(CNSNews.com) – Actress and liberal activist Jane Fonda says she has a business idea inspired by the presidency of Donald Trump, but it's not a flattering one.

Appearing on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” Monday night, Fonda – with Colbert’s help – was pitching her new line of mugs with her own (much younger) mug shot printed on them.

“If you go to janefonda.com you can buy a mugshot mug,” Colbert said. “Did you know this was for sale?” he asked Fonda.

“Did I know it’s for sale?! It's my blog!” Fonda responded. “And all the money goes to my nonprofit.”

Then she had a suggestion for the president: “I have an idea for a new business model for Trump.”

“What's that?” Colbert asked her.

“Adult diapers,” Fonda replied. “They could be called Trumpers, because -- to help with all the leaks.”

The audience laughed and cheered.

Colbert finally directed the conversation to the show “Grace and Frankie,” starring Fonda and Lily Tomlin, now entering its third season on Netflix.

“Now in this, you're two friends who end up living together after your husbands fall in love with each other and leave you,” Colbert said. “You support each other and you’ve been friends for a long time. You go into business in season three.”

Colbert asked Fonda, “What is the business you go into?”

“Adult vibrators for older women,” Fonda said. The conversation – involving three-speed vibrators that glow in the dark – was raunchy enough for Colbert to offer this explanation: “By the way, I have been told by CBS that we can discuss this as long as it's in the context of the show.”

At the end of the interview, Fonda told viewers, “Notice our Planned Parenthood pins!”
