There is no questioning the acting pedigree of Academy Award winning actor Robert De Niro. From Taxi Driver to the Godfather and even Meet the Fockers, it’s an impressive resume.
What’s not so impressive these days are De Niro’s constant screams for attention by attacking President Donald Trump.
Recently, Robert De Niro went on an unhinged rant about Donald Trump. And what he said left jaws on the floor
Robert De Niro is arguably one of the greatest American actors of all-time.
In all of his movies De Niro plays off of his “tough guy” mobster-like and volatile characters.
The same can be said for him in real life. Not only is he known as a difficult man to work with, he is also becoming well-known for his profanity laced “tough” attacks on President Trump.
And, De Niro telling all who will listen that he believes President Donald Trump cares more about his reelection than he does about Americans during the coronavirus pandemic.
“It’s appalling. He wants to be reelected. He doesn’t even care how many people die,” De Niro said.
Emily Maitlis, the host of BBC Newsnight, noted Trump’s fan base would take issue with De Niro’s remarks.
De Niro doubled down and raved that he believes Trump does not care about the lives of Americans.
“He doesn’t care for those people and the people who he pretends to care about are the people he has the most disdain for because he could care less about them,” De Niro said.
He continued in his rant, saying, “They might like to tell themselves that or delude themselves, but he doesn’t care about them.”
De Niro also said that the Trump administration’s handling of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic is “Shakespearean” and that Trump is a “lunatic.”
“It’s like Shakespearean the whole thing,” De Niro said. “You got a lunatic saying things that people are trying to dance around.”
De Niro whined how New York City has become a “ghost town” and how other parts of the world look the same way, somehow blaming Trump for all of it.
He continued, “It’s interesting, it’s kind of like a science fiction movie but it’s real.”
New York has, of course, become the state with the most coronavirus cases due to the mishandling of the crisis by both Governor Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio.
As of Wednesday afternoon, there are nearly 344,000 confirmed coronavirus cases and more than 27,000 deaths in New York alone.
De Niro would be a wise guy if he would stop acting like Fredo and actually look to his own city’s leadership for the real jokers.
