Actor Robert De Niro Blasts Donald Trump

Robert De Niro has not let up on his criticism of Donald Trump, blasting the president-elect as “a bad example of this country” during a rally outside Trump Tower in New York City on Thursday night.



“I’m very happy to be here tonight with all of you and all of my overrated friends,” De Niro said at the start of his remarks, a reference to Trump calling Meryl Streep “overrated” in a tweet sent after Streep’s scathing Golden Globes speech earlier this month. De Niro added, “I want to read a few tweets to you. I know you haven’t heard them because they won’t be sent until later, in the middle of the night.”

The two-time Oscar winner then recited a trio of fictitious tweets written in the style of Trump.

“First: ‘De Niro’s career is a disaster. He was passed over for Godfather 4 and Magnificent Seven. Pathetic!'” De Niro joked. “Another tweet: ‘De Niro should give back his Oscars. Voting was rigged. There’s only one true Raging Bull and that is Vladimir Putin.’ One more! ‘An extremely credible source told me that Nobu uses raw fish in their sushi. And the portions are so small. Sad.’ (De Niro is the co-founder of the famed sushi restaurant.)

The Thursday event, dubbed We Stand United, was scheduled to feature appearances from De Niro, Rosie Perez, Michael Moore, Sally Field, Mark Ruffalo, Alec Baldwin, Rev. Al Sharpton, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and many others.

“Just like our Founding Fathers, you can love our country and not love everything about it,” De Niro said in his speech. “That’s understandable. You can love your city, as I do, and not love everything about it either. That may have been what I was thinking about when I said I wish you-know-who would leave this city. I don’t care where he goes, I just never thought he’d go to Washington. He’s a bad example of this country, this city.”

De Niro criticized Trump for his anti-immigrant rhetoric, noting “these huddled masses yearning to breathe free built our country and our lifeblood of our strong, diverse, beautiful New York City. They gave us the strength to prosper in the mid-70s when the government sent us the message to drop dead. They gave us the strength to recover after the tragedy of 9/11. Now they’re giving us the strength to persevere in the face of the promises of the incoming government.”

He added, “We’re all rooting for the new administration, of course, to abandon the divisive, racist, misogynist, ignorant plans it’s trumpeting and lead us with intelligence and compassion. Whatever happens, we Americans, we New Yorkers, we patriots, will stand united for our rights and the rights of our fellow citizens.”

De Niro has been a sharp critic of Trump for years and took issue with the former reality television host time and again during the presidential campaign in 2016. Back in August, he described Trump as “totally nuts” and unfit to lead America; in October, De Niro said he’d “like to punch in the face.” After Streep’s Golden Globes speech, during which she called Trump out for mocking the disability of a reporter, De Niro defended his former costar against Trump’s Twitter taunts.

“What you said was great. It needed to be said, and you said it beautifully,” De Niro said. “I have so much respect for you that you did it while the world was celebrating your achievements. I share your sentiments about punks and bullies. Enough is enough.”

De nerio should let Trump rest please. Why acting like a a sore loser since. Attaching him ever since the campaign time.

You all should get used to him. He's going to be around here for the next eight years.

Who is De niro, never heard of him before. Bloggers should stop giving these frustrated elements relevance. If you cannot live in a world where Trump is the president of USA, please do the world a favour and kill yourself.

They should leave Trump abeg. They did not do the needful by campaigning for Clinton and swaying their followers to vote for Clinton way so they should free him. Trump is their president.
