The election’s over, guys.
It’s been over a half-year since Donald Trump‘s election as president, but he’s still the object of obsession by liberal Hollywood A-lister Robert DeNiro.
Moments before HBO’s debut of “Wizard of Lies,” the acting veteran likened the president to the man he portrays in the film — fraudster and disgraced investment advisor Bernie Madoff.
Robert De Niro: Trump is a ‘bad con artist,’ just like Bernie Madoff https://t.co/SpMBqsvgYn

He attributed Trump’s brash emergence on the political scene to the reason that the Madoff story still “resonates” with the American people.
“What amazes me is that (Donald Trump is) such a bad con artist,” he told USA Today. “Bernie Madoff was a guy who was low-key. I make no excuse for him. What he did was horrible and awful — monstrous. But Trump is in your face every day doing something that is absolutely — what word can I use? He’s just a slob. He’s a pig.”
DeNiro found a kindred spirit in “Lies” director Barry Levinson, who said that “Madoff seemed credible” as compared to Trump.
The late British Prime Minister Winston Churchill made an observation about people like DeNiro and Levinson.
“You have enemies? Good,” he said. “That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
Given the number of enemies in the president’s life, it’s fair to say he’s standing up for a lot.
