Robert De Niro slams 'fake president' Trump, says he wouldn't last long even in the real gangster world
De Niro further made comments about Trump's psyche, saying he knew the reason he used terms such as 'fake news'. 'He calls everything else fake because he knows he's fake, said 'The Irishman' actor.
Veteran actor Robert De Niro, who has never been shy about his disdain for President Donald Trump, continued his criticism of the commander-in-chief during his appearance on MSNBC on Saturday, November 9. The 76-year-old actor told host Joy Reid that he did not think Trump could last as a tough guy in the real world
"I have no idea why they follow him,” De Niro said regarding Trump's supporters adding how "he's not even a good gangster. He can't even keep his word about anything. I think in the real gangster world, he wouldn't last long. He lasts long in his own little real estate world, where he's the boss because he's the boss and he inherited all that money and he's a fool. In the real world, he wouldn't last long. That's my feeling.”
Calling Trump a "fake president" who needed to be “held accountable” with the impeachment inquiry, De Niro reinstated that "if we don't go through this impeachment inquiry, we're letting him get away with something," adding how “He has done something wrong, he has to pay for that. He has to be held accountable.”
De Niro further made comments about Trump's psyche, saying he knew the reason Trump uses terms such as "fake news". “He calls everything else fake because he knows he's fake,” said 'The Irishman' actor.
Back in October, De Niro had called the president "dangerous" and a "low-life" who is "going to ruin this country." "He's beyond a horrible person. I went on television the day after he was elected and I said, 'I'm willing to give him the beneﬁt of the doubt. But he's worse than we ever thought he would be. He's an idiot. He's a fool. He's a buffoon. He's silly. He's tacky. He's dangerous", said the outspoken Trump critic. "That stupid show The Apprentice, people bought it. They buy into it... They created a monster."
Even then, he had claimed he believed the president has "blood on his hands".
