We’d love to see Bobby D go “Raging Bull” on that azz!
Oscar-winner Robert DeNiro sat down with NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams in a special live conversation at the Tribeca Film Fest in New York on Saturday night, and while much of the interview focused on his career — he let it be known exactly what he thinks of Donald Trump and other GOP nitwits:
De Niro was perhaps never more animated and expressive than when asked about the current political climate in the United States. “I think of the possibility of the government being shut down, and I say, ‘How did we get to this point?’” he said. “I remember it happened years ago. And I just say, ‘How did we ever get to that point?’ Because the people who suffer are the one who have jobs where every week, they’ve gotta make these payments. How did we get there? What is this about? This is crazy. And I know Obama was trying to bridge the gap. His intentions are really good. Maybe some things are not as good as we all would like, but his intentions were right. A lot of these guys, they’re intentions are not even good. They’re just playing the game. And they’re playing with people’s lives.”
“A lot of people believe that this is as far apart as the two ideological sides of our country have been,” Williams said. “We keep saying that, and then a month later, they break their own pledge, and they get even further apart. Do you ever see it coming together? As I like to put it to people, if 9/11 didn’t do it — if 9/11 didn’t leave us more unified — what would?”
“Well, we’re unified in certain ways in this country, and in certain ways we’re not, to me,” De Niro responded, particularly baffled by certain Republicans in Washington and elsewhere who speak “a lot of nonsense.” “I won’t mention names, but certain people in the news the last couple weeks, just, what are they doing? It’s crazy. They’re making statements about people that they don’t even back up. Go get the facts before you start saying things about people. It’s like a big hustle. It’s like being a car salesman. Don’t go out there and say things unless you can back them up. How dare you? That’s awful to do. To just go out and speak and say these terrible things? Unless you just wanna get over and get the job. It’s crazy.”
While he initially elected not to name names, once Williams asked him if “Any of those people have shows on my network on Sunday night?” De Niro confirmed that he was talking about ol’ Toupee Face.
SMH… Good to see we aren’t the only ones sick of Trump and his attention whoring.
