Hollywood star Robert De Niro had yet another rant against Donald Trump and his supporters this week, saying that even though he is “not political,” it made him “so angry and so enraged” that people actually voted for the president back in 2016.
While appearing on MSNBC’s “The Beat,” De Niro said that he still can’t believe that Trump actually got elected in 2016 after talking about what he thinks we need in a leader.
“We need someone to lead us through in a kind of father figure way or mother figure way,” the 77 year-old actor said. “To bring us through and show that they love us, care about us, and want our best. They are looking out for us. It’s the total opposite with someone like him. It confounds me how he ever got to be elected. He did. Crazy things happen. That’s what we need in a leader. In any leader. That’s what we were going to get with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”
De Niro went on to inadvertently make it clear that his disdain for Trump is personal in nature, as he admitted to never having an interest in politics.
“I’m not like political, but I was so angry and so enraged and confounded that he would actually behave the way he did and that people bought it,” he said. “I now I see many many many people in the country feel this way. I’m sad about other people who don’t. They are accepted him and would have voted for him and have voted for him. I don’t know why. That’s all that it was from the very beginning. How could this guy behave this way? That’s all.”
This is Trump derangement syndrome at its absolute worst. Many of the liberals who frequently spew hate at Trump and his supporters don’t actually know anything about politics. If they did, they would see all the incredible political accomplishments that Trump made in the first four years of his presidency.
Instead, all De Niro and many of his fellow lefties can see when they look at Trump is a person who they personally despise. The party of love has turned into the party of hate.
