Robert De Niro Comments About Donald Trump January 2018

Robert De Niro's Nickname For Donald Trump Is Guaranteed to Make Your Jaw Drop

On Jan. 9, Robert De Niro had the pleasure of introducing Meryl Streep at the National Board of Review awards gala for her most recent work in The Post. But what caught our eye is the fact that he also took the opportunity to throw some very intense jabs at Donald Trump. The 74-year-old started off by drawing comparisons between the time the movie takes place, during Nixon's presidency, and now. "That story took place nearly 50 years ago, but there are many parallels today obviously. At the time of the story, Donald Trump was suffering from bone spurs," he said to the audience. "Today, the world is suffering from the real Donald Trump . . . This f**king idiot is the president . . . the guy is a f**king tool."

De Niro also touched on Trump's continuous attacks against the media. "Our government today, with the propping of our baby-in-chief — the Jerkoff-in-chief I call him — has put the press under siege, ridiculing it through trying to discredit it though outrageous attacks and lies." By now, we would have expected Trump to respond via Twitter — but it seems he has his hands full with trying to prove his campaign didn't collude with Russia to win the 2016 election.
