However, the conversation quickly turned to politics, with Fonda taking the floor and stating, "Every single citizen of the United States, we need a wall."
After taking a long pause, she continued, "A good wall that keeps the White House away from the (Robert) Mueller investigation. We have every single right to know what the result of that investigation is. And if there's some law that gives someone the right to edit the results, we have to change the law. And we have to do everything we can do."
Kimmel laughed and then confessed that he thought Fonda was about to show support for U.S. President Donald Trump's controversial plan to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border.
"I got nervous for a second," he sighed.
It appears that Fonda, 81, is concerned that President Trump's nominee for the next attorney general, William Barr, may not release the full results of special counsel Mueller's final report into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and other matters. Barr has indicated that the findings will be made public and vowed that he will allow Mueller to complete his investigation.
