Obsessed anti-Trump zealot and Hollywood actor Robert De Niro delivered a scathing attack on President Donald Trump’s children Monday, telling the hosts of “The View” that if Trump’s kids were his kids, he’d disown them.
“I don’t want my kids to take this the wrong way, but if my kids did what these kids did, I wouldn’t want to be related to them,” he said after being asked by co-host Joy Behar about his recent accusation that the president and his children are like a gangster family.
“I would disown them. I’d have a serious talk with them,” he added.
Of course, De Niro refused to provide any examples of the president’s children behaving in a gangster-like way. But for examples of De Niro behaving in a gangster-like way, ironically and tellingly enough, look here.
“First of all, it’s an impossibility; my kids are not like that, of course,” his rant continued. “But if I disagreed with them of things of principle … we do now … how strongly I feel about it, because I feel we’re at a crossroads, as we all know.”
“This guy would want to get elected a third term. He’s joked about it. He’d want o to be king for life. All these things are true. We see that. We know that about him now. This guy has got to be taken seriously, and he’s got to be taken out of office.”
His remarks were based on what he’d said in an interview with The New York Times published earlier this month in which he’d contrasted the gangsters he plays on the big screen with the Trump family’s allegedly gangster ways.
“Trump has people who follow him who are crazy and want to do crazy things,” the actor claimed. “What we’re doing in film, it’s like a dream. We know it’s not real. There are people who will take anything to be real and that we have no control over.”
“The president is supposed to set an example of trying to do the right thing. Not be a nasty little b****. Because that’s what he is. He’s a petulant little punk. There’s not one thing that I see in him or his family, not any redeeming qualities. They’re out on the take. It’s like a gangster family.”
There’s no concrete evidence to justify such disturbing conspiracy theories about America’s duly elected president. If anything, the evidence suggests the opposite — that instead of being “on the take,” Trump and his family have been eager to give back.
While campaigning for office, he promised, “If I’m elected president, I’m accepting no salary.”
Records show that he’s kept that promise by donating his salary to the following departments:
- Third quarter 2019: Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health
- Second quarter 2019: Surgeon General’s office
- First quarter 2019: Department of Agriculture
- Fourth quarter 2018: Department of Homeland Security
- Third quarter 2018: National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism
- Second quarter 2018: Small Business Administration
- First quarter 2018: Veterans Administration
- Fourth quarter 2017: Transportation Department
- Third quarter 2017: Health and Human Services’ (opioid crisis)
- Second quarter 2017: Education Department
- First quarter 2017: National Park Service
Meanwhile, the president’s children have spearheaded a campaign to implement paid family/maternity leave.
De Niro reportedly displayed a similar level of insanity when asked by “The View” ho-cost whether it’s worth it to impeach the president “even if that means that could risk Republicans winning in the election.”
“We don’t have time for that,” the obsessively anti-Trump actor promptly replied. “He did something wrong. He has to pay for it, period.”
A growing plurality of Americans disagree …
When then asked by Behar whether he genuinely believes the president is as bad as, if not worse, than the gangsters he’s played on the big screen, he effusively replied yes.
“To me, he is,” the actor maintained. “Because he has no understanding that I can see of the outside world other than anything around him. He has no idea of what his purpose in life as the president should be, and that is to pull the country together, to be for the people, to heal wounds, not to open them up and pour salt on them.”
“I always say he’s a low life. And he knows he’s a low life. He knows everything he projects about negative things on individuals, on situations, on institutions, he’s saying about himself.”
But couldn’t the argument be made that De Niro is projecting himself onto Trump? Earlier this very year, the actor suffered a public meltdown (one of many that have dotted his career in the limelight) and publicly berated his driver on the phone for not showing up to pick him up at the right spot.
And then later in the year — just two months ago, in fact — his former female assistant, Chase Robinson, filed a lawsuit accusing the actor of harassing, berating, and bullying her.
“De Niro communicated in a hostile, abusive, and intimidating manner with Ms. Robinson,” the lawsuit read.
“He attacked her in gender terms, calling her a ‘b***h’ and a ‘brat.’ In speaking to Ms. Robinson, he called his female business partner a ‘c**t’ and referred to his executive assistants as ‘the girls.’ De Niro would unleash tirades against Ms. Robinson — often while he was intoxicated — in which he denigrated, berated, bullied, and hurled expletives at her.”
The suit further claimed that the actor would:
- Joke around about his Viagra prescription.
- Joke around about his “paramour.”
- Tell Robinson to imagine him on the toilet.
- Make Robinson scratch his back.
- Make Robinson button his shirts.
- Make Robinson fix his collars.
- Make Robinson tie his ties.
- Make Robinson “prod him awake when he was in bed.”
- Do nothing if one of his friends slapped Ms. Robinson on the butt.
Just to double-check, who again is the low life!?
