The Left is back up people like this?
While advertising his latest film The Irishman in the United Kingdom, Actor Robert De Niro took some shots at President Donald Trump. When appearing at the BFI London Film Festival, the Raging Bull actor called Trump a “dirty player” and told The Guardian news paper that he “can’t wait to see” America’s leader behind bars.
“Today, everything’s been turned upside-down because of Trump because he’s such a dirty player. It’s amazing to me that’s he’s…getting away with it. He won’t get away with it forever, but he is getting away with saying these things about every institution,” De Niro told the BFI audience. “We have to defend these institutions, plus the Fourth Estate, the press, because he’s trying to destroy them and for only one reason: to save himself. And we all know this.”
The Oscar-winner used an event’s Q&A section to skewer Trump again, saying, “It’s pretty disgusting that we’ve got Republicans there who are just so afraid to do anything, so afraid to stand up.”
“They could be stars in their own communities. They are. They could go into private practice, make more money and stand up and still be very vocal against him, and I don’t know why they don’t do that,” De Niro said. “Certain senators have pulled out…but others could pull out, get out and say, ‘I can’t be in this administration. I’ve got to speak out constantly against this administration because we have to right this wrong.’”
In other cases, when discussing his new crime drama, Martin Scorsese, De Niro told The Guardian that Trump was “a gangster president” and said “I can’t wait to see him in jail.”
According to Variety, De Niro’s anti-Trump European tour dates back to Friday when the Meet the Fockers star spoke on the BBC’s The Graham Norton Show and said: “Today, we have a weird, twisted president who thinks he’s a gangster, who’s not even a very good gangster.”
“Gangsters have honor, you shake a hand and they have your word and you have theirs and that’s it. But with this guy, it’s not the case,” Robert De Niro said.
