Donald Trump Jr. has a message for actress Jennifer Lawrence: Secret Service agents would crush the presidential assault fantasy she’s “been waiting” to experience.

The star of “The Hunger Games” made headlines this week in an interview by media mogul Oprah Winfrey when she disclosed a desire to assault President Trump. His son, however, responded Thursday to her “martini to the face” fantasy with a dose of reality.

“I’m pretty sure that’s not how it would end,” the younger Trump dryly tweeted regarding the suggestion that she could act with impunity.

The actress’s comments, published by The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday, came in response to an inquiry about her desire to meet the president.

“I think [I want to meet him],” she said. “I’ve got a pretty good speech. And it ends with a martini to the face. I have something to say for all of them. I watch different characters on the news, and I’m like, ‘You just wait.’”

“If that moment comes, you would be prepared?” Ms. Winfrey asked.

“Oh, I would, definitely,” the actress responded. “Oh, my God, I’ve been waiting for this moment. I’ll give you a hint — it’s not nice. You wouldn’t want me to say it to you.”

Ms. Lawrence went on to say that her political activism has “turned into an obsession” in recent years.

“I mean, I don’t think you ever do feel settled, [but] as soon as you feel settled with your home and your personal life, you’re looking at the world and going, ‘How in the hell do I fix this? What do we do?’ […] I would love to help pass a bundle of laws [against government corruption]. We’d be able to pass state-by-state legislation to help [stop] corruption in our government.”
