Actor Robert De Niro trashed President Trump at a lavish New York gala where a park bench was dedicated in his honor.
De Niro, who has made slamming Trump his second career, said he won’t allow the president of the United States to sit on his (public) bench. Meanwhile, the actor didn’t ban his longtime friend — accused serial rapist Harvey Weinstein — from sitting on him.
“One of my pleasures will be keeping people off my bench who don’t deserve a view of the park, like Donald Trump,” he said at the Annual Hudson River Park Gala (via NY Daily News).
The Oscar winner also tore into the president in a profanity-laced rant: “F-ck you, Donald Trump! It’s a horror with this motherf–ker.”
Like other celebrities whose careers are in decline, De Niro has recently made headlines for blasting President Trump, whom he called a “low life.”
Oddly, De Niro has remained curiously silent about another “low-life,” his longtime pal, Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual harassment and abuse by 35 women.
Three of the women said Weinstein raped them. More victims are expected to come forward in the days and weeks ahead.
We wonder if De Niro’s silence about Weinstein has anything to do with the fact that he owns the Tribeca Grill restaurant in New York, where Weinstein allegedly groped several women.
Or maybe it has something to do with 1998 news reports that named De Niro as a client of a prostitution ring that trafficked in 15-year-old girls. He denied the claims.
And don’t forget this tidbit: In September 2017, De Niro begged world leaders at the United Nations to send money to the Caribbean island of Barbuda, which had been devastated by Hurricane Irma. Sounds kindhearted, right?
Except De Niro neglected to mention that he owns a multi-million-dollar resort in Barbuda, so he would benefit financially from the international aid. Sounds like Ole Bobby picked up a few tricks about panhandling and grifting from his pal, Hillary Clinton.
Meanwhile, many on Twitter had a blast poking fun at Robert De Niro’s leftist hypocrisy. (Note: Tweets are not vetted news reports.)
