A Disgraceful Robert De Niro Goes on Worst Anti-Trump Tirades Yet

With profanity-laced rants, 'Goodfellas' actor was up to his old tricks this weekend at the Tony Awards and elsewhere

Robert De Niro seems to spend more time on expressing his hatred for President Donald Trump than on his actual movie career these days — which would explain his declining filmography.

The “Taxi Driver” star has previously threatened to punch Trump in the face and called America under the current commander-in-chief “tragic dumba** comedy.”

In a recent speech to high school students, he was up to his old tricks.

At a New York awards ceremony for recipients of the Rosemary Breslin American Writer Award, De Niro dedicated part of his words to the president and Congress.

“So what about the truth? What does the truth even mean today? I mean, if you’re Donald Trump, it doesn’t mean anything. If you’re cowardly Republican enablers in Congress, you don’t let the truth stand in the way of pathetically clinging to power,” he said.

“Our country is led by a president who believes he can make up his own truth. And we have a word for that — bull****.”

He continued, “For example, you might say, as have many professionals, that Trump manifests a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of discharging duties of the president of the United States. That he’s afflicted with a narcissistic personality disorder.”

His vulgarity only got worse from there.

“That he’s a congenital liar. A mean-spirited, soulless, amoral, abusive con artist son of a b****. F*** Donald Trump. And I say this ’cause I am not political, but I am now. You guys are the future,” he added.

He then appeared to compare the president to Adolf Hitler.

“We’re in a dangerous situation … You know with Hitler, with other despots, people didn’t take them seriously. They laughed at them,” the 72-year-old said. “And then what happened — they turned around, and it was too late. We can’t let that happen in this country, and you guys are the ones to do it.”

Way to go, De Niro. Your blind hatred and obsession over Trump runs so deep you managed to hijack an event for American high school students and selfishly manipulated it into a platform for your own vulgar, leftist, and near-nonsensical ramblings.

The actor continued his anti-Trump ramblings at Sunday night’s televised Tony Awards.

“I’ll say one thing: F*** Trump,” De Niro said with his fists in the air after taking the stage. “It’s no longer down with Trump — it’s f*** Trump!”

Lovely.

“It’s no longer down with Trump — it’s f*** Trump!”

Wouldn’t it be nice if De Niro focused some of this energy on his movie career instead of directing blind rage at the president?
