Actor Robert De Niro warned Trump-supporting Republicans in an interview this week with the Hollywood Reporter.
“We’re not gonna’ forget” that they supported Trump, he threatened.
De Niro’s name and box-office muscle are practically non-existent for the younger ones among us. But the guy continues to get media coverage for his brutal, often profanity-laced criticisms of the President. It’s clear to all who watch, that the hatred is real and it’s personal for “the Raging Bull.”
Asked about De Niro’s Saturday Night Live performances as Special Counsel Robert Mueller, he boasted, “I consider it my civic duty to do that part — just to be there because (Mueller) doesn’t say much, but he doesn’t have to. It’s that simple. I might even be happier the day that Mueller puts him in handcuffs, takes him in an orange jumpsuit and puts him away for a long time.”
Prodded to comment on Attorney General William Barr’s summary conclusions of the Mueller Report, De Niro laid bare how oblivious he is. “It’s pathetic,” he spat. “You know it’s interesting that Democrats are trying to do the right thing and say, ‘We’re waiting for justice to come,’ and then it doesn’t come. Or it will come in a way, Mueller presented it in a way that’s up to us and Congress to make, come up with the results, but now it’s being barred by Barr. And that’s to be seen now what Congress will do and how effective they’re going to be.
“But I think there’s going to be a lot of mass demonstrations,” De Niro said. “… a lot of protests if this is not resolved. We have to know what went on. We have to know. The handwriting’s on the wall. These people are all crooks; they’re doing it before our very eyes. Trump obstructed justice all the time, first by firing Comey and all the other things and saying it on NBC with Lester Holt, I mean, what are we talking about? It’s right before our eyes. Justice has to be served.”
DeNiro has taken every opportunity he gets to blast Trump. At the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival lunch with a room full of reporters, he called the President “our low-life in chief.” Trump responded by tweeting that De Niro is a “very low IQ individual” among other things.
In this week’s interview, the actor said that he will continue to “represent” those who are not Trump supporters. “… just want to be present, to represent,” casting the SNL Mueller skit role as his gift to the part of America that votes blue.
“To me and to many of us, Mueller represented justice,” said DeNiro. “And he still does. He’s been muted by Barr and what’s going on and by Republicans. I don’t know what’s happened in this country with the Republicans. I mean, the Republicans with Nixon didn’t do this, but these Republicans are. And we’re not gonna forget about them, because when later on, years to come, long after Trump is gone, there are gonna be writers, as soon as any of these characters come out, emerge, in some way, they’re gonna’ remind us of all the things that these Republicans did during the time of Trump.”
