Robert De Niro compares Donald Trump to one of his most famous film roles, then jumps off the deep end

Actor Robert De Niro isn’t a Donald Trump fan, to say the least.

In fact, despite a recent warning from the American Psychiatric Association to refrain from armchair “diagnosing” presidential candidates from afar, De Niro seems sure that Trump is “totally nuts” and shouldn’t run for president.

The acting legend was marking the 40th anniversary of a film he starred in, Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver,” in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina when he made the comments comparing Trump to his character in the classic movie.

“One of the things to me was just the irony at the end,” De Niro said about the part when his character, Travis Bickle, “is back driving a cab, celebrated, which is kind of relevant in some way today too … People like Donald Trump who shouldn’t be where he is so … God help us … What he’s been saying is really totally crazy, ridiculous … he is totally nuts.”

His comments were met with applause from a presumably liberal audience at the Sarajevo National Theater.

“But I think now they are really starting to push back, the media … finally they are starting to say: Come on Donald, this is ridiculous, this is nuts, this is insane,” the actor said.

Really, STARTING to push back? Mr. De Niro, when has the media EVER not been in the bag for a Democratic candidate?

Not everyone agrees, obviously.
