So let me follow up. Jane is, is your support for President Biden more about supporting him or stopping Donald Trump?”

Fonda replied “It’s a little of both. I’ve known Joe Biden for a long time.”

She continued “I’m primarily a climate activist and you know, this I guess the best way that I can describe what will happen if the orange man is elected. As we know, because we read papers recently, he invited all the CEO’s of the big oil companies to meet with him at Mar-a-Lago and basically said, if you give me $1 billion, I will cut all the climate regulation since that you don’t like clean air, clean water. All these things really protect the American people. That’s why I really want to elect Joe Biden because we’re running out of time. I have grandchildren. I won’t be around to see the worst of it, but we have to confront the climate crisis and we have to do it fast.”

During the interview Fonda also defended Biden’s mental acuity saying he was “just fine.” 

“I’m older than he is,” 86year old Fonda said. 

She said “I’m all for age,” she said. “I can tell you that you do get wiser and you do learn things. You learn from your mistakes. I have seen him up close and personal and he’s fine. He’s perfectly suited to be President of the United States … He’s just fine.”
