Actor Robert De Niro was interviewed by CNN’s Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources Sunday. During the interview, he dropped a couple of F-bombs against the people at Fox News. The host acted more amused than anything else at the actor’s D-List performance.

De Niro caused an audible “Woah” from someone off-screen when he said “F**k ’em. F**k ’em” in response to Stelter’s question about critics at Fox News. He used the same language during the Tony Awards in June 2018. So, Stelter asked why he uses that language. “We are in a terrible situation.”

“Sorry. Sorry,” the actor said.

“This is cable, so it’s not an FCC violation, but it still is a Sunday morning,” host Stelter commented.

Trump must be impeached, you see because we’re in a crisis. For some reason, De Niro thinks people are being “too gentle and genteel” about that sentiment. Really? Americans who pay attention to politics seem to be in a state of perpetual outrage. I see very little genteel behavior on either side.

“It has to happen,” De Niro told CNN Business’ Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources” Sunday. He called the present political situation a crisis, “and too many people are too gentle and genteel about it. And we’re in a crisis situation, period,” De Niro said. Two days earlier, on the red carpet for the New York Film Festival opening night premiere of his new film “The Irishman,” De Niro told Variety he hopes Trump gets impeached.

Like other celebrities and public figures, De Niro has a history of anti-Trump and anti-Republican comments. When Alec Baldwin briefly hosted a talk show, De Niro was his first guest. During the premiere episode in October 2018, De Niro said he was “offended” by Trump and also by Republicans. In other words, criticism of Trump is expected of De Niro in these interviews. When De Niro walked out on the stage at the Tony Awards to present an award but first had to curse the president, he was rewarded with a standing ovation from the audience. This is how normal behavior looks to them.

De Niro called President Trump a “gangster” and labeled him as “crazy”. When Stelter asked if he meant crazy as in the medical sense, De Niro said yes. Remember the phony psychiatric diagnosing of the president as mentally insane or at the least, unstable, by guests on CNN in past interviews? Facts don’t matter. Science doesn’t matter to the party of science. It’s all about emotions and the inability of the left to accept the election of Donald Trump in 2016. Trump broke a lot of people.

“Possibly medically too,” De Niro said. “I didn’t think that before, but now I actually – when I saw him out in front of the helicopter waiting to go somewhere, talking endlessly and sweating and sweating … this guy, he’s not even aware of what he’s – he should at least ask somebody for a handkerchief or something and dry himself off.”

“There’s just something very strange,” the actor added.

Sweating? Excessive talking and sweating are what Dr. De Niro bases his medical diagnosis on? Has he ever seen Robert Francis O’Rourke or any number of politicians out in the sun for a lengthy question and answer stop? De Niro has so little to work with because it’s his emotions, not actual facts, that moves him to such vulgar behavior. He is so Trump deranged that he has no other way to respond.

Stelter asked if De Niro thinks Trump is just acting. He was asking if Trump really believes the things he says. De Niro says yes, Trump may be acting. He also dragged FNC into it again.

“In some ways, I think he is,” De Niro answered. “As I think some of these pundits on Fox are too,” he volunteered. “Because I can’t believe they would actually buy into this craziness. This guy should not be president, period.”

He thinks this way about Trump supporters, too, you know. There is no way that Trump supporters can actually believe in what they believe. Leftists are incapable of understanding that conservatives really think differently. De Niro attacks on a personal level, though, instead of raising objections to actual policies or actions taken by the Trump administration. He doesn’t like Trump and that’s all he’s got.

Like Alec Baldwin and Stephen Colbert, Robert De Niro cashes in on their hatred of Trump. Baldwin plays Trump on SNL and Colbert created Our Cartoon President for Showtime. De Niro played Robert Mueller on SNL. He’s trying to continue that gig longer.

As for his portrayal of Mueller on “Saturday Night Live,” De Niro said he hopes to bring the character back. He said he’s already spoken to the show’s Executive Producer Lorne Michaels about doing a sketch depicting “all the things people would have wished Mueller had done — would have done, should have done, could have done,” while he was acting as special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

De Niro and his ilk can’t let it go. Instead of being trapped in an endless cycle of yelling at the sky about Trump, he’d do more good supporting a candidate in the 2020 election cycle. He can’t help himself, apparently, and his own personal hell over the last presidential election is of his own making. Just wait until Trump wins re-election.

EXAMPLE 1A as to why actors should act and stay out of political matters.

He is an A+ actor.
He is an F thinker.

The Godfather was his first and last truly good movie. What an overrated puke.

I disagree with the A+ actor part of your statement. He’s a type-cast, average Hollywood hack.

No matter what you think of DeNiro as an actor and I think he is excellent, there is definitely something not quite right about him. He lacks the necessary filter to be trusted around normal individuals in a social setting.

H. L. Mencken on actors:

The following is an excerpt from a piece entitled ‘The Cerebral Mime’ originally published in his Prejudices series.

“Of all actors, the most offensive to the higher cerebral centers is the one who pretends to intellectuality. His alleged intelligence, of course, is purely imaginary: no man of genuinely superior intelligence has ever been an actor. Even supposing a young man of appreciable mental powers to be lured to the stage, as philosophers are occasionally lured to bordellos, his mind would be inevitably and almost immediately destroyed by the gaudy nonsense issuing from his mouth every night. That nonsense enters into the very fiber of the actor. He becomes a grotesque boiling down of all the preposterous characters that he has impersonated. Their characteristics are seen in his manner, in his reactions to stimuli, in his point of view. He becomes a walking artificiality, a strutting dummy, a thematic catalogue of imbecilities.”

Without a script, that’s the best he can come up with. He’s not exactly William F. Buckley, is he?

I’ll bet he’s a real peach to be around.

I was always told that while growing up. Illiterate individuals go to poor language to mask their lack of knowledge. As true today as it was when I was a kid, years ago. In fact, it was so long ago that CNN would be suspended for awhile had they let that curse tirade go on for more than a second. The guy is a wanna be goon. Actually he used to hang around some of the "wise guys". Too bad he did not end up like some of them did.

Robert Heinlein:

“But there seems to have been an actual decline in rational thinking. The United States had become a place where entertainers and professional athletes were mistaken for people of importance. They were idolized and treated as leaders; their opinions were sought on everything and they took themselves just as seriously — after all, if an athlete is paid a million or more a year, he knows he is important … so his opinions of foreign affairs and domestic policies must be important, too, even though he proves himself to be both ignorant and subliterate every time he opens his mouth.”

50 years of cocaine will do that.

I gather you didn’t like Raging Bull ( for which he won his second Oscar ) and the iconic, Taxi Driver?

Did he give any specifics? Or are we just to believe what HE thinks is ‘craziness’?

Oh wow, DiNiro can curse out the President. I wouldn’t have expected otherwise. On the acting side, I don’t think I’ve gone to see any of his movies, I don’t know any of the titles either.
