THE DAILY CALLER:
Veteran Marine sniper and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer laid down a challenge on Thursday for actor Peter Fonda following the latter’s now-deleted Twitter rant attacking those he had deemed responsible for the separation of parents and children who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

In a series of tweets, Fonda had lashed out at ICE agents, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, but it was a tweet calling for the kidnapping and caging of Barron Trump that raised eyebrows and eventually got the Secret Service involved.
Thanks @Dakota_Meyer always great to have a Medal of Honor recipient on your side. Much better than a washed up hollywood liberal encouraging child rape. I’ll take that trade all day every day. You’re the man. https://t.co/QWFwT6D4LE

Trump Jr., who had also called out Sony Pictures Classics over Fonda’s upcoming film, tweeted his appreciation to Meyer.
